OPHIR SCHOOL COUNCIL

Pull out your flapper gear and gangster suits and get ready for a roaring good time.
The Ophir/Lone Peak High School Pie Auction, the school district’s largest fundraiser of the year, will take place Saturday, April 6 at Buck’s T-4.

This year’s theme is “Montana Prohibition and the roaring 20’s,” and the event kicks off at 6 p.m. with a silent auction and music from a live jazz trio. In keeping with the Prohibition theme, there will be sliders, pasties and pies baked by everyone from families to the finest pastry chefs around.

Buck’s will be transformed into a speakeasy for the evening, and you’ll need a secret password to get in, though admission is free. There will be a cash bar.

Live auction items up for bid include a $10,000 wedding photography package from Eye in the Sky Photography, VIP tickets to the Professional Bull Riders event in August, and four VIP box-seat tickets to a Seattle Seahawks game. Also up for grabs are movie tickets, restaurant gift certificates and delicacies from local bakeries and coffee shops.

Skiing enthusiasts can bid on alpine and Nordic gear, a pass to Lone Mountain Ranch, and wellness items including yoga classes, and massages.

Another highlight is the children’s art auction. Each year, Ophir and LPHS students create memorable works that hang in the hallways of lucky bidders.

Students are currently selling raffle tickets. Prizes include a summer date night with concert tickets; dinner and lodging at Big Sky Resort; a Hungry Moose gift card; a Visa debit card from American Bank and a gas card from Conoco.

Proceeds from the auction will go to Ophir and LPHS programs such as library enhancements, artist/author/musician visits, Expedition Yellowstone, a Washington D.C. trip, music programs, classroom supplements and graduation.
