I have seen and been apart of a lot of cool things since I have been on the radio, and many of those things have come as part of the fundraiser, Lures 4 Laney, I am holding on July 15th. John Elway, Taylor Swift, and Jason Aldean autographs are all awesome, but to me this is the neatest thing I have got to hold in my hand. I have a pair of tickets to the first annual "8 Seconds To Glory" cast reunion dinner on July 21st in Cheyenne.

"8 Seconds to Glory" is a dinner, and live entertainment to benefit Western Wishes which honors and strives to lift the spirits of children and young adults faced with adversity who live and love the western way of life. Highlighting these incredible kids and making them special guests at rodeos, horse shows and country music concerts is their objective. It is the mission of Western Wishes to reward the fighting spirit of courageous kids and share their compelling stories.

The event will feature Christian Contemporary Artist Rhonda Gunn, Christian Performer Susie McEntire (Reba's sister), 2011 American Idol Finalist John Wayne Schulz, and RFD-TV host Susie Dobbs; as well as wish story presentations by Actor/Director Luke Perry, who portrayed the late World Champion Bull Rider Lane Frost in the movie "8 Seconds", and Actor Stephen Baldwin, who portrayed World Champion Bull Rider Tuff Hedeman. Guests will enjoy a private screening of a musical tribute to both past and present Western Wishes Recipients, enjoying their wishes with rodeo stars and country music legends. "8 Seconds To Glory" will be emceed by Great American Country Commentator Justin McKee. Then, there will be an audience-interactive Q&A session on the movie "8 Seconds".

I have said it before, "8 Seconds" is my favorite movie of all time, so to have the opportunity to hang out with Luke Perry and the real "8 Seconds" characters, Clyde and Elsie Frost, Tuff Hedeman, and Kelly Frost-Macy. Lane Frost's legacy lives on through the great cowboys and country music artists who have brightened the lives of Western Wishes kids since 1994.

More info and tickets for "8 Seconds to Glory" are available here.
