CHARLESTON, S.C. - Joe Riley Park will host the second annual "Salute to Service" concert in partnership with Budweiser to honor the service of our nation's heroes on Friday, May 25 at 7 p.m. to kick off Memorial Day weekend.

The benefit concert is another piece in the Charleston club's commitment to our nation's armed forces. In 2016, the RiverDogs were the recipient of the Charles K. Murphy Patriot Award, presented to a team or individual in Minor League Baseball for outstanding support of the United States Armed Forces and veterans, both at the ballpark and in the community.
Budweiser, an American-style lager, was introduced in 1876 when company founder Adolphus Busch set out to create the United States' first truly national beer brand - brewed to be universally popular and transcend regional tastes. Each batch of Budweiser stays true to the same family recipe used by five generations of Busch family brewmasters. Budweiser is a medium-bodied, flavorful, crisp and pure beer with blended layers of premium American and European hop aromas, brewed for the perfect balance of flavor and refreshment. Budweiser is made using time-honored methods including "kraeusening" for natural carbonation and Beechwood aging, which results in unparalleled balance and character.
