The festival benefits the following organizations:

Hackberry Athletics Organization, Hackberry Youth Organization, Hackberry FFA & Rodeo, Youth Rodeo Club, Hackberry FBLA, High School Dance, High School Cheerleaders, St. Peters Catholic Church, Catholic Youth Group, Catholic Daughters and Knights of Columbus.
