Kearney Special Olympics to Hold Annual Dunk Tank Fundraiser


Kearney Special Olympics is holding their annual dunk tankfundraiser to support the organization.

"Drop 'Em Like They're Hot", as the event is being called, will be held Friday, July 19 from 3-7 p.m. at the Kearney Archway monument.

The event will offer the chance for participants to dunk officers with the Nebraska State Patrol, Webster County Sheriff's Office, Franklin Police Department, Kearney Volunteer Fire Department, Lincoln Fire and Rescue and Riverton Fire Department. Who will raise more money, the firefighters or the law enforcement officers?

Funds from this year's event are expected to go towards updating equipment and the upcoming Fall Classic being held in Lincoln next month.

Last year's $922 raised went towards purchasing new uniforms.
