On February 10 at the Four Seasons Austin, 40 stars of Texas film and music will join The Nobelity Project’s Artists & Filmmakers Dinner to celebrate the DVD release of Building Hope – the Story of Mahiga Hope High School.

At the event, the Willie Nelson “Feed the Peace” Award will be presented to Kris Kristofferson in honor of his work in film, music and social justice. An all-star musical tribute to Kris will include performances by some of the greatest names in Texas music – Pat Green, The Flatlanders, Shawn Colvin, Bruce Robison, Kelly Willis, Ray Benson, Lukas Nelson, Carolyn Wonderland and the man himself – Kris Kristofferson.

The evening – and all proceeds from the movie and book Building Hope – benefit The Nobelity Project’s work for basic rights for children everywhere, including the Kenya Schools Fund, building water systems, classrooms and libraries across rural Kenya.

More information on the event and Building Hope are online at www.nobelity.org.

Audience Award winner at SXSW, Building Hope chronicles The Nobelity Project’s construction of the first high school for a remote African community. The film includes appearances by Kenyan youth counselor Auma Obama, sister of President Barack Obama, and by Cameron Sinclair, founder of Architecture for Humanity.
