BOZEMAN — I-Ho's Korean Grill held a fundraiser Sunday for the Human Resources Development Council’s Blueprint Program in Bozeman.

The HRDC opened a home for teenagers experiencing homelessness back in 2015, and on Sunday, Bozeman City Commissioner I-Ho Pomeroy donated 100% of her restaurant's earrings to the program.

Customers could also make a donation to HRDC's Blueprint program at the restaurant.

This is the second fundraiser I-Ho’s Korean Grill has put on for the the teen homelessness program.

"It means a lot to our organization. And trying to combat homelessness in specifically youth. So it just shows the generosity that is the Gallatin Community and I feel really humbled to be part of it," said Jeremy Alcoke, youth developement coordinator at the HRDC.

Blueprint serves teens ages 16-20 years old and has helped 16 youth since they opened.

They will celebrate their 5 year annivarsary on Thursday. You can learn more about HRDC'S celebration at their website: https://thehrdc.org/events/
