Bear Backers fundraiser twice the fun

Peter Hernet, left, and Keith Allen of Blazin' Pianos performed for the Blair Bear Backers Kickoff Event at Cottonwood Cove Marina & RV Resort, Blair, on Friday. The players donated all of their tips — more than $500 — to the Bear Backers, said Bob Schoby, president of the Backers board. More than 200 tickets were sold, which was more than expected, and the raffles were popular. "People have been very generous," Schoby said. The Backers are a new nonprofit organization formed to fundraise for activities needs at Blair High School.
