'Silly Supper' for a serious cause


The third annual "Silly Supper" has been scheduled for Jan. 19 at Moffat County High School.

The supper, a fund-raiser benefiting Moffat County Partners, will run from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Partners' board members are selling tickets -- which also are available at the door -- costing $6 for adults and $4 for children 12 and under. Families of five or more are sold tickets at $25.

Shirley Balleck, an AmeriCorps volunteer who works with Partners, said the "silly" side of the supper can take many forms.

"We want to have fun and raise money," Balleck said.

Participants, for example, will choose four items -- identified only by numbers -- off a menu to eat but may or may not receive silverware or drinks when the meal arrives. Dinner quite possibly could arrive piecemeal.

The silliness is repeated every 15 minutes or so, according to Balleck.

Moffat County Partners is a non-profit group that pairs at-risk youth with adult mentors. The mentorship program brings both together an average of three hours per week over the course of one year, according to Partners.
