Bringing Business Home
Together, Montana Silversmiths and Special K Ranch are working together to “Bring Business Home”. Our goal is to help raise funds for Special K Ranch to build a new workshop, for light manufacturing. The event will be known as Champions for a Cause.
In August 2011, special events including Silent and Live Auctions, Youth Rodeo and other fun activities from Billings to Columbus were held to raise money for this cause.
About our 2011 Event “Bringing Business Home” –
Fundraiser for the Special K Ranch
Special K Ranch is located on 230 acres, 10 miles west of Park City and 8 miles East of Columbus, Montana. The ranch serves both men and women, ages 18 and older, who have cognitive disabilities. The program is designed to serve people who may need to permanently live within a supportive community.
With a new building especially designed for production work, Special K Ranch will be able to generate new economic opportunities, such as making Montana Silversmiths’ signature blue boxes, to complement their agriculture and horticulture businesses.
What happened next?
In 2012, thanks to community support from the 2011 events and beyond – we built the building and new jobs were created! Montana Silversmiths and Special K Ranch continue their business relationship. You can find out the latest news and updates on the Montana Silversmiths blog – The Silver Standard
