Wylie & Erik to benefit kids ousted from homes
Wylie & his Wild West show, along with Wylie's brother Erik Fingers Ray have agreed to perform in Conrad to benefit kids who have been moved out of their home thru no fault of their own.
The program, officially called the "Front Range -Court appointed Special advocate," program uses volunteers to stand with and support these kids in the court system.
State Representative Rob Cook, a CASA board member says he was amazed when he first learned that such kids had absolutely nobody looking out for their best interests.
Cook told us that they have plenty of volunteers, but money becomes an issue because the volunteers cannot represent kids in their own community but they can represent in any of the other communities and that means alot of time and travel.
The Front Range section of CASA covers Teton, Pondera, Glacier & Toole Counties. Monetarily, Cook says "We at least want to provide these advocates with mileage.
The Wylie and Erik performance at the Orpheum Theatre will start at 7 pm Tues. night. Tickets are $15 for singles and $25 per couple.
