Gary Bowne, the Bend man struck while riding his bike near Sisters High School last week, continues to improve at St. Charles. He is out of the intensive care unit and is in serious condition. Since Gary doesn't have health insurance, friends will be holding a fundraiser this weekend to help out his family. Entertainer Brad Tisdale is coordinating the event. “And so I, as a musician and colleague, decided to hold a fundraiser which will have a visual arts and silent auction component to try to raise funds for Gary, the family and his medical expenses.” The fundraiser will be Sunday starting at 6 p.m. at Sisters High School. Brad will be performing along with Gary's own band: The Pitt Stones.
