A benefit concert that has raised more than $300,000 in Vermont is coming to DFW this fall. The National Life Group Do Good Fest at Levitt Pavilion Arlington will support Parkland Health’s Pediatric Behavioral Health Program (PBH).

“National Life has always been purpose-driven,” said Beth Rusnock, President of the National Life Group Foundation. “Helping protect children and families is what we do. That’s why supporting children’s mental health is a focus of ours. We’re excited to introduce Texas to Do Good Fest so we can come together to celebrate and support kids.”

“The Levitt is a place where both good music and good things for the community happen, so it’s the perfect location for the Texas leg of the Do Good Fest,” added Letatia Teykl, executive director of the Levitt Pavilion. “We know everyone is going to have a blast listening to Gangstagrass, and we encourage our guests to be as generous as possible in support of the wonderful work being carried out by the Parkland Foundation.”

Screening for behavioral health issues should be as common as vision and hearing screenings. Unfortunately, there aren’t enough services to address the need in Dallas County – especially for those who are uninsured. Parkland’s PBH Program helps address children’s mental health by giving local doctors the tools to identify and treat behavioral health issues early. This innovative program is uniquely designed to serve

those most in need: kids from low-income backgrounds or who are uninsured/underinsured, often preventing them from receiving behavioral services through other means.

“Every child deserves the chance to live a healthy, active and fulfilling life, which is why it’s critically important to identify and address children’s mental health needs,” said Michael A. Horne, EdD, MPP, President and CEO, Parkland Foundation. “Thanks to sponsors and generous donors like National Life, programs like Pediatric Behavioral Health can help those most in need.”

The event will feature food trucks, a Nonprofit Village, a VIP Lounge, and live music featuring Gangstagrass, an infectious fusion of socially conscious hip hop and bluegrass musical virtuosity, along with an opening act to be announced.

Do Good Fest is free to attend, and donations for the Pediatric Behavioral Health Program at Parkland are encouraged at the event. The concert will be at 7 p.m. Oct. 7 at Levitt Pavilion Arlington, 100 W. Abram St.
