For over half a century, Montana Shriners have labored diligently to produce this most prestigious high school all-star football game each July to put Montana's high school best on display for the football public while at the same time raising money in support of Shriners Hospitals for Children.
This Year, be a Part of Montana's East-West Shrine Game
When we consider the cost to operate the 22 Shriners Hospitals (19 orthopedic and 3 burn institutes) will be over $726,000,000 in 2012, an amount which comes to more than 2 million per day, we can more than fully appreciate why Shriners continue to sponsor all-star football games, golf activities, and other events to raise money for this most worth of all causes - "The Greatest Philanthropy on Earth."  Be assured that your continued support of our hospitals and attendance at the game is genuinely appreciated by the Shriners, the players, and most especially, our "kids" in the hospitals!
The Montana Shrine Bowl is the oldest continuous single-state sponsored Shrine High School All-Star Game in North America.  It is played in support of Shriners Hospitals for Children, which are open to all children through the age of 18 regardless of race, creed or color. 
This game has raised over $1,000,000 for the Shrine Hospital in Spokane, Washington.
Over the past 65 years, nearly 3,300 of Montana's finest athletes have played in the game.  Some have gone on to star on college and a few have played in the Shrine College Senior All-Star East-West Classic in San Francisco, Palo Alto, Houston, Orland and Tampa - and pro ball as well.
