TWIN FALLS, Idaho — A local band is promising a night of fun, food, and music coming up on Saturday--and all the proceeds are going to a good cause: a charity called Brittany's Hope.

The charity helps families with adoption costs, especially with special needs children. The charity has a unique program where families that have been helped can raise money for the next family in need.

The group, self-described as "four middle-aged dads, who are mediocre at best," say they're holding the concert in support of their drummer, Brian Hilverda, whose family is working through the adoption process with support from Brittany's Hope.

"As a band, we want to take an opportunity to raise funds for this great organization to help other families going through what the Hilverdas have done," the group said. "While attendance is free, we will be asking for donations at the event. Additionally, sales from food, drinks, and merchandise will go towards our goal of raising $5,000 for Brittany's Hope."

We are thrilled to announce that we will have ASL interpreters at the event. This will make the show more accessible for our friends in the deaf community. We can't thank our volunteers enough!

The group is asking folks to wear a mask around others and to maintain social distancing.

"RUNAMOK masks will be available for purchase if you want to look awesome, but any mask will do," the group said.
