The Court Yard Hounds, featuring the sisters who started the Dixie Chicks, will be performing their classic Texas-roots music. Enjoy an intimate live show, dinner, cocktails, an auction and a private rooftop after party. VIP tickets will also get you into a fun bowling pre-party!

Proceeds from this benefit will all go to KING, whose vision is that all Texas youth in foster care will have the tools and support they need to become successful individuals when they transition out of the foster care system.

Several different types of music lessons are offered by KING at no cost to the child or foster family. Kids take lessons in piano, percussion, guitar, clarinet and more. They also perform and have an opportunity to make live recordings in a professional recording studio. It’s an amazing organization, and you can help them by attending this classy benefit.

Ticket prices range based on the level of sponsorship you would like to commit to, find more information on that here.
