Here are a few of the great Raffle Items:
The Mile High Ferret Club celebrated Valentine’s Day with a huge party at the Lakeview Event Center. Over 30 ferrets attended our event and played in Cupid’s Den however we aren’t sure if there were any love connections. Members and guests had the opportunity to win gift cards with a couple of games of chance. There was Putt Putt Golf and Pick a Duckie. Winners then spun the wheel for another chance to win gift cards. Every, young and old, had a great time playing the games.
There were 2 Kissing Booths, one for the humans and one for the ferrets. Many of our guests had their pictures taken with their loved ones and their ferrets.
Everyone brought a dish to share for our potluck. The Chocolate Fountain was a huge hit, dipping fruit and cake in delicious chocolate.
Special thanks to the following:
Jim and Sherrie Escue for the Kissing Booth and for all the wonderful pictures. Check out the pictures below
Christine Davis and Tiffany Kellar for purchasing the games and for being such great Game Hosts.
To all our Weasel Wardens who kept the playpen clean and safe for all the ferrets.
Belinda Poirier, our Events Coordinator, for another fun-filled event.
Finally, thanks to all who helped set up and clean up. We’ll see everyone on March 19th.
On January 29th, the Mile High Ferret Club put on another fantastic event called the Western Ferret Stock Show and Raffle. Over 50 guests and 40 ferrets joined us for a fun-filled afternoon. The giant playpen was converted into a giant western corral complete with bales of hay, cowboy hats, snakes and money bags and a Teepee. The ferrets loved climbing around the bales of hay, enjoying the smells of the west.
Ferret Dreams Rescue had another great raffle to benefit the Medical Fund and raised $623.70 for our ferrets in need.
There was plenty of food to share including home-made chili, sandwiches, pizza, chicken, fruits and vegetables. For dessert, there were cupcakes with edible cowboy hats.
Special thanks to our Weasel Wardens who kept the peace inside the playpen. Special Shout out to Dawn and Brian for the Bales of Hay, Saddles and Lasso’s.
Finally, special thanks to Belinda Poirier, our Events Coordinator for another well planned event and Jim Escue, our guest photographer who captured the spirit of the event so well. See the pics below.
The Mile High Ferret Club is ready to kick off 2017 with a Boot Scootin Party. So dust off those Cowboy hats and boots and get ready for a Western Stock Show especially for ferrets plus another great raffle to benefit the Ferret Dreams Medical Fund.
Our giant playpen will be converted into a western rodeo extravaganza. We will also have a Western Jail Photo Booth for picture taking. The Sheriff will be in town to provide pictures of you and your ferrets in jail.
Speaking of Jail, if you have a ferret is aggressive with other ferrets, please do not bring to the event. Any bully ferrets will be confined to a Time Out Playpen or Carrier. Please do not stress your ferret or other ferrets. Same goes with any ferrets who aren’t feeling well. Please keep aggressive and/or sick ferrets at home.
Ferret Dreams has another great raffle with ferret themed prizes for you and your ferrets. The “Big Ticket” prize is a brand new Ferret Nation Habitat Model 182 Double Unit valued at $275.00. Tickets will be $5 each or 4 for $15.
As always, we will have a Potluck so bring something yummy to share. Finger Food, Chicken, Tacos, Chips/Dips, Potato Salad, Sandwiches, etc. are just a few suggestions. The Mile High Ferret Club will provide Drinks and Desserts.
