Save the Date: 2019 A.L.E.R.T. Banquet

Saturday, April 27, 2019


In 1975 northwest Montana welcomed the second hospital-based air ambulance system in the United States that we call A.L.E.R.T. (Advanced Life-support Emergency Rescue Team). This program is based out of Kalispell Regional Medical Center, but operates in a state-wide and regional area to help patients in need of medical transport. The highly trained team of medical professionals in the A.L.E.R.T. program provide life-saving services on a daily basis, completing more than18,000 flights in the past 43 years and saving more than 1,700 lives of folks who would not have survived without rapid medical transport.

What's equally impressive to this unique medical service is the community support shown by local and out-of-state supporters of the program. A.L.E.R.T. supporters have been key to the program’s success − raising millions of dollars to cover shortfalls in reimbursement and purchase needed equipment. We are proud to announce our 2019 A.L.E.R.T. Banquet details and enthusiastically ask you to mark your calendars and buy your tickets. You won't want to miss it!  

The 41st annual A.L.E.R.T. Banquet
Saturday, April 27, 2019
Trade Center Building at the Flathead County Fairgrounds

This year’s theme is “New York, New York: A night on the town!” It's not too often that we get a chance to don our formal attire in Montana so this gives you a chance to pick out the perfect evening gown, dust off those bow ties and find some really uncomfortable fancy shoes to wear for the night. If fancy duds aren't your thing, that's okay, too. Feel free to wear "Montana formal" attire (boots and jeans are always in style here), just be sure to join us. 

Tickets are $300 per couple and includes a hosted cocktail hour for mingling, a delicious buffet dinner, live musical entertainment and the opportunity to bid on tens of thousands of dollars in auction items. Secure your tickets in advance (we might sell out) by contacting Lori Alsbury at (406) 752-1710 or via email at lalsbury@krmc.orgEarly Bird Tickets purchased by March 29, 2019, will be eligible to win a $1,500 cash prize.

Thank you in advance for supporting this vital service that keeps our friends and family safe. We deeply appreciate your support of the A.L.E.R.T. program and all the patients we are able to serve because of your invovlement. See you at the banquet!  

Stay tuned
