Hands across Texas (HAT), an organization dedicated to helping fellow Texan communities with unforeseen life changes, reaches out to those that are in need to provide relief and help rebuild lives of those affected by unfortunate events.
Hands Across Texas will join Newtown Youth & Family Services, a 501(c)3 nonprofit group, in hosting a Sandy Hook Memorial Benefit Concert Saturday, January 27, from noon to 10pm at Papa’s Ice House in Spring, TX (314 Pruitt Road).
Every cent raised by the fundraiser will go directly to the Newtown Youth & Family Services, in consideration of the recent Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting last month. Anyone and everyone is invited and encouraged to attend this event featuring The NEW 93Q, barbeque, live music on two stages, a silent auction, raffle drawings, kids activities, and more.

Kids packages, offered at $10, will include choice of a hot dog or slice of pizza, with a drink and three TBA kids activities. Additional tickets for kids activities will be $2 each or three for $5.
