Fund Raisers

The Feather River Band has been setting up and orchestrating  fund raisers for people in need since 1994. Tornado, fire, cancer and so on.....  In 1994 at Blue Ridge School in Northern Arizona five teaches in the same year came down with cancer.  The Feather River Band set up a Spaghetti  dinner, entertained a packed house of towns people, had static displays from the Fire Department, Police Department, hot air balloon rides, auction etc.   Round trip fair to the Bahamas was also given away, and much more.  Cowboy raised over $10,000.00 in three hours for the cancer victims in a very small town and paid for some of the hospital and medical bills and other bills the families incurred. 

Since then the Feather River Band has done numerous successful events over the years that have helped cancer patients, burn victims, flood and fire victims, accident victims and many more.  The band tries to help when it can.  The band has helped with fund raisers every year since 1994 and is now approaching 110 fundraisers which has helped people in need.

Spirit Lake, Iowa - Dec 19th, 2014

 

 

On Sunday December 7th, 2014 in Spirit Lake, Iowa in the early afternoon hours a fire started and burned down a whole apartment complex. One 40 year old male and numerous animals perished in the fire.  Approximately a dozen families or more were left homeless and lost everything they owned.  The Red Cross has set them up with shelter.  It is not only tragic, but just before Christmas.  Let's all come together and give them a night to remember, let them forget their troubles for awhile and have a good time with people around them who really care.

    A Fundraiser dinner and dance will be held at the VFW Post 4514, 918 Lake St., in Spirit Lake  from 4:00 pm until 9:00 pm.  A Spaghetti dinner will be served from 5:00 pm till 7:00 pm.  There will also be an auction of various items, 50-50 Drawing, lots of Give-A-Ways and more.  The Fundraiser will be MC'd by Cowboy of the Feather River Band, and entertainment will also be furnished by the FEATHER RIVER BAND, from Yankton, South Dakota starting at 4:00pm.  All proceeds and funds raised will be deposited into an account set up at the Central Bank in Spirit Lake and 100% of the funds raised will go to the families in need.  You may donate at the VFW Post 4514, or send deposits to the Central Bank.  For more information call Brenda at:  (712) 331-4516.
