Hydroplane Double Feature (4pm and 7pm) @ Hayden Discount Cinema
Jun 5 all-day

Limited Tickets. Buy in advance! at the Museum of North Idaho or Hayden Cinema The special Hydro History Day fundraiser will feature the Hollywood feature “MADISON” and a special documentary short film “THE ROARING GIANTS.” The showings of the two films will take place at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. and will be preceded by an introduction of each film by members of the Hydromaniacs.

The 2005 feature film “MADISON” was directed by William Bindley and tells the story of a hydroplane driver Jim McCormick’s personal struggle to win the 1971 Gold Cup for unlimited hydroplanes with the community owned Miss Madison.

For the hydroplane fan, “MADISON” is notable because it contains authentic race footage from the 1971 Madison, Indiana race as well as action scenes of restored vintage hydroplanes currently in the collection of the Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum of Kent, Washington. “MADISON” is thought to be the only feature film ever made that is centered on professional boat racing.

The showing of “THE ROARING GIANTS” will be of particular interest to the residents of Coeur d’Alene, as it was filmed before and during the 1962 Diamond Cup unlimited hydroplane race on Lake Coeur d’Alene. The film short was independently produced and then stored away without explanation, never been shown to the public. Included in the footage are scenes of the big unlimited boats testing and racing on the lake as well as special concert footage from a performance by popular singer Jimmy Rodgers at North Idaho (Junior) College the weekend of the race.

The Museum of North Idaho will have copies of “THE ROARING GIANTS” for sale at the event, as well as a selection of the books including “Hydromania: A History of the Diamond Cup” written by local author Stephen Shepperd.

The newly reconstituted Coeur d’Alene Hydromaniacs hope to revive the fun-loving group that supported the Diamond Cup hydroplane races in the 1950s and 1960s. The organization also was involved in the Coeur d’Alene community, supporting local charities and civic events, activities that the new group hopes to renew as well.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the Museum of North Idaho, Hayden Discount Cinemas, Nickel’s Worth publishing office, Angel Gallery at 5th and Sherman, and Comfort Inn and Suites on Appleway.

CRIMES OF THE HEART (A Staged-Reading)
July 23 at 7:30 PM
The scene is Hazlehurst, Mississippi, where the three Magrath sisters have gathered to await news of the family patriarch, their grandfather, who is living out his last hours in the local hospital. In the end the play is the story of how its young characters escape the past to seize the future—but the telling is so true and touching and consistently hilarious that it will linger in the mind long after the curtain has descended.

The Fondo on the Palouse supports the Latah Trail Foundation. The Latah Trail Foundation (LTF) was founded in the spring of 1998, by a handful of people with a vision for safe, non-motorized transportation and recreation along the former Moscow-Arrow rail line.

With a mission to preserve the historic Moscow-Arrow railroad corridor for non-motorized recreational and transportation uses for Latah County, its residents and visitors, and to provide Latah County and its communities with support to provide this physical connection to their past and open an avenue for their future.

Proceeds from the Fondo on the Palouse will help support the Latah Trail Foundation and other local non-profits. https://www.latahtrailfoundation.org/

Local non-profits also benefit from the Fondo. Each non-profit that volunteers at an aid station earns a cash donation from the Fondo on the Palouse. Last year 9 non-profits each received over $300.00.

We are a unique shelter as we partner with local churches who host our guest families for a week at a time. The congregational volunteers who provide meals and a private space for each family are trained in the art of hospitality and confidentiality. In this way, the community of Kootenai County becomes part of the support system to those families experiencing homelessness.

7th Annual Red Dress Run @ The Crown and Thistle
Aug 24 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Our 7th Annual Red Dress Run Charity event will be an epic pub crawl. We are planning on rolling through downtown Coeur d Alene and are reaching out to at least 7 locations to see about drink specials and such.

in addition to our pub crawl members of CDAH3 will also be hosting two other events that you are all welcome to attend. On Thursday night we will be holding a dress exchange/rental party. There will be libations on hand but you may want to byod just in case. Then on Friday night we are all wearing camo to go watch an amazing band, LDW, in Spokane. Both events are posted on this page.

Our goal will be to donate 100% of all proceeds to our chosen charity and for that reason we are only asking for a 10 dollar donation to participate. Every dollar of your donation will be given back to the charity.

Since we are focusing on raising the most money this year, you will need to bring cash for pub stops. In addition to the pub stops we will have at least one beer stop and shot stop which will be paid for by the CDAH3. We will mostly be in downtown CDA but will also hit some shiggy and the lake to cool off on a hot August day.

No swag will be available this year as we try to maximize our donation. Again, every dollar taken in will be donated. As always, we will be glad to accept as much as you are willing to give and we will solicit donations as we wind our way through beautiful Coeur d Alene.

This year our local cause will be raising money for a local teenager that was very nearly killed in a vehicle vs pedestrian accident. Nicholas Eloe is a local hockey player known to many in the community. On July 21st Nick was going to pick up something he’s been dreaming of…his first ever fishing boat. Well, he got his dream come true, however on the way home he and his dad stopped along the road side because Nick saw some debris in the middle of the road.

While attempting to retrieve the debris, he was hit by a pickup truck doing over 50 miles an hour while his dad was in the pickup truck.
His dad performed much needed first-aid at the scene but life flight was called in to transport him over 40 miles to sacred heart hospital in Spokane.
