Ride and Dine – Teton Valley’s Most Unique and Fun Fundraiser

November 19, 2015

Driggs, ID — Hop on the school bus on Thursday, December 3, for Teton Valley’s most unique and fun fundraiser, Ride and Dine. It’s a night of pure entertainment where all the proceeds benefit Teton Valley’s public schools.

Guests will hop on the school bus at 5:30 p.m. at one of the three bus stops across the valley — The Geotourism Center in Driggs, Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Drictor and West Side Yard in Victor.  From there the bus driver will take them to three stops…appetizers at Moose Creek Lodge, dinner at the Wildwood Room and dessert and dancing at the West Side Yard.

Restaurants, businesses and organizations throughout the valley have come together to make this a night to remember. Forage Bistro and Lounge will be serving their delicious appetizers at Moose Creek Lodge starting at 6:00 p.m. Purveyors of Wine will be hosting a tasting of three of their wines and Grand Teton Brewery is providing their locally made beer.  

Once the bell tolls, the riders will climb back aboard the bus and travel to the Wildwood Room where Chef Bill Boney will prepare a delectable menu that includes Beef Bourguignon wrapped in puff pastry and baked salmon filet with dill hollandaise and colorful red pepper confetti along with au gratin potatoes and Haricot Verte and roasted red peppers with candied pecans.

The Teton Valley Education Foundation Board of Directors and volunteers have put together an exciting array of unique experiences along with some of the valley’s most favorite packages that will be available for purchase through both silent and live auctions. The live auction packages include a barbecue dinner for 8 prepared by the Driggs Fire Department, a wine and ski package with Sego Skis, an airplane ride with Teton Aviation and a little red wagon of wine donated by a local women’s group.

Once the bell rings again, the guests will board the school buses and travel to the West Side Yard where they’ll enjoy their choice of two delicious desserts and dance to the music of Derek Hufsmith and The After Dinner Mints. A 50/50 raffle will be held throughout the evening and the winner of half the pot will be announced during dinner.

Tickets are $75 per person of $140 per couple and can be purchased through December 2 from Teton Valley News, the Victor Emporium or the Teton School District Office. Tickets are also available online at www.tetoneducation.com.
