Greensboro, NC  -- Music, food and entertainment highlighted Saturday night's  "A Night of Stars -- Saluting Our Veterans" at the Carolina Theatre in downtown Greensboro.

The goal was to bring healing and hope to wounded veterans and animals in need.

Proceeds from Saturday's event will benefit Patriot Rovers, a non-profit based in Guilford County that rescues dogs, names them after fallen soldiers and trains them to be service dogs for vets suffering from PTSD and traumatic brain injuries.

"Because of good partners like maCares, Market America, and the generous individuals and corporations who have donated to the event, Patriot Rovers will be able to provide more soldiers with service dogs.  It's a win for everyone - the dogs, the wounded warriors, and the families of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice," says Kathy Bull, Executive Director of Patriot Rovers.
