Valentine’s Party – Ferrets, Chocolate, Games and Kissing Booth!

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.

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.
