BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) -

The Lt. Dan Band is giving a whole bunch of money back to Beaufort County because the group in charge of Lt. Dan Week in Beaufort is no longer holding events there.

The Island Packet reports that the leader of the group that conducts Lt. Dan Week has agreed to give back an accommodations tax grant from Beaufort County.

The county requested the money because the Lt. Dan Band concert, which the headline event of the week-long fund-raiser for disabled veterans is moving to the Citadel in Charleston.

The move of the Sept. 14 concert with Gary Sinise and the Lt. Dan Band was announced April 12.

Three days later, the county's finance committee voted to request that $13,900 grant given for the event returned.
