Seniors host special events this week

High school senior projects almost due

Express Staff Writer

    ’Tis the season to wrap up senior projects for Wood River High School students, and the latest projects include Fabulous Female Friday on Friday, Jan. 4, presented by Amelia Fugate, and a benefit for Flourish Foundation hosted by Dani Theobald on Saturday, Jan. 5.
    In mid-December, Fugate made a presentation to the Hailey City Council that resulted in a proclamation in celebration of the accomplishments of women, both young and old.
    “The Wood River Valley community is full of bright, intelligent young girls and women who deserve to be recognized for the accomplishments that they have achieved,” Fugate said.
    Residents interested in participating should attend local businesses for celebration specials. Participating businesses include DaVinci’s, Shorty’s Diner and Resilient Body Pilates.
    To receive the specials, participants should state that they are there to celebrate Fabulous Female Friday. Also, the Hailey Holiday Square bonfire will be lit for the event from 5-7 p.m. Refreshments will be served. For more details, contact Fugate at 721-7237 or by e-mail at
    Theobald spent last year serving with the Compassionate Young Leaders program, which is sponsored by Flourish Foundation, a local nonprofit organization with local and global programs. Through that volunteer work, she was able to spend part of last summer at the Jamyang School in Leh/Ladakh, India.
    “Compassionate Young Leaders taught me to participate in local community outreach and how it can translate on a global scale,” Theobald explained. “My intention is to raise money for these causes and also provide a forum of exposure for the artists featured at the event. I hope to spread a message of love and compassion to all I encounter throughout this endeavor.”
    There is still time to submit work for her fundraising art walk and silent auction, which will be held from 7-9 p.m. at the Ochi Gallery, 119 Lewis St. in Ketchum’s light industrial area.
    “I would like to represent all kinds of artful expression,” she said. “And I welcome any art donation.”
    For more information, contact or call 720-3989.
