The Big BIG Benefit came about by In Depth Events, an event management firm based in McKinney, TX. Hearing and seeing what happened in Houston broke our hearts and we wanted to do something to give back. Bringing Texans together for a day of music, food, and fun felt like a great way to bring some life back to our great state. We are “Texans Helping Texans”!
Who, What, When, Where, Why?
Located in Lone Star Park on Sunday, October 1st of 2017, In Depth Events in association with Epicenter Productions will be hosting The Big BIG Benefit for the Houston Relief from Hurricane Harvey. There will be live music all day, food trucks, merchandise, crafts, and more!
October 1st will consist high energy live music, including original artists and tribute acts covering everything from Led Zeppelin to Fleetwood Mac. There will be food trucks, craft vendors, merchandise, and sponsors all around the lot. With the help of our amazing sponsors, The Big BIG Benefit will be an unforgettable weekend.
Our event layout calls for 41 booth spaces, and to make sure that we are “Texans Helping Texans”, we are donating a portion of our spaces to 503.c non-profits in the Dallas / Ft Worth area at no charge to them.
Where will my money be going?
With The Big BIG Benefit, we are striving to make sure as much of the proceeds as possible go toward charities. We will make sure 75% go toward local charities in the Houston, Rockport, Corpus Christi, and Galveston area. In total, there will be ten charities we are donating to including Rockport-Fulton Good Samaritans, Houston Area Women’s Center, and Star of Hope Mission.
One charity will be our focus with the majority of our donations, Food Bank of Corpus Christi. While many people are donating to the Houston area, we wanted to make sure ours went to one of the smaller surrounding cities that need the help. Corpus Christi was one of the first hit by Harvey and thousands of people lost everything. With the donations going to the Food Bank of Corpus Christi, we feel we can help more people and most importantly, our benefactors know exactly where the money is going.
In Depth Events is thrilled to host The Big BIG Benefit for the Houston Relief from Hurricane Harvey. When Texas is in need, Texans helping Texans is the main focus apart from other things in the news. This is our home and God Bless Texas!
