If you can’t attend this fundraiser: Contributions can be sent to… American Legion Post 117, 3580 Granger Ave. West, Billings, MT 59102 Please write “For Bo” in the subject line.

American Legion Andrew Pearson Post 117 is asking the entire Billings community to join us for a benefit concert and BBQ for local service member, US Navy SEAL Bo Reichenbach.

Admission to the benefit concert is FREE and will be held Saturday, September 29th at Zoo Montana here in Billings. There will be a BBQ from 3:30 to 6:30 and live music by GT Hurley and special guests Zoller & Blattie from 4:30pm to 6:30pm.

The concert will be outdoors in the grassy area just inside the zoo gates by the office. Bring lawn chairs or a blanket to sit on. There is a play area for the children so bring the kids as well.
The BBQ will consist of pulled pork sandwiches, baked beans and chips provided by La Bella Lia catering and available at an affordable price. Soda, water and beer will be available for purchase. Special thanks to the La Bella Lia Catering and the Squire Lounge  for assisting with the event. All donations and all proceeds from the BBQ will go directly to Bo.

Bo was seriously wounded in Afghanistan in July of this year and is currently recovering from his injuries and going through physical therapy on the East coast. Bo is a twenty-four year old native of Billings who is married with a four year old son. His injuries were extensive and life changing and he can use all of the assistance we can muster for him. He has a long road to recovery ahead of him.

GT Hurley is a retired US Marine and singer/ song writer who released a new CD this month of original music called “Tough Horses”.  He has committed to donating a portion of his CD sales at this show to Bo. Zoller & Blattie are local musicians who write original music and play outlaw country and southern rock. Both acts are very talented and we thank them both for their participation and commitment to supporting our local wounded warriors.
