KALISPELL — A large crowd is expected to gather Monday evening in Kalispell to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The Crown of the Continent Choir and Flathead High School students will remember Dr. King through song and featured speakers.

The event is free to the public with volunteers accepting donations for the Flathead Warming Center which offers low barrier safe shelter access to those in need. Crown of the Continent Choir founding member Lucy Smith says giving back to the community is the perfect way to honor Dr. King.

“Taking care of and treating our fellow man with as much compassion as we would have, so the Flathead Warming Center being one of those kinds of organizations that’s really looking to taking care of our brothers and our sisters," Smith said. "It’s just a perfect fit for us.”

The event gets underway at 7 p.m. at the Gateway Community Center off of US Highway 2.
