The beloved musician and storyteller Bill Harley is coming to Kalispell thanks to three very generous sponsors and the Kalispell Education Foundation.
Events and fundraisers
Over sixty non-profits in the upper Flathead Valley will be participating in the first annual Give Local campaign coming May 5th. This event/fundraiser offers the Kalispell community the opportunity to not only learn about the activities of non-profits but donate to those causes that speak to their heart. Donations to the Kalispell Education Foundation will be put toward Great Opportunities Grants and student scholarships.
KEF director Mike Kofford attended the Glacier High School Speech & Debate Five Guys fundraiser on March 7th to make a donation of $200 to the travel fund for the team. Several of the national qualifiers were present as a full house of supporters came out to show their support for the students. Coach Greg Adkins (photo) poses with students.
Another amazing group of performers and performances last night. Thank you to everyone who made a donation, bid on silent auction items, and attended the show. Again Kalispell proved we have some of the most talented students anywhere.
We’d like to take the opportunity to thank our sponsors once again (click the link below).
