The saying, “a heart as big as Texas,” certainly fits the Hands Across Texas organization, its many sponsors, Texas musicians, bands and volunteers. Those hearts and hands can and will reach throughout Texas and even farther in any of its sister states. Whenever there is a cause to be supported, disasters and a tragedy that touches lives, Hands Across Texas and their angels are always there to the rescue. In light of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy, again, Hands Across Texas, Bud Light, The New 93Q, Papa's Ice House, Spring, Texas, Pit Row BBQ and throngs of Texas musicians and bands, readily open their hearts and give of their talents and services freely to the Sandy Hook Memorial Benefit and Concert.

Sunday, January 27, 2013, Hands Across Texas and their hundreds of altruistic sponsors, musicians and bands, volunteers, members, friends and families are also are stretching out their arms to aid the families and community of the Sandy Hook Elementary School with the Hands Across Texas Sandy Hook Memorial Benefit and Concert. The event is packed with music concerts by Texas’ best Country music performers, delicious Pit Row BBQ plates, Papa's Ice House venue and Bud Light beverages, a silent auction and special fun things for the kids. The New 93Q FM - Houston’s best country radio station will be broadcasting live from Papa’s Ice House and the event.

Every single dollar raised by this benefit will go to the Newtown Youth and Family Services, Inc., a 501(c) 3 non-profit group in Newtown, Connecticut. This great organization has been heavily involved in the emergency counseling of families, community members and staff involved in the Sandy Hook Elementary school tragedy.

Please come out to Hands Across Texas’ heart-warming Sandy Hook Memorial Benefit event and concerts by some of the best Texas bands. Let the Newtown families know just how big Texas hearts can be. This benefit and organization needs your support and donations. Help the families in their counseling and healing through Hands Across Texas for the Newtown Youth and Family Services, Inc. These families lost those precious children, their brave teachers and principals forever by a tragically mentally-ill young man, who also took his own life after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. This tragedy could easily have happened to our precious little ones and family loved ones.
