This inauguralcommunity-minded approach led to Backporch Productions receiving several worthyapplications from Abilene-based nonprofits organizations. The tough decision toselect Ben Richey Boys Ranch as the chosen benefactor was reached due to theirincreased need for direct operational support for the boys they serve, coupledwith their strong desire and plans to co-market the event over the state ofTexas. {{more}} Additionally,Backporch Productions announced March 22-23, 2013 as the date for the 3rdAnnual Outlaws & Legends Music Festival.
