The annual Wings benefit at the Yaak River Tavern and Mercantile raised over $36,000 this year, doing even better than last year, when they raised around $33,000.
In 1995, Wings Regional Cancer Support came together to help community members in Flathead and Lincoln Counties with the out-of-pocket expenses associated with cancer treatment.
But Wings Week isn’t quite over yet.
On Saturday, the Wings motorcycle poker run will start at the Switchback Bar and Grill in Libby. Registration is from 11 a.m. to noon. The approximately 100-mile round trip ends at Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1548 in Libby.
