5th Annual Freezin' for a Reason Fundraiser

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Tuesday night marks the start of the 5th annual Freezin' for a Reason Fundraiser. News Talks' Livin' Large Larry will be staying inside of a 10-by-10 foot shed in the Stockman Bank parking lot on King Avenue.

He won't be there for one or two nights, but for three nights in some of the coldest temperatures we'll see this winter.

This year, Larry hopes to raise enough money to refurbish three of the rooms at The Montana Rescue Mission's Women and Families Shelter. He hopes to raise at least $9,000 in cash donations, and he believes Billings residents will be able to come through like they have in the past.

Larry says if you don't have the money, there are still ways you can help the cause.

"It's not just the cash that we're looking for. When we refurbish these rooms, it's gonna be us doing the labor. Me and a team that steps up during this three day promotion for Freezin' for a Reason. Stop by if you're a laborer, if you know some construction, join my team. That's labor, you put value on ten volunteers that show up for a weekend to refurbish three rooms," said Larry.

If you're interested in donating or helping, you can visit Larry in his shed at the Stockman Bank on King Avenue, or visit any of the Stockman Banks to drop off a donation.

    Much of northwest Wyoming is a high desert, but most people don’t use rain barrels to conserve water. Cody’s Nature Conservancy wants to change that, with a rain barrel auction at its second annual Wild West Riverfest in Cody.

    Can you imagine building a hotel by stacking one floor on top of another? That’s what’s happening in Yellowstone. The Park’s lodging concessionaire, Xanterra, tore out hundreds of old cabins in Canyon Village, and started construction this summer on five new lodges to replace them. The new lodges are actually modular jigsaw puzzles.
