About the event
THE BELLOTTI OP
MEET YOU AT THE FINAL RALLY POINT
Written by founder Joshua Moyer
There are moments in your life you will never forget. A graduation, landing your dream job or the birth of your child. For me a phone call followed by numerous text messages. A normal weekend in December that should of been just another on the calendar will live on in me forever. The turning in my stomach that made me so sick I shutdown. On December 9th 2017 SGT. Matthew Bellotti took his life. A son and husband a brother. He was the light of the room in the worst of situations a smile could be found on the face of that boy from California. I stood with him when we got tattoos out of basic training. I stood with him when we were late to final formation and were punished for it. Memories flooded my mind and it was one of the hardest things to do. Bury your friend, your brother, the world moves on but the battle remains the same in every veteran. "Maybe it'll be easier to just end it all." I stand here today after pledging to Matt's family to do good out of this tragedy and run this organization by this statement.
" For every veteran suicide it is a family destroyed left with a hole that remains until the end of time. For those that suffered and lost their battle we remember you and will meet you at the final rally point. For those who face there demons everyday we have your 6. In the darkest of times the strongest bonds are built let us help get you to the other side."

President and Founder of The Bellotti Op
What is our plan?
In the summer of 2022 we want to fulfill are promise to The Bellotti family and stand our feet and begin the march on not just veteran suicide but all veteran issues faced. We have decided that a concert in our local area will push us where we need to be to fund this journey with more events in the future for veterans and their families. This comes at a cost.
Rental of property:
$50,000 - $75,000
Stage and production:
With many more costs going into it. We are not asking for the community to fund entire event what we are asking for is the funding to be able to get ball rolling and the big company sponsors will follow shortly after and help us with our goal. The more we raise the better the production. We have capped the event where if we hit $750,000 it will be a 2 day event and we will spend every dollar on the best show we can provide. Help us realize this dream and fund All American Fest.
Why should you sponsor?
