Senior Center Fundraises

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Yellowstone County Commissioner Bill Kennedy and Councilman Jim Ronquillo put on their aprons Sunday at the South Park Senior Center for a good cause.

Breakfast fundraisers are put on about two times a year to raise money for the center's maintenance. The building is 26 years old and serves several seniors in the community. Ronquillo says it's a place to grab lunch, and an office for those who don't have access to a computer.

"We got to keep someplace for the seniors enjoy coming, and we've got a clean and safe environment for them. So, it just takes a short funding now and then to keep the building up to code so it doesn't deteriorate on us too far," says Ronquillo.

Past fundraising efforts have allowed for a new floor, kitchen appliances, and a paved parking lot. Organizers hope to raise $2,000 at this event for a new carpet and paint.
