"We accepted the challenge because we felt that PFL was a leader in supporting BBBS Park County and wanted to inspire others to donate to a cause that enriched the lives of children and strengthened our community," says Charney Garnerman, BBBS of Park County Executive Director. "The money will be used to support the BBBS program in the Livingston community."
