A concert in Lead raises money for Rancher Relief Fund


The Historic Homestake Opera House provided the venue for an afternoon of cowboy music and poetry Sunday. 
Eight performers donated their time and talent to people who paid for $20 tickets or premium $50 tickets. Among the talent was Dave Stamey, a four time entertainer of the year.

Robert Dennis, another entertainer, says before the event started they had already collected $7,000 and tickets were still being sold. Money from a silent and live auction would add to that amount as well. 

Dennis says the decision to raise money for devastated ranchers was obvious. "To help my neighbors. I ranch and we were out where some of the hardest hit were, and there was a livestock loss by very good people, and we just thought 'well, this is a way we could donate money and raise some funds to go to rancher relief,'" said Dennis.
