(IDAHO FALLS, ID)  —  Today IS IDAHO GIVES:  This statewide giving day seeks to raise 500K for over 300 Idaho nonprofits.   Go to:, type in the name of your favorite nonprofit causes and make a donation online with your credit card.  Donations start at as little as $10. 

There will be a scoreboard showing how much money is going to various nonprofit groups and, to make things more interesting.  Additionally, there is prize money, e.g. the “golden ticket” which draws a donor name randomly.  If you are chosen an extra $1000 will go to the charity or group you donated to. 

There are a few parties being held around town: 

·       An open house noon to 7 pm at the old Rio Theater on Broadway hosted by the Arts Council, Symphony, Eastern Idaho Jazz Society, etc. 

·       Marcellar’s is hosting a public open house for The Nature Conservancy and Big Brothers/Big Sisters.
