     The Wild West is the theme for the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation’s 37th annual Wild Game Dinner on Saturday, Nov. 15 in the Limelight Room of the Sun Valley Inn.

     Community members are invited to saddle up with their finest buckles, baubles and boots for an evening of conviviality and fundraising.

     There will be live and silent auctions, signature cocktails from American Revolution, wine from Pietra Santa, plus heavy appetizers and a reimagined dinner menu by John Murcko, Sun Valley Resort’s executive chef and director of food and beverage.

     Providing the live music will be Artie Hemphill and the Iron Horse Band from of Salt Lake City, Utah.

     Funds raised benefit the 500-plus SVSEF athletes on its alpine, cross country, snowboarding, freestyle-freeskiing and big mountain teams.

     The event harkens back to the early years in the organization’s 49-year history as a way for ski team families to gather and share game they personally harvested.

     “The Game Dinner is a gem of an event,” said Jody Zarkos, SVSEF director of communications and events. “The feeling of camaraderie, seeing old friends and celebrating the upcoming season is an integral part of our community fabric. Our roots in the Game Dinner run deep.”

     The evening starts with a cocktail reception, silent and featured silent auctions from 5:30-7 p.m. The dinner and live auction is at 7 p.m. followed by music and dancing at 9 p.m.

     Tickets are $125 per person before Oct. 31 and $150 in November. Tables of eight, 10, and 16 are available for seating. Table sponsorships are offered. Make your reservations by Nov. 12.
