Austin Martin and TheHerd are raising money for terminally ill kids



Billings, Montana – The Make-A-Wish Foundation and country music group Austin Martin and The Herd are organizing a fundraiser to help underprivileged kids. Taking place at the Pub Station on Friday.

‘AustinMartin and The Herd’ aim to generate enough money through their shows to grant one wish before Christmas and forty wishes the following year, with the goal of helping to bring smiles back to youngsters who are suffering from life-threatening illnesses.

Since its founding in 1984, the South Dakota and Montana Make-A-Wish chapter has fulfilled over 2400 dreams.

Additionally, they granted 105 wishes to kids in both states last year thanks to donations from the community.

According to the nonprofit, each desire strengthens the emotional resilience of ill children and their families while bringing them joy.

“That’s the reason we picked make a wish, you know we think it really important to be role models and be able to help these kids any way we can, even if we are touring and we can dish a little bit on money to them, I mean that’s great….And being able to do what we love as our gift and give it back to them.” said Austin and drummer David Bedell.

The band tells us they consider themselves fortunate to be able to rock out and assist those in need simultaneously.

Austin Martin and the Herd play on Friday nights at the Pub Station. The performance begins at 8 p.m., with doors opening at 7 p.m. (Click here to learn more about tickets.)
