Nine hours of music, a plethora of delicious food and fun for the whole family is slated for this year's HopeFest.

St. Thomas More High School's Class of 2017 is presenting the 10th annual HopeFest charity concert event on Saturday, April 9th from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Parc International.

This morning HopeFest spokesperson John Dupuis visited the KPEL studio to tell Rob and Bernie about the charity event that raises money for STM's Options Program.

Dupuis said the Options Program is designed to give special needs students an all-encompassing educational, social and spiritual school experience.

Live music will be provided by Royal Teeth, Lost Bayou Ramblers, Keith Frank, On Call, Hey Thanks, Charme, Strange Theories and more.

This year, HopeFest proceeds will be shared with Lafayette's Desormeaux Foundation.

A $15 ticket to the grants you admission to the entire nine-hour event with a spectacular line up of local musicians.
