After tragedy struck her own family a few years back, one of our long time listeners started a local non-profit to advocate for children's mental health, and to help find solutions to our state's growing suicide rate among Montanans of all ages. Buckets of Love is fundraising to continue their important work in our state by raffling off the fly fishing trip.

The Grand Prize from TroutZoola Montana includes one night of lodging at Wolf Creek Anglers on Friday, May 21st and a fly fishing outfitted and guided trip for two on the Missouri River in Craig, Montana on Saturday, May 22nd. Runner Up prizes are a two-hour axe throwing at Lookout Throwing Company, a 'Furious' package at the Unhinged Rage Room, and swag bags. The drawings will be held mid-April, the winner must be at least 18-years-old with Montana fishing license, and you need not be present to win.

Raffle tickets are $25 each, or 5 tickets for $100, get yours here.
