It is through this annual event that Community Storehouse and 500 community members come together for A Night of Giving, as we strive to meet the educational and overall well being needs of children in our local school districts. We are excited to announce our 17th Annual Hope Dinner and Auction will be held at the beautiful Omni Hotel in Fort Worth. We will kick off with a wonderful complimentary cocktail hour; enjoy an elegant & festive dinner, marked with a private concert by Texas Country Artist Jack Ingram. Your participation is a step towards restoring hope in our every day efforts, but more importantly in the lives of our local children living at or below the poverty line.
In 2018, we have experienced a huge growth in the demands for our services; As the only Children’s Charity in Northeast Tarrant County whose focus is keeping children in the classroom, we invite you to join us for a Night of Hope; to help change the future of over 4,100 local children.
Welcome our 2019 Entertainment for the Evening: Jack Ingram
Throughout a recording career that has spanned more than 20 years, Jack Ingram has maintained a reputation for uncompromising, personally charged song craft and energetic, charismatic performances, earning him prominent stature in a prestigious tradition of iconoclastic singer-songwriters. Ingram’s prior work has won him a fiercely devoted fan base as well as reams of critical acclaim, and now Midnight Motel marks a creative milestone for the veteran artist, his sound ever evolving while showcasing some of his most expressive, emotionally raw songwriting to date.
Ingram made Midnight Motel independently to avoid outside influences and have creative freedom to write and record. “It was really important to me at this point in my life to avoid thinking about any commercial decisions about the music,” explains Ingram. “Every night after my kids went to bed, I’d go into my music room and stay in there until about three or four, just working out the songs like I did at the beginning of my career. Or while on the road, sit up late at night writing in motel rooms. I wanted to bring people into that space with me.”
