Each ticket for the event was $25, and proceeds from the 9th annual performance went to Operation Support Our Troops America. The charity, formed by a couple of Naperville moms, supports the morale and well-being of U.S. troops while at home and abroad.

Concertgoers also enjoyed acts such as The Voices, Audio Adrenaline, and The Sempletons to name a few.

The family friendly event included children's activities, food and beverages, even some patriotic items were up for sale.

Larry Church of Carol Stream attended the very first concert more than eight years ago. Since then he has been to seven out of the nine.

"I have always enjoyed the Rockin' for the Troops concert," Church said.
