Benefit for injured cowboy to be at Hamley's Slickfork Saloon


PENDLETON -- Hamley's Slickfork Saloon, 8 S.E. Court St., hosts a "Roundup of Talent" at 7 p.m. Saturday to raise funds to assist Emmett Evans, 30, with medical bills.

On Jan. 17, Evans was seriously injured at a calf roping event in Walla Walla.

He has had several surgeries on his leg and faces a long recovery.

Eight different acts are on tap, each scheduled to perform two to three numbers.

There will be a $10 entrance fee at the door -- half will go to Evans' benefit fund and half to cover Hamley's expenses. Evans' family will host a silent auction at the event.

An account has been established for Evans at Banner Bank for donations.

For more information, call Pat Beard, 509-386-4347.
