WOW Missoula! Big thanks to all of you who stopped by our Crown Royal Tail'gator' at yesterday's Griz game to contribute to KYSSmas For Kids! We only promoted it for 2 days, so honestly, we really only expected a few people to stop by and maybe collect around $20 to $50. You all came through with a whopping $467.76 donation to enable 10 more children to be able to receive toys this Christmas. We were so thrilled as we counted the total, thank you for your generosity.

Long time Blaze listener Smitty put the whole thing together and purchased the alligator online. Massive thanks to Smitty, Matt Knutsen and Chunk & Danielle Bledsoe for donating their time and skills. And we couldn't have done it without Jackie Goren, owner of the Full Moon Saloon in Stevi, and the great and powerful Tom Hoffman of Crown Royal. It was a helluva party and the alligator was delicious! KC eloquently described it as "like pulled pork and pulled chicken had a baby, it's f**kin' GOOD!"

I think this will definitely become an annual event! And it certainly didn't hurt that the weather was beautiful and the Griz won a record breaking game over ISU, 62-44!!
