"A Place to Stay," a free concert event, will feature and is inspired by the music of Radney Foster and Kyle Hutton from their newly released “The Foster EP”. They will be joined by very special guests, Texas’ First Lady Cecilia Abbott, Commissioner of DFPS Hank Whitman, Director of Fostering Hope Austin Julie Kouri, and others. The evening event will inspire and educate attendees on the current opportunities to become involved in enriching the lives of children in the Texas foster care system. Child placement agencies, state agency representatives and foster/adoption non-profits will be on-site to provide “next steps” for those who would like to explore what it means to get involved. Brought to you by KOKE FM, LifeAustin Church and the Real Life Real Music Foundation, The Place to Stay Concert is an all-ages, family friendly, free to the public event.
