IDAHO FALLS – Today, the Idaho Falls Auditorium District announced the Teton Auto Group has contributed $500,000 toward the construction of the Mountain America Center. In recognition of this contribution, the exterior plaza entering into the Mountain America Center will be named the Teton Auto Group Plaza.

Teton Auto Group has a history of being very involved in the communities in which they operate. “We see the value of this project and understand what it will mean for the communities that we serve,” said Teton Auto Group President Mario Hernandez.  

"Partnerships of private enterprise and government are absolutely necessary in order to make projects the size of this one a reality. We are so excited to welcome Teton Auto Group to our project partnership,” said Chairwoman of the Board, Terri Gadzik. “They have stepped up to the plate and have provided tremendous momentum as we continue to move this project forward.”

The Mountain America Center will be a facility for many different community uses. It will also house a new Idaho Falls minor league hockey team and will be available to host concerts, sporting events, professional conferences, and other community outreach events. The 48,000 square foot venue will feature an arena with seating up to 5,500 people and a state-of-the-art convention center with flexible configurations. 

“We are so thankful for the Teton Auto Group and the Hernandez family.  They understand how important this project is to the community and how it will aid businesses in recruitment and retention of employees while providing multiple entertainment opportunities,” said Rob Spear, Executive Director to the Idaho Falls Auditorium District.  “We are hopeful their support encourages other local businesses to get behind this project.”
