Barbara Grinde, of Polson, wanted to have a fundraiser at the Finley Point Grill to benefit Montana Wounded Warriors.  She contacted former members of the Steve Miller Band and asked if they would be willing to play a benefit show.  They agreed, and with the help of Sean Perry, the manager of the Finley Point Grill, they put on an evening of good music, drink and food with silent auction items.  Barbara’s Dad is a veteran and Barbara felt that a fundraiser just before Veteran’s Day was appropriate.  Through her efforts, she was able to raise $850.00 for our organization.
