MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Summer is right around the corner, and some children will spend the entire break without a bed to sleep on. That's why Ashley HomeStore and the University of Memphis are teaming up to host "A Hope To Dream" on Saturday at Liberty Bowl Stadium.

The event will give an entire bed set to 100 children.

Each bed set includes a twin mattress, sheets, and a comforter. In addition, BedGear donated 100 pillows to complete the set.

The event also includes a youth football camp run by University of Memphis football team, a pizza party, interactive selfie booth, and gift bags for each of the children. A schedule for the event is listed below.

10:30 a.m: Check in, followed by a welcome
11:00-12:00 p.m.: Football camp on the field
12:15 p.m.: Press conference giving away the beds
12:30 p.m.: Pizza party
1:00 p.m.:  Festivities wrap up

"A Hope to Dream" was started by Ashley HomeStore to provide children in the community with a bed. A portion of all mattress sells at Ashley HomeStore go toward supporting the "Hope to Dream" program.
