SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - With the Summit League Basketball Tournament beginning this Friday in Sioux Falls, the excitement is already building as the city prepares to host teams. Local organizations are helping pack the stands with some very special fans.

The Summit League tournament brings in fans from all backgrounds. Sponsors of the tournament are giving back to the community by giving tickets to hundreds of students and members of the South Dakota Air National Guard.

South Dakota Corn has been a sponsor of the Summit League tournament since 2014. Through that sponsorship, they were able to make 400 tickets available to members of the South Dakota Air National Guard to use throughout the tournament.

“This is the least we can do to show our appreciation for what the military, the National Guard have done to protect us on a daily basis in this state and around the world for that matter,” said Chad Blindauer, president of the South Dakota Corn Utilization Council. “They’re out there in harm’s way every day, so this is just a small token of appreciation to show them that we appreciate what they do for us.”
