  • 0

Sapphire Lutheran Homes is offering two free great evening events and they are doing fundraising activities that compliment the events and benefit the community.

The free concert, Aug. 8 has a fundraising barbecue that benefits the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the free showing of “As You Like It” by Montana Shakespeare in the Parks has a fundraising raffle to benefit The Daly Mansion.

“Our events are free and the fundraisers attached to them are going to good causes,” said Dominic Farrenkopf, Director of Community Life, Sapphire Lutheran Homes.

Country BBQ and Concert: LeGrande Harvey and The Spirit of Montana Band Country and Western Music will be featured the final free outdoor concert this Friday evening, Aug. 8, at Sapphire Lutheran Homes.

A fundraising barbecue starts in the evening at 5 p.m. and for $5 you get a burger or hot dog, beans, chips and a drink. The proceeds from the dinner benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation through Sapphire’s Maintenance Department head, Joe Kerr, as he participates in the Portland, Oregon Stair Climb Challenge.

Kerr is one of five Hamilton Volunteer firemen that will be participating in this event. They and other firefighters from across the nation will climb the 40 story U.S. Bancorp Tower in full firefighting gear.

At 7 p.m. the country and western music begins with toe-tapping tunes and fun times.

The evening is sponsored by Done Right Foundation, Empire Landscaping, Bitterroot Drug, Bitterroot Laundry and Cleaners, Evan’s Ace Hardware, Bruco, Massa, Super One, KLYQ, Turner Remodeling, Sweet Pea Sewer & Septic, Rooted Music and the Ravalli Republic.
