The Lodge & Resort is excited to announce we are partnering with Montana Hope Project in our “Second Annual Pickle Ball Tournament” being held on September 17th and 18th, 2022. We cannot be more thrilled to partner with the Hope Project to support kids with life threatening illnesses. 100% of registration fees will go to this important and special endeavor.
The Montana Highway Patrol started the Montana Hope Project in 1984 as a way to give back to the communities they serve in a special way. Their mission is to fulfill the dreams and wishes of Montana children who are suffering from terminal or life threating illnesses. The most popular wish is to travel to Disney World which costs on average $8,800.
