Boys and Girls Country Spring Festival, May 5

Bring your whole family to Boys and Girls Country May 5 for its annual Spring Festival fundraiser. You’ll find all kinds of fun at Spring Festival including 90 booths of activities and games, petting zoo, hay ride, pony rides, inflatable slides and bounces, and live entertainment from Houston Grand Opera, Ballet Folklorico, Cy Woods High School Marching Band, Water 2 Wine and more. Admission is free. Lunch tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for children. Buy $10 raffle tickets for your chance at a family trip for four to Disneyworld (airfare and hotel), Apple iPad, and 37″ LCD TV. The event is located in Hockley about 35 miles west of downtown Houston.

Boys and Girls Country does not receive federal or state grants for ongoing support, which is why this fundraiser is so important to them. This Christian home has supported families in crisis for 41 years when parents are unable to care for their kids. Last year’s event raised $600,000 for this amazing nonprofit.
