BUTTE -- The Board of Directors of the Montana East-West Shrine Football Game has approved the donation of $146,000 to the Shriners Hospital for Children in Spokane, Wash.

The 67th annual Shrine Game was played at Naranche Stadium in Butte in July. The West team beat the East 31-28.

“This is a new record donation to the hospital for the Montana East-West Shrine Game,” said board president R.J. Olson. “Since the game began rotating between Butte, Billings, and Great Falls five years ago, the Montana Shrine Game has donated more than $350,000 to the Shriners Hospital for Children in Spokane.”

This year’s donation from the Montana Shrine Game is also one of the largest in the nation to date.

“We are extremely proud of the donation that will be sent to the Hospital this year,” said Butte board member Ryan Jonart. "To be recognized as one of the top Shrine Games in the country is a huge accomplishment. This is a direct result of the support of our sponsors -- they really stepped up and showed the support that Butte, the surrounding area, and the state of Montana is capable of. We're excited to present this donation to the hospital.”
