Hundreds of students from Fort Worth, Mansfield and Southlake took to two stages at the World-Famous Billy Bob’s Texas in the Stockyards to raise funds and awareness for True Kids 1 Media Project (TK1MP).
The building now known as Billy Bob’s Texas was built in 1910 and was once an open-air barn used to house prize cattle for the Fort Worth Stock Show.
TK1MP has helped over 500 kids within their first six months, by empowering them with the skills and opportunity to express themselves through radio and new media production.
As the Director of True Kids 1, Andy “Rosey” Hayett said, “This was not only a juxtaposition of two forms of art – fashion and music, but also an opportunity for the kids to gain self-confidence through modeling and music – as well as learning to express themselves through art. We appreciate the support of Silk Threads to help us advance our mission of increasing the creative energy of these kids”.
