Amazing Western Montana communities have come together to offer an outpouring support for the victims and families affected by the tragic events of March 14th. We've been keeping you up to date with ways to help the families, including their GoFundMe pages and the efforts by Garden of Read'n. Here's another way to gather with your community and help.

Twenty-eight-year-old Shelley Hays leaves behind a 5-year-old daughter, Cloey, and many, many friends and family members who all describe him as "one of a kind." They, along with generous local business owners, have organized a fund raiser to help with final expenses, bills and to contribute to a savings account for Cloey.

He was an amazing man who made friends with anyone and always brought life and laughter to any situation. He always helped anyone in need and was well known in our community. He was just an all around amazing man. This community has lost a great soul.

Join us this Tuesday, March 26th at Paradise Falls from 4 to 8 p.m. $5 will get you dinner, but you'll certainly want to check out the massive list of items up for grabs in the silent auction. Big ticket items include donations from Lowe's, Sportsman's Warehouse, Cabelas, Wrench Works, Big Sky Motor Sports, plus, concert tickets, vacation pacakges, golfing, fishing, horse back riding, tattoo certificates, pampering packages, art work, house cleaning packages (including windows, carpet, home and car) just to name a few! There is just way too much to list.

Plus raffles and special t-shirts with Shelley's favorite saying will be custom made and sold during the event.
