River Cities United Way is excited to announce that we are hosting our first ever Horseshoe Tournament and Family Fun Day on Saturday, July 29, 2017 at Centennial Park in Kingman. As well as a tournament for horseshoe enthusiasts there will be fun for the whole family!

Port-A-Party Express and Cosmic Bounce Houses will be providing free entertainment for kids of all ages. There will be bounce houses, games, face painting, balloon animals, live music, raffle prizes and a 50/50 raffle.

The horseshoe tournament will begin at 8 AM. The entry fee is $50 per team of two players. Teams must register online at http://www.rivercitiesunitedway.org/horseshoe-register or at the River Cities United Way office located at 2202 Hualapai Mountain Road, Suite 203 in Kingman. There will be no admission to the Family Fun Day as the event is FREE.

River Cities United Way recommends that you bring your EZ-Ups, chairs and plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated. There will not be food or beverage vendors at the event but the Centennial Park concession stand will be open for food and beverage purchases or you are welcome to bring your own. Alcohol will be permitted (no glass containers).

Proceeds will benefit River Cities United Way’s “Kingman Community Fund”. All money raised from this tournament will remain in Kingman to fund local programs serving those who need help most right here in the Kingman community.

“There are several other opportunities to support our charity event,” stated Dawn Darby, Kingman Area Manager for River Cities United Way. “We are looking for local businesses to sponsor our event which not only shows support for the community but is a great way to advertise your business at the event.”

There are other ways to support the event such as donation of raffle prizes or promotional items to be included in registration bags for the players.

River Cities United Way is a locally run 501c3 non-profit organization that advances the common good by creating opportunities for a better life for all within Mohave and La Paz Counties, Laughlin Nevada and Needles California.

Their focus is on education, financial stability and health–the building blocks for a good quality of life. United Way recruits people and organizations that bring the passion, expertise and resources needed to get things done.

River Cities United Way raises funds to invest in other nonprofit agencies within the service area. It provides no social services itself and keeps no money beyond what is required for administration.

Although our service area covers all of Mohave County the money that is raised in Kingman goes into the Kingman Community Fund and is used to help fund agencies and programs in Kingman.
