Top talent will appear at Showcase of Stars, an annual fundraiser for Hope Haven of East Texas, a home for girls in foster care.

The fundraiser is set from 3 to 7 p.m. on Nov. 19 at Love and War in Texas, the new restaurant and concert venue at The Cannery, in Lindale.

Earlier this year, Hope Haven broke ground on a 6,400-square-foot house near Lindale, that will provide a home for 16 teenage girls in foster care.

“We are so very close to seeing the doors open at the new Hope Haven long-term home for girls, ages 13 to 17, who have been abused or neglected,” said founder Lisa Ferguson in an update posted on Hope Haven’s website. “Construction is well underway in Lindale and should be completed by February 2017.”

Ferguson is describing Showcase of the Stars of as a “Texas-sized event” that will spotlight local talent and up-and-coming stars.

Showcase of Stars will also include a dinner, inspirational speakers and an auction.

Among those set to perform are: husband-and-wife duo The Magills, Macy Dot Neal, Chris Colston, Erin Kinsey and Zane Williams ‑‑ the Texas-based red dirt singer who is performing new songs from his latest album, “Bringin’ Country Back.”

VIP sponsors will have a chance to meet the performers during a reception and to tour Hope Haven’s new home for girls. Sponsorships are still available.

Tickets cost $50 and can be purchased on Hope Haven’s website,
