The great big country music line up for us at Hope Fest is all for a really important cause The American Cancer Society here in Lubbock!

I had a wonderful opportunity to talk to Hope Fest Executive Director Chase Dowling and his passion and enthusiasm for this big concert festival featuring an incredible lineup including Casey Donahew and Parker Mc Collum, Grant Gilbert and Cameron Hobbs was inspiring!

"You purchase a ticket to change your life and make a difference in somebody elses," Dowling said, "I think people are going to come out, they're going to have a good time and they're going to leave there with a new understanding of what it truly means to live life to the very fullest and ..all in all your helping other people at the end of the day so it's going to be incredible!" Dowling enthused.

He has done tremendous work on a local level with the American Cancer Society and here in the interview you can hear more about the local sub-chapters that are making a huge difference for Lubbock cancer patients including Hope Lodge and Drive For Hope.

It's so good to know that all of the ticket proceeds from Hope Fest are going to help such an important cause.

Make plans to get out for an incredible festival, music, food and fun for the whole family. Lonestar 99.5 is proud to team up and be out for the big day April 7th at South Plains Fair Park Coliseum. Make plans to join us and as Hope Fest says, let's 'Party with a purpose!".
