Pumpkin Paint & Bake Sale - South Dakota (2014)
The Iott family held their 7th annual Pumpkin Paint and Bake Sale on October 18 at the Flandreau Aquatic Center. Pumpkins were donated by Iotts Greenhouse, whose owners are the grandparents of Rylee who is affected with ARCI-CIE. Participants painted pumpkins and enjoyed sweet goods. Friends and family members donated the baked goods for sale. The event raised more than $1,800 for FIRST and much fun was had by all.
In addition to their annual Pumpkin Paint, the Iotts also hosted their annual coed softball tournament, held at the Flandreau City Park. Teams entered the tournament for an entry fee and played softball throughout the day. After the tournament, close friends of the family grilled pork ribs, chicken, bratwurst, and potluck. A free-will donation bucket was placed at the serving line. All totaled, the Iotts and their family and friends raised almost $1,800 for the Foundation.
Many thanks for the Iott family for their continued dedication and hard work on behalf of FIRST.
