Search And Rescue Holds Annual Fundraiser
Kids were pulling ropes and climbing walls, getting a hands-on approach for what it's like to be a Search and Rescue team member.
It was the 23rd annual open house for Pennington County's Search and Rescue, where families could practice their own life saving skills.
This is a yearly fundraiser where the community can come check out the rescue equipment, like ropes and trucks, and even see some rescue demonstrations.
Organizers are expecting almost 500 people, and say it is a way for the community to see first hand where their donations go.
Richard Lehmann, team leader for the Search and Rescue, says, "Our goals and goal today are to just get the community members out to see what their money buys when they donate to us, and what we do for the community on a yearly basis."
Saturday's open house is hoping to raise anywhere from $15,000 to $20,000 that will last the entire year.
