Katy Perry. is. AWESOME. By allowing Veterans Matter to auction off a concert package, the winner has helped fund housing deposits for homeless veterans – 17 in Austin, TX and 5 in Detroit.
Thanks to the philanthropy of Katy Perry, 22 homeless veterans in Michigan and Texas will soon cross the threshold into permanent housing. Perry is a supporter of Veterans Matter, a growing national program that works with HUD and VA to house homeless veterans. As part of its fundraising efforts, Veterans Matter auctioned a Katy Perry Prizmatic Tour concert package with the winner, Scott Vaughn of Oakton, Virginia, getting to be the superstar’s VIP guest with concert tickets and to meet her backstage before her recent tour stop in Cleveland.
“Thank you so much for helping Veterans Matter, it is so important that we help those who fought for our freedom,” Perry told a delighted Scott Vaughn.
