Hope Fest: Live From Harwood!



Featuring Texas country artists Kyle Hutton, Cas Haley, and a special surprise guest, Harwood International’s annual event gives hope to four amazing nonprofit organizations that support children and adults with special needs and children without fathers.

Hope Fest was started by Katelyn and Oliver Barbier-Mueller, executive vice president of Harwood International, as a way to give back to organizations they have been involved with for years. “Oliver and I wanted to host the event because after working in two of the organizations I saw first-hand the impact they have on the special needs community and how important they are to these families,” Katelyn said. In its first year, Hope Fest raised over $230,000 through the generosity of sponsors and over 500 guests.

In its second year, Hope Fest will support four organizations:

Hope Fest will feature three outstanding musicians including a notable surprise country headliner, Texas Singer-Songwriter Kyle Hutton, and Cas Haley, runner-up on season two of America’s Got Talent. The doors will open at 4:00 PM and bands will play throughout the evening. General admission tickets are $45 providing event-goers access to the concert as well as participation in raffles. VIP tickets are $125 and include unlimited beer, wine, light bites, participation in raffles and concert viewing from Happiest Hour’s rooftop patio. There is also a Couples VIP ticket available for $200.
