Local nonprofit organizations participating in "Idaho Gives" on Thursday are gearing up for what they hope will be unprecedented day of giving in Bingham County.
The statewide 24-hour fundraising blitz will begin at midnight on Thursday and will end at 11:59 p.m.
IONA â€” The Blackfoot Lady Broncos wrapped up the regular season High Country Conference Championship with a double header sweep of Bonneville on Tuesday evening. Braving the cold, wind and snow, the Blackfoot bats were unfazed as they pounded out 29 hits during the double dip winning 14-2 in game one and then 13-2 in the nightcap.
"It seems like the more games that we play the stronger these girls are getting," Blackfoot head coach Matt Chavez said. "I feel like we are peaking at just the right time."
