Boondockers Films and KLIM Technical Riding Gear have teamed up to bring a unique fundraising event to Southeastern Idaho. With their Boondockers 8 Movie Premiere and Raffle Fundraiser benefitting Nathan Blaylock’s young family the two companies, along with dozens of power sports industry brands, look to generate maximum funds for Holly Blaylock and her children.
Nate was in a tragic fatal auto accident in August and left Holly and their 4 kids behind. Just a month before the accident, Nate and Holly had welcomed their first daughter and fourth child into the world. This fundraiser event will not only bring one of the most anticipated snowmobiling movie premieres to Idaho Falls, but 100% of all proceeds will go directly to Holly Blaylock.

Sadly, they proceed to tighten the recreational permit noose even tighter.
