Entitled “Tribute to First Responders,” the musical presentation that was organized by Audrey Mitchell will be in honor of service members and will serve to raise awareness for the Jerry Behrens Foundation, which supports wounded firefighters and members of the military and police as well as their families.  

A limited number of free tickets are available for fire, police and military members and their families. Those seeking to attend the event or learn more about the Jerry Behrens Foundation are encouraged to call (307) 265-7205.

The Jerry Behrens Foundation was established to support wounded and ill service members in honor of the lifelong achievements and commitment to community service that was demonstrated by co-founder of Casper Orthopedics Jerome A. Behrens, M.D. Casper Orthopedics funds the administrative cost of services so that all financial contributions to the foundation go directly to its beneficiaries.
