ROCHESTER, Minn. - For many, it's a difficult topic to discuss.

"We just want to give a voice to that organization because it's a hard topic to talk about but the amazing work that they do is really deserving of every cent that people are going to bring to this cause." 

Oliver Books is helping organize Foster Fest which will donate every penny made to Mission 21. Mission 21 aims to provide resources for victims of sex trafficking. 

Last year, Foster Fest raised $6,000 that they were able to donate and this year they are hoping to double that amount. 

Books says if they are able to raise $12,000 he will cut his hair on stage in front of the crowd. 

Foster Fest will have live bands all day, activites for the kids, and of course swimming and food.
