Glide through the snow under a moonlit sky for a good cause. It's possible at The Expedition Inspiration Fund for Breast Cancer Research second annual moonlight snowshoe at 6 p.m., Sunday, Jan. 28.

Held at The Valley Club, the guided snowshoe will feature several routes for different ability levels, with breathtaking views of the area's enchanting moonlit skies.

Donated by The Elephant's Perch in Ketchum, there will be free snowshoe equipment available for use. Immediately following outdoor activities, hors d'oeuvres, specially selected wines and a sumptuous dinner will be served, courtesy of Beat Meier, a chef from Switzerland.

Entertainment will include Grammy nominee Jeff Crandall and, back by popular demand, the Wood River High School's Cola Voce Jazz Choir, who were gold medalists in the Heritage Music Festival, will perform. A very limited special selection of live auction items will be offered including an exotic condo in Cabo San Lucas, as well as a Gibson SG guitar decorated and autographed by tennis great Andre Agassi.

In addition, several enticing silent auction items will be offered such as pamper packages for both pets and people, limited edition art from renowned artists and rare vintage wines.

Proceeds from this event will go directly to Expedition Inspiration's 11th Annual Laura Evans Memorial Breast Cancer Symposium, to be held in Sun Valley in early March.

This is "recognized as one of the most sought-after symposiums to be invited to" by top research scientists studying breast cancer, said Dr. Julie Gralow, assistant professor at the University of Washington School of Medicine, and chair of Expedition Inspiration's medical advisory board.

Fundraising is also directed toward the awarding of research grants that have the most significance in the etiology, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of breast cancer
