Buffalo Wild Wings & MacKenzie River Pizza are raising funds to equip police vehicles with Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs). Often times police officers are the first on scene when someone is experiencing a cardiac arrest. By having AEDs in all police vehicles, officers can deliver additional life-saving measures.

TIME:  Team check-in is at 10:00 a.m. Bags will fly at 11:00 a.m., come rain or shine so dress appropriately for Idaho weather.

LOCATION:  Snake River Landing, Pier View Drive (event tent area)

COST: $60 per two-person team. Deadline: June 8, 2019.  Register soon! SPACE LIMITED!

We will be using the American Cornhole Association Rules, but keep in mind this is a fundraiser so forgive us if the donated boards and bags vary in size. The Idaho Falls Cornhole Club has graciously volunteered some of their boards, as well as officials to assist with scoring. Winners will have an option of prizes to choose from, including breakfast with firefighters at Fire Station 1 Headquarters followed by a SWAT experience with the Idaho Falls Police SWAT team OR a prize from Guns & Gear (to be announced at a later date).  

FUNDRAISING: The more money we raise, the more devices we can purchase! Have your friends, family, neighbors and perfect strangers mention the tournament at Buffalo Wild Wings or MacKenzie River Pizza all day on June 22 and 10 percent of the food purchases will go toward the fundraiser (excludes alcohol).

ITEMS TO BRING:  Sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, lawn chairs (grassy spots available for spectator viewing) and appropriate attire for our lovely unpredictable weather.  We will have a raffle and/or silent auction (cash/check only). There will be beverages (alcoholic & non-alcoholic) available for purchase at the event. Please bring a designated driver or make alternate transportation accommodations if you plan on drinking. We want everyone to return home safely to their loved ones.  There will be food available for purchase at one of the fine restaurants sponsoring this event.
