By Beacon Staff

MISSOULA – Officials with a faith-based addiction recovery group say former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is coming to Missoula in September to fire up a fundraising campaign.

Teen Challenge Montana offers a residential program designed to help women give up drugs and alcohol to lead healthier lives.

Executive Director Jan Henderson says she met Palin during a book signing event in Billings, and asked her to speak in Missoula at a fundraiser for Teen Challenge.

Henderson says Palin agreed, and is slated to speak on Sept. 12 in Missoula. The group is selling tickets for the event for $100.
