PIONEERTOWN — The Gunfighters For Hire group opened their season last weekend with a wild west show and a check presentation of $500 to Happy Trails Children’s Foundation Director Joel “Dutch” Dortch. The foundation manages a 44-bed facility for abused boys.

Next Saturday’s show for the western reenactment group will once again be honored to have long time award-winning author, radio host, baseball player, award-winning film and television actor Michael Dante hangin‘ with the gunfighters at 2:30 p.m. Oct. 19 on Mane Street. Come and meet Michael Dante, and his lovely wife Mary Jane, in-person and say “howdy.”  He’ll have autographed books, DVDs and pictures available.

The Mane Street old west town is just behind Pappy and Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace.

Gunfighters for Hire is the only registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization performing on Mane Street helping to raise money for other needy organizations. The kind and generous donations from the public help the gunfighters to help others.
