ROSEBURG, Ore. -- The Douglas County Shriners hosted a Donkey Basketball game at the fairgrounds on Saturday, and it was all to raise money for the Shriners Club that helps kids that need hospitilization, among many other projects that support kids.

The KPIC crew got in the act, playing a team of Roseburg firefighters.

The firefighters won the game 34-28, but the crowd, which included many families and lots of kids, had fun watching the donkeys do pretty much whatever they wanted.

It was all to help support the Shriners and their efforts to help children.

We don't have a total amount raised yet from the event, but we expect to have that soon. and we will pass that along when we find out.

All the players had a fun time, and KPIC and the Roseburg Fire Department were happy to help out such a good cause.
