Kip Moore to headline Case Labor of Love music fest benefitting Wounded Warrior Project

Case Construction Equipment is trading in machines for microphones Labor Day weekend as it plays host to a music festival in Wisconsin to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.

Case wants the Labor of Love Music Festival to not only entertain and raise money, but to also promote how important it is for veterans to get hired into skilled jobs in construction and manufacturing.

“There is a very real skilled labor shortage in America today, from welders and machinists to heavy equipment technicians and operators. It’s important we help develop that next generation of talent and our veterans may be our greatest resource,” North American Case vice president Jim Hasler said. “‘Labor of Love’ is all about making that connection and helping veterans locally and throughout the United States take that next step in their professional lives.”

Country music singer Kip Moore will headline the Labor Day concert, with local and regional bands filling out the bill. The event is going to be an all-day event at the Racine Festival Park in Racine, Wisconsin.

Labor of Love will also kick off the event with a ceremony to honor veterans, including their impact in construction and manufacturing.

“Labor Day is the perfect time to honor pride and dignity in work, and there may be no group that represents that more than the men and women of the armed services,” Moore said. “It’s my honor to pay tribute to these people, and all the hard-working people that come out to my shows, and to give back to a community that has been very supportive of me.”
