Memorial Day “Salute our Troops” Event Recap!

The “Salute our Troops” Memorial Day Event held at the Backyards Inc, Riverdale location, was a great success and a whole lot of fun! Backyards Inc. donated 5% of their proceeds from that day to the Utah Military Families Foundation (UMFF). The grand total came to $1,640.60 for the UMFF, so thanks for all those who came out to support our local military! Backyards Inc. also kicked off a 10% military ID discount to continue at ALL six store locations!

 People of all ages came out to enjoy the event. There were free products, contests, prizes and even face painting and treasure digging for the kids! Frankie from 97.1 did a live remote broadcast in the afternoon, and we would like to thank 5 Buck Pizza for providing free pizza for the event.

Congratulations to Roger G. for winning the drawing for a Lifetime portable basketball hoop, and to Fred M. for winning the wheelbarrow weight guessing contest!!

Thanks to those of you who were able to make it out to the event! We hope it gave you the opportunity to get out and have some fun on Memorial Day and to show your support and appreciation for our local military!
