Tickets on Sale for 47th annual Wild Game Dinner

Tickets are now on sale for the 47th annual Wild Game Dinner, set to take place on Friday, Dec. 1 in the Limelight Room at Sun Valley Inn. The funds raised during the Wild Game Dinner directly support SVSEF’s mission to provide exceptional snowsport programs for the youth of the Wood River Valley, and specifically, the ability to grant more than $500,000 annually in financial aid to athletes across all ages and all programs.

“The Wild Game Dinner is a time-honored tradition for the ski club and for our community,” said SVSEF Executive Director, Scott McGrew. “It sets a unique stage for us to share stories of impact and inspiration and to raise critical funds towards our efforts to keep snowsports accessible and affordable.”

More than 300 friends, families, and community members gather each fall to reflect on the work being done for the youth of the Wood River Valley through SVSEF, to imagine the possibilities for the future, and to support SVSEF’s Athlete Financial Aid Program through the dinner and auction event.

“What we do is bigger than sport—we help build good humans and stewards of the mountains we play in,” said McGrew. “While it is our responsibility to support each and every SVSEF athlete to reach their unique athletic potential, and to develop strong personal character through good sportsmanship and strong values; we also honor the opportunity to inspire efforts by our coaches and athletes to protect the places we play, train, and compete.”

New in 2023, VIP tickets include live entertainment for the opening signature cocktail and hors d’oeuvres hour, along with a surprise takeaway for attendees to thank and remind them for all they do to help support the young athletes across the valley. The evening includes a short program, guest speaker, a silent and live auction, dinner, and dancing.

  • VIP Reserved Table for Eight = $2,800

Tickets and tables are available for purchase online at SVSEF Wild Game Dinner. Event details are available on the event site and auction packages will be updated in the coming months.
