“More than 3 million children witness domestic violence in their homes every year.”
When we scroll through our feeds and skim the daily news headlines, facing real statistics like the one above can induce anxiety and feelings of hopelessness. As the story goes, real change starts with you. But how could we, as individuals, be capable of combatting something so severe?
Well, we are, and we can because as our story goes, real change starts with you and a kickass music and arts festival.
What if we told you that, for as little as $25*, you absolutely can make a difference for real families facing these real statistics within your own community? Not only can that difference change the lives of these children and families, but it will also grant you access to a local music and arts festival.
Now, what if we told you that this bumpin’ two-day, 26-performance, vendor-filled, camper-friendly, keg-tapping, art-promoting, waterfront party of all hometown parties exists with the sole purpose of providing necessary assistance for even more families fleeing domestic violence? That’s right. All proceeds of the Hometown Get Down Music Festival directly benefit The Bernie House, a longer-term housing program for families fleeing domestic violence, which has a 99% success rate.
By attending the 11th Annual Hometown Get Down, you’re offering a second chance to those without much hope, and you’re giving these families a voice that will echo beyond the stages and across Montgomery County. Additionally, this year’s festival proceeds will, literally, help build a second home for these non-offending parents and children in Ann Arundel County.
For the price of a ticket, we can show you an incredibly good time, and you can help create a safe home where families can escape violence and learn that life has so much more to offer.
*Advanced ticket price (until 8/21/18): 1 Day $25, 2 Days is $45 and includes camping. Regular ticket price (after 8/21/18): 1 Day $35, 2 Days is $55 includes camping
