Hometown Troops Fundraiser

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Since after the 9/11 attacks in 2001, Laurel Hometown Troops is an organization that has been sending care packages to soldiers tied to south central Montana.

According to Laurel Hometown Troops President Ranae Marshall, the non-profit will have its 3rd Annual Casino Night Fundraiser on Saturday at the Shrine Auditorium.

"It costs us between two and three thousand dollars for each shipment. That's just for the postage. In addition we have the items that go in the boxes that we sometimes have to supplement," says Marshall.

The fun starts at five and ends at eleven. It's $15 to get into Casino Night; you'll get a buffet dinner, and casino cash to spend on poker and bingo. The Billings Derby Dames will be on hand as well. Every single penny of the proceeds goes to packing summer themed gifts to soldiers abroad.
