ALLEGANY, N.Y. (WKBW) — Lieutenant Colonel Patrick Miller, who saved the lives of his comrades after he was shot in the 2014 shooting spree at Fort Hood, is doing what he does time and time again - giving back to others.

LTC Miller is organizing the third annual Southern Tier Wounded Warrior Benefit Concert on July 27th in the Village of Allegany.

The fundraiser will be headlined by country music singer Montgomery Gentry, national recording artists Meg and Tyler, Eric Van Houten and New York State Country Music Hall of Famer Jack Ellis.

The event will also feature food, drinks, and autographed merchandise from the Bills and Sabres.

All money raised will go toward the Fisher House Foundation to help military families and Homes for Our Troops , which assists veterans with disabilities.

More than 1,500 people attended last year's event, helping organizers surpass their donation goal.

Festivities begin on the 27th at 3 p.m. at Fireman's Park, 188 West Main Street. Tickets are available for $25 pre-sale through Tix.com or $30 at the door. Children under 12 are free.
