Council Circle rounds up prizes for spring party

Express Staff Writer

Helping to ensure the health of the community, the Council Circle Foundation is putting on a party to celebrate that mission this weekend.

The benefit takes place Saturday at the nexStage Theatre in Ketchum, with musical entertainment by the Sensational Toast Points, at 8 p.m.

Prizes, such as a seven-day stay at a vacation home in Mexico, a six-day stay at a condominium in Kauai, a four-day kayaking trip, Pilates instruction, dinners at local restaurants, massage therapy, and artworks will be raffled off during the eveningís silent auction.

"Itís a great opportunity to get out and dance and celebrate spring," said board member and treasurer, Marcia Grabow. "The Foundation has existed in the valley since 1995, and became non-profit two years ago. This is the first big fund-raiser."

Grabow pointed out that until now, the money to support CCFI has come from fees, some grant money and from private donors.

The Foundation works to create and sustain educationally and emotionally supportive programs for adults and youth, using circles.

A trained facilitator leads a circle while providing guidelines about issues such as listening without judgment, confidentiality and directing attention to various topics.

There are "big ah-has!" said Grabow, but itís more about regressing to tribal circles and understanding our interpersonal connections.

Glenn Janss, a supporter of CCFI, said that she believes its existence is essential to the spiritual health and emotional well being of this community.

"This public and celebratory event is a way for CCFI to make itself and its successful programs known to the community whilst raising the needed funds to continue our efforts," said Lea Flocchioni, who, with Jeanne Pudoff, is co-president of CCFI

Tickets are $15 and are available at Chapter One Bookstore and Iconoclast in Ketchum, Read All About It in Hailey, or at the door. For more information, call 788-2880.
