Last 2013 Cookout For A Cure

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The warm temperature Tuesday was a great backdrop for the final KULR-8 Cookout For A Cure in 2013.

"It's an amazing community atmosphere every Tuesday night! I don't know what we're gonna do next Tuesday night now!" said Cathy Cullen with the American Cancer Society.

The cookout, which happened every Tuesday at the Spoke Shop on Broadwater Avenue in Billings, concluded for the year on Tuesday. Cathy said the event, along with many other fundraisers across Billings, have made a big impact this year.

"We've got about $160,000 so far. The community's been wonderful, and we're about halfway to goal," said Cathy. She went on to say that thousands of people are taking part in the relay this year. Tami Folkerts is one of them.

"Been to a couple of garage sales. I've been making these ruffle scarves. I've sold a couple of hundred of them," said Tami. She said she is amazed with the community's involvement with the Relay.

"Billings is a great community. Very support of any cause that we need to raise money for," said Tami. She encouraged everyone to come out to the Relay, which is set to take place from July 12th to 13th, at West High School's track.

"Come out and have fun. It's a lot of fun. Just to meet up with people you see. Sometimes, we only see these people once a year," said Tami.

While KULR-8's Cookout For A Cure has wrapped up for the year, our fundraising efforts are not. On Saturday, KULR-8 will host our first ever yard sale for the Relay. The event will take place at 7 a.m., at our studio parking lot on 2045 Overland Avenue, which is next to the West End Fuddruckers.

Besides items for sale, there will be a raffle ticket sale for a chance to see The Eagles in concert in Chicago, as well as a drawing for a packet of six tickets to see the July 3rd Rodeo in Red Lodge.
