SVSEF gears up for Fall Game Dinner

Nov. 12 at Limelight Room

The Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation officially kicks off the 2011-12 winter season on Saturday, Nov. 12 with its Fall Game Dinner and Auction.

A popular local celebration to raise funds for the Wood River Valley's youth ski and snowboard teams, the evening of tasty food, fun and fundraising also features an auction and dancing in the Limelight Room of Sun Valley Inn.

Tickets are $100 per person and sponsor tables are available for $1,500 (includes sponsorship recognition and 10 raffle tickets). Wine is included with dinner. Vegetarian meals are also available.

Seating is by reservation only. For information about the event, reservations, auction or donating, visit or email Katie Matteson at

Highlights of the event include the exciting live auction, silent auctions, the mystery balloon sales and the Sun Valley season ski or golf pass raffle (raffle tickets available now from any SVSEF athlete).

Once again, the SVSEF is including an online auction with prizes ranging from gift certificates and gear to adventures and nights out on the town. Bids start at $10 and the Auction opens on Nov. 1.

For over 40 years the SVSEF has provided young athletes with winter sport opportunities supervised by excellent coaches. More than 450 young athletes are normally involved in the alpine, cross country, freestyle and snowboard programs.

Besides offering recreational programs, the SVSEF is a significant economic contributor to the Ketchum/Sun Valley area. The SVSEF hosts about 10 national and regional competitions every winter, thus bringing people and dollars here.
