"We still have a few tables open and we want to fill the event because it showcases the student-athletes. If you have ever thought about coming, this year would be a great time to check it out. I guarantee you will have a good time," Artamenko stated when asked of how the community can help support the Tetons. "It's a great way to get to know the students that put so much of their time and energy into this community. Many of our athletes find their way back to town after they complete their education."
