For the past five years, National Life has been hosting the Do Good Fest, a free summer concert to benefit Branches of Hope, a fund that provides financial support to cancer patients with extraordinary expenses, from groceries to gas money.
In 2019, there will be an estimated 1,762,450 new cancer cases diagnosed in the United States. Cancer takes an enormous physical and emotional toll on a person. A cancer diagnosis can mean a reduced income and increased expenses.
In hopes to bring change and support to Branches of Hope in a fun way, we invited our favorite bands to perform on The Lawn at National Life Group and only charged for parking. Since 2014, we’ve hosted thousands of attendees and have raised $185,000!
We bring together the best of what Vermont has to offer with incredibly talented artists such as Michael Franti, Noah Kahan and Hailey Knox. We also offer delicious refreshments from some of the most mouth-watering food trucks and vendors in the area. Increase your awareness by visiting our nonprofit stations, entertain your kids with family friendly activities and finish your evening with a bang with our fireworks display!
