For the past couple of weeks, when you turn on the television, the main topic of conversation has been Hurricane Harvey, a destructive storm which terrorized cities and states along the Gulf of Mexico especially Texas and Louisiana.
Some of the images and stories that we have seen and read about have been heartbreaking and horrifying. Millions of people lost their homes, belongings, and unfortunately, their own lives because of the catastrophic destruction.
In times of need, we must rise up as human beings, come together, and help one another. That is exactly what Mark McKinney and Conquer Entertainment are doing.
On September 16 at 6 PM, Mark McKinney and Conquer Entertainment are hosting a benefit concert to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey. The “United States of Texas” Benefit will feature Mark McKinney and other special guests at the River Road Ice House in New Braunfels, Texas.
Mark McKinney is a Conquer Entertainment artist and UnFranchise Owner. Unfortunately, Hurricane Harvey passed through Mark and his wife Cassie’s community, Port Aransas, Texas, and destroyed everything in its path. The community has been left battered and broken. Port Aransas has a long, long road of rebuilding ahead, but with inspiring people like Mark and Cassie leading the charge, the town will recover and restore its community to excellence.
Please, go to the official landing page for the event at www.StateOfTexasBenefit.com. The concert will have special raffles and auctions to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Harvey. If you cannot make the event, you can still donate to the cause by going to that landing page. The most important thing about this benefit is that the money is going directly to the people. We will be able to track every penny to ensure donations and items are reaching the victims of Hurricane Harvey.
Like we said earlier, not everyone can attend the special benefit concert. We also know that not everyone can donate money and resources at this time. That being said, there are plenty of ways that you can still help the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Here are some ways, suggested by JR Ridinger on BeingJRRidinger.com, in which people can help out.
Six Easy Ways to Help with the Hurricane Harvey Benefit Effort:

No worries — you can still help by just getting the word out, attached are graphics that you can use as your social media backdrops, a flyer you can post, and links you can share out!
