5th Freezin’ For A Reason For The Women and Families Shelters
Over the past weekend I took some time to evaluate the whole Freezin’ For a Reason promotion.The 5th Freezin’ For a Reason is coming up this week, February 4th-7th. The beneficiary will be the refurbishing of up to 3 of the Women and Families Shelters rooms at the Montana Rescue Mission.
To get the rooms up to date it will cost about $3,000 per room. That includes the labor, furniture, paint and other furnishings and bedding. My goal is to, with your help remodel 3 of the rooms through donations during Freezin’ For a Reason.
The thought process this past weekend was to at first postpone the event because of the week long sub zero temperatures that are in the Billings forecast. Wind chill temperatures are forecast for highs and overnight lows.
Postponing really is not an option so then I decided to not use the 10 x 10 shack and instead use the display model camper from Bretz R.V. and Marine to live in as Bretz is my title sponsor this year. As of this morning all the original details are back in place at the King Avenue West Stockman Bank parking lot.
I will use the shack with some insulation from The Home Depot in Billings to sleep and live in for the 3 days and 3 nights but I will be doing my radio show from the camper so as the radio gear does not freeze.
By the way we will have a raffle set up for you to win the use of the camper on display for up to 4 nights this Summer. It will be set up and torn down by Bretz R.V. and Marine and they hope to host a campfire cookout as part of the prize!
