Chuck Tooley speaks to an audience in 2009

Former mayor of Billings, Chuck Tooley, speaks to an audience in 2009 after viewing a series of shows titled Not in our Town. Tooley, the mayor of Billings in 1993 when hate crimes sparked community action, will receive the Jeanette Rankin Peace Award tonight.

The Institute for Peace Studies at Rocky Mountain College hosts their 12th Benefit Concert and Awards Ceremony at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 19, at the Alberta Bair Theater in downtown Billings.

Venture Theatre performers will sing numbers from famous musicals performed during the past years and the Wildwood Cloggers will usher in the Yuletide Season with dancing. Also during the event, Chuck Tooley will receive the Jeannette Rankin Peace Award for 2010 and regional high school and college students will be awarded cash prizes for peace essays.

Admission is $20 for adults and $10 for students through college. Proceeds support the Institute for Peace Studies programs, such as the Festival of Cultures, Women's Conference, Cultural Diversity Outreach into Classrooms, Bross Peace Seminar, Peace Village Day Camp and more.
