Help HATS help others by attending fundraiser

The stage and sound system are ready, the tables arranged, menu set and entertainers, headliner Gary Mule Deer and pre-event/dinner musicians Pat Erickson and Lilly Cruise, are on their way to Greybull for Saturday’s sixth annual Hands Across the Saddle benefit.

If you haven’t purchased a ticket, there are still some available for purchase at the door.

Chris and Robb of Lisa’s Restaurant will be preparing bacon wrapped pork loin as the entrée; strawberry sundaes will cap the meal.

A new donation for the live auction is a hand-crafted cribbage board that has to be seen to be believed. It joins an assortment of guns/rifles that include a .54 caliber black powder, BHC commemorative .22, and Wyoming Centennial .330; knife, Denver Broncos/Colorado Rockies ticket packages that include airfare; fire pit; 12’ x 14’ deck package; Alaskan cruise, four Shoofly prints; Ann Hanson’s newest limited edition; works by talented local artists Karyne Dunbar and Linda Jolley and a Lucy Stillson quilt.

There will be a variety of items available in the silent auction; new card games will include great prizes to the winners, as will as the traditional “Heads or Tails.”

Whether you purchase anything or not, just buying a ticket to the event will help HATS continue to serve those who need a helping hand. Since its inception the charity has helped over 300 people. Every dime realized from HATS goes directly to people facing unforeseen financial crises.

The doors at the Herb Asp Community Center will open at 3:30 p.m. Saturday.
