HOUSTON/HOCKLEY, TX – Boys and Girls Country will hold its 39th Spring Festival on Saturday, May 6. Spring Festival is a family event featuring games, activities and food for all ages. New this year is the addition of Christian music and headlining the event is KB. Other acts include Tedashii, Hollyn and the Robbie Seay Band. Spring Festival began 38 years ago as a picnic hosted by the Boys and Girls Country Women’s Auxiliary and has grown to an event that brings more than 3,500 people out to the campus in Hockley.
Event Chairs Bill and Celia Aimone are helping raise funds for Boys and Girls Country to express their commitment to taking action on behalf of children. “We are excited to chair what has become a family tradition on the Boys and Girls Country campus. Not only is it fun for everyone, but it raises vital funds to care for more than 100 children and young adults that call Boys and Girls Country home. This year’s addition of Christian music is an exciting change, and we hope to see everyone out there! There is truly something for everyone at this year’s Spring Festival.”
Trenegy, a Houston-based management consulting firm, is a Premier level event sponsor.
Boys and Girls Country has provided a safe and nurturing place for 1,435 youth who are now responsible contributing adults. The agency does not rely on federal or state grants for ongoing support and is not a United Way member agency. Contributions come from individuals, businesses, civic groups, churches, and foundations.
