Sawtooth Society to host annual fundraiser

Celebrate the Sawtooths at the Sagebrush Soiree

Express Staff Writer

The Sawtooth Society will hold its annual fundraiser, the Sagebrush Soiree, at Pat and Janis Lee's Lost Creek Ranch on Saturday, July 26. This year's theme, "Celebrating Salmon," will celebrate the history and culture of salmon in the Sawtooth National Recreation Area.

The event, which is open to the public, is the organization's largest fundraiser of the year. The Sawtooth Society works to preserve the fish, wildlife, scenic and recreational values of the SNRA.

The Sagebrush Soiree will begin at 6 p.m., and will include cocktails, a sit-down dinner, live music and a raffle-auction. Seating is limited to 150 people and reservations are required to attend the event. Tickets cost $200 per person.

The purchase price includes the opportunity to win the raffle. The winner will pick from 10 prizes. They include a rafting on the Lochsa River, guided salmon viewing and natural history tour, lodging at the Hot Springs Ranch, a mountain goat field tour, backcountry trekking and yurt lodging, original salmon art, guided mining tour at the historic Bayhorse District and a guided tour of Railroad Ridge.

All items are donated.

Once the raffle winners select their prizes, the remaining items will be auctioned off to benefit the Sawtooth Society's work on behalf of the 756,000-acre SNRA, north of Ketchum.
