*We Love Our Buckaroos Virtual Concert
Concert Donations Can Be Made Here
Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, we were not able to hold our annual BBQ fundraiser. ALL of our fundraisers have been changed, canceled, or put off until the fall. HOWEVER, we needed funds to help pay the children’s therapy bills for the upcoming months. We did not have enough money to meet the therapy scholarship demand until that time. In lieu of the BBQ plates, we had an amazing virtual concert LIVE on our Facebook page!
Music by Jesse “Outlaw” Howard and Nick Wood of Fat Lip
Including parent testimonies, slideshow of therapy sessions, and interview with owner Kristye Chastang
