It was dress up time in Sheridan Saturday night as two formal balls were held...Habitat for Humanity of the Eastern Bighorns held their “Fire and Ice Ball” and the “Fireman's Ball” was held across town. Sheridan Media's Judy Hagerott stopped in on the festivities and brings us this story.
I'm no Cinderella and I certainly won't lose a slipper in this winter weather, but two grand events were held in town Saturday night and I stopped to take a peek.
First stop, the Kalif Shrine Center where Habitat for Humanity held their formal ball called “Fire and Ice.” Executive Director for Humanity, Matt Davis says they wanted to do something a little different this year.
Great food served by the cast and crew of Sheridan High School's theater program followed by live entertainment by the Craft Brothers, Davis says the night had its focus on fundraising for their building program.
The attendance was tremendous, a far cry from last year.
Habitat is all about building healthy, safe, affordable housing for low income families. There's no better feeling for Davis.
Next stop, the historic Sheridan Inn for the seventh annual “Fireman's Ball, another fundraising event. Fire Captain Greg Luhman says they incorporated a raffle this year to benefit local youth.
The event is a great way for the firemen to dress up in their Class A uniforms which are usually reserved for funerals.
It also gets the firemen in touch with the community.
