A star-studded, triple-header country music concert and a performance by the renowned Sam Houston High School mariachi band are center stage attractions for the upcoming Do Good Fest®, a benefit for youth mental health services set for Saturday, Sept. 23 at Levitt Arlington.

Hosted by National Life Group, the free event features legendary country music hit maker Mark Chesnutt with CMA-award winning singer-songwriter Jack Ingram, as well as up-and-coming country singer-songwriter Kaitlin Butts and the award-winning El Mariachi Tejano De Sam Houston.

The concert is free, but unlike most Levitt events, advance tickets are required for the Do Good Fest®. Reserve your tickets here. All concert guests are encouraged to make a donation to Parkland Health’s Pediatric Behavioral Health Program in support of youth mental health.

"We're delighted that National Life Group has once again chosen to host the Texas Do Good Fest at the Levitt, and we're proud to support Parkland Health's efforts to provide behavioral health services to underserved youth," said Letatia Teykl, the Levitt's executive director. "The Do Good Fest is a don't-miss concert for country music fans, who we hope will give generously when they reserve their ticket or when they're at the event. "
