SummerFest is the vision of three friends from Henderson. Jonathan Dixon, Brian Bishop and Greg "Moon" Mullins worked together a few years ago to establish the Henderson Wiffleball Classic.  They recently formed the Sons of Henderson non-profit, whose sole mission to establish local events that will benefit local charities and raise awareness of them. SummerFest is one such event and will benefit the following Henderson non-profits: Audubon Kids Zone, Healing Reins of Kentucky and The Chloe Randolph Organization.
