Saturday night hundreds gathered in the Holiday Inn Convention Center in support of the 4th Annual Matthew Perkins Memorial Fundraiser. Matthew died in a tragic car accident over three years ago and Jane Perkins, Matt's mother, explains why the fundraiser.
It's all about helping kids go on a once-in-a-lifetime trip abroad. Before Matt died he traveled internationally with the Wyoming Ambassadors.
Three bands played throughout the evening which was also a celebration of Matt's life, who is missed by many.
Does the hurt ever go away?
Raffle tickets for a chance to win a Ipad2 were available as well as a silent auction featuring several fireworks displays. Over $5000 was raised last year at the annual memorial fundraiser.
