For the past seven years, Aid for Friends has hosted a delightful fundraiser for the entire community enjoying the summertime pleasures at Pocatello’s Ross Park Aquatic Complex and sharing in a barbecue dinner with music and beach balls.

This year will be different for us.  We still want to continue some of the traditions of the past while complying with the new set of safety standards we are all living with daily.

An increased number of COVID-19 infections in Southeast Idaho has prompted Splish and Splash organizers to go to an alternate plan for the Aid For Friends summer fundraiser. There will be no public event; however, AFF staff will deliver picnic-style meals and swimming passes for the Ross Park Aquatic Complex to shelter clients currently being housed in COVID-safe housing.

To support this event and raise funds for the homeless shelter, Aid For Friends is seeking local businesses, community civic organizations, religious groups and private donors to support our unique fundraiser. The Idaho National Laboratory – Battelle Energy Alliance and Modern Woodmen of America have already joined as major sponsors along with other anonymous contributors. 

Aid For Friends is also holding a raffle (click here for more details) that includes a charcoal grill and accessories, three beautiful quilts and several baskets.  Raffle ticket sales begin July 15 and the drawing will be conducted via Facebook Live streaming at noon, Aug. 14, 2020.

Major sponsors for the event include the Idaho National Laboratory – Battelle Energy Alliance and Modern Woodmen of America and other anonymous contributors.
