River Cities United Way is happy to report that our first ever Horseshoe Tournament & Family Fun Day was a huge success! Our event raised over $3,000 which will be distributed to our partner agencies in Kingman. Thank you to the Kingman Boy Scout Troop #66 which started the tournament with a flag ceremony.  Thank you to the 14 teams (28 individuals) who participated in the horseshoe tournament.
