Hope Haven of East Texas will host its third annual Showcase of the Stars at 7 p.m. Saturday.

The fundraiser will feature music by The Tuxedo Cats, Dustin Becker, Mary Dot Neal and Chance Peña

"It was begun a little over 3 years ago just by some folks in a local church," board chairman Paul Christman said. "They saw the need for ministry and responded."

The event helps fund various ministries, but the bulk of the funds will go toward completing Hope Haven's permanent residence for girls between the ages of 13 and 17 in foster care.

"We are almost there," Christman said. "We will have an announcement at the event on Saturday night."

Overall the nonprofit had set a goal of $1 million to complete the project.

Hope Haven provides ministries focusing on temporary shelter, horse therapy, career shadowing and college mentoring for young girls in need.

Tickets are $25.
