Many community-minded businesses and people helped as event sponsors or donated raffle prizes. O’Dunken’s owner Beverly O’Conner donated her time as the official scorekeeper. A great time was had by all attendees — those who participated and those who simply came to support IVC.

The third annual Bowl Pong Tournament will take place in November 2018. Information: 208-733-6333 or
