HOODSTOCK FACTS

  • Hoodstock is a fundraiser for Unified Community Connections
  • Hoodstock is meant to be the anti-black-tie charity event.  It is designed in the fashion of the late ’60s and early ’70s music festivals where all come casual, relaxed, and enjoy rock/folk music from multiple local and regional bands.  Hoodstock does not look or feel like the traditional gala and we think that is a good thing!
  • Hoodstock started in 2004 at Russ & Jen Causey’s and Larry & Gracie Musher’s Otterbein neighborHOOD backyard as a fun acoustic music party (no charity affiliation) with 30+ guests
  • 2005 was the first year Hoodstock served as a fundraiser for Unified Community Connections.  Still in the backyard with about 70 guests the event raised $1,200
  • In its third year Hoodstock moved to the Otterbein Swim Club to allow for more guests and better facilities.  Hoodstock was held at the neighborhood pool for the next 5 years with the last year having 187 guests and $20,300 raised
  • The next 3 years (2011-2013) Hoodstock was held at the B&O Railroad Museum with the last year’s event raising $65,000 with more than 350 guests.
  • Hoodstock moved in 2014 to the famous American Visionary Art Museum fondly known as AVAM where 360 attended and over $70,000 was raised
  • Last year’s event raised more than $82,000 with over 400 people in attendance
  • In the 14 years that Hoodstock has been a charity event for Unified Community Connections it has raised over $660,000
  • All musicians have performed for free and many have a direct connection to Unified Community Connections
