Annual Hoe-Down Fund-Raiser
On Sunday, September 30, 2012, Wild West Day will provide families in the Eagle Valley with a most remarkable opportunity – they can have a whole lot of fun and do a whole lot of good.
Eagle County School District’s nine elementary schools are the beneficiaries of this annual hoe-down fund-raiser, held at the 4 Eagle Ranch. This year’s fun marks the 22nd anniversary of Wild West Day, a fund-raiser that is the envy of PTAs statewide.
The event inspires the collaboration of this valley’s nine elementary schools. Knowing that families and businesses are hit hard and hit often with donation requests, Wild West Day was conceived to give area residents a request respite. By providing local residents with a one-time-catch-all option, Wild West Day has successfully tapped a wellspring of good will. Last year’s event tally topped 5000+ – an impressive figure for a one-day celebration. Wild West Day is made possible through the efforts and donations of countless area businesses and residents. Volunteers commit to many hours of work throughout the year and on the day of the event. Businesses graciously donate cash as well as gifts and services used for raffle prizes, the silent auction, and bingo.
The school children of the nine elementary schools help with the fund raising efforts by selling raffle tickets. The drawing for the great raffle prizes is held on the day of the event. You need not be present to win.
Year in and year out, Wild West Day provides the largest and most varied silent auction displays. With more than $100,000 worth of merchandise and services available for bid, the silent auction is always a huge crowd-pleaser. Hundreds of dinners, lodging packages, sports activities and services are available.
Entertainment is a key part of the Wild West Day fun. There is live stage entertainment, craft booths, carnival games, and wagon rides. There’s also ranch cooking for lunch and a bake sale.
