The second annual Fur Ball, benefitting the Animal Shelter of the Wood River Valley, is scheduled for Friday, September 30, 2011 at Whiskey Jacques in downtown Ketchum. Bands Up a Creek and The Heaters will have people dancing from 9 PM until the dogs howl! In the upstairs bar, DJ McClain will be spinning discs. Tickets are just $20 and all ticket proceeds benefit the shelter.
In addition to dancing, there will be a costume contest and a few raffles. Prizes in the costume contest will be awarded for those who best: Dress up like their cat’s attitude; dress up like their dog’s shenanigans; or dress up like your dog dressed up. And of course, with or without a costume, revelers are all welcome to come and support the shelter.
In anticipation of the event, community members are invited to submit their fun pet photos to be used on the poster. The winner of the photo contest will receive two complimentary tickets to the Fur Ball. The judges will be looking for photos of pets exuding a lively party attitude or a pet dressed up to party!
Photo contest submissions can be sent digitally to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name and phone number. Photo contest entries are due by May 15 and the winner will be announced in June. For more information, please contact Sheila Liermann at (208) 481-0450.
