Jim Kern and the Brave Hearts Band have been playing together since 2010. The band plays various events around the valley and once a month Jim pastors a Cowboy Church in Emmett. Also monthly, on the first Friday, the band plays at Indian Creek Steakhouse which hosts “Veterans Night” and encourages our Vets to come out, have a little fun and support fellow Vets with donations. Brave Hearts plays at the Falcon Crest annual golf tournament which pays tribute to Silver Star Army Specialist John Borbonus who gave his life in Baghdad, Iraq serving his country. All donations from these events, are gratefully received and redirected to Veterans in need.
The ultimate mission of Brave Hearts is to “provide emergency funding for Idaho Veterans and their families who are experiencing critical need”. The Foundation has been blessed to help over 600 Veteran Idaho families to date.
