The 75th Montana East West Shrine Football Game will be held Saturday, June 18, at Memorial Stadium in Great Falls. The game kicks off at 7 p.m., and the gates open at 5 p.m.

A parade through downtown Great Falls begins at 11 a.m.

Laurel’s Beau Dantic, Shel Osborne and Emmit Renner will represent the Laurel Locomotives on this year’s East football team.

Cheerleaders Jaida Christmann, Jade Elton, and Kayla Reynolds will represent Laurel, and Aaliyah Jennsen and Brook Ann Russell will represent Joliet as cheerleaders for the East Team.

The Montana Shrine Game is the premier all-star game in Montana and has a long history of distinguished players and coaches. It is also one of the oldest high school all-star football games in America.

Every year since 1947, Montana high schools’ finest players are selected to compete in a game to raise money and to help make the public aware of the expert orthopedic and burn care available at the Shriner’s Hospital for Children in Spokane, Washington. Expert care is provided regardless of the family’s ability to pay.

In recent years, the Montana game is the top Shrine Game in the nation for hospital donations. In the last ten years this game has raised nearly $1,000,000.

Forty of Montana’s finest are selected to compete on each team and two players from Canada will join them, one for the East and one for the West.
