Ullr Ball to benefit Antelope Butte @ Holiday Inn
Jan 27 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

SHERIDAN — The second annual Ullr Ball is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 27. The event benefits the Antelope Butte Foundation and will be held at the Holiday Inn — Sheridan Convention Center on Sugarland Drive. 

All proceeds of the event will help fund the initiatives of the foundation, including the project to restore and open the Antelope Butte Mountain Recreation Area in the Bighorn Mountains.  

“This event is a celebration of mountain recreation and Wyoming winters,” said Executive Director and Ski-EO Andrew Gast. “In 2016, with the help of the community, the Antelope Butte Foundation purchased the facilities at Antelope Butte and now we are looking to complete the restoration.” 

The event will feature silent auctions that include more than $25,0000 in travel packages, outdoor gear, art and tickets to sporting and theater events. More than 200 supporters of the Antelope Butte cause attended last year.

Renowned regional musicians The Wench will also perform at the Ullr Ball.  

“This is a festive evening with great music and fellowship, and like any mountain celebration it is not a formal event,” Gast said. “We are excited to bring the community together to celebrate in the spirit of Ullr.”  

Ullr is a Norse spirit that is hailed at ski areas as the patron deity of snow and skiing. The event encourages attendees to “Party Like a Norse god” and will include a costume contest and photo booth.

Tickets for the Ullr Ball are available at AntelopeButte.org in advance. Tickets cost $35 for individuals or are $60 for couples, and include heavy appetizers and two drinks per person. VIP Packages that include hotel stay, breakfast, and complimentary beverages are also available.

The Holiday Inn is located at 1809 Sugarland Drive.

Dueling Pianos featured at Saturday fundraiser @ Kalif Shrine
Jan 27 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

SHERIDAN — You name it, they play it.

That’s the basic premise behind a night of entertainment with the Dueling Duo, a lively musical act to be featured at Sheridan Rotary’s fundraiser Jan. 27.

Organizers suggest coming to the event with cash — requests accompanied by $5, $10 or $20 bills have a better chance of getting played, and the money is split between the performers and the fundraiser cause.

Event organizer Sasha Johnston said money raised at this year’s fundraiser — the third annual with the Dueling Duo — will support scholarships for local youth to attend Rotary Youth Leadership Awards leadership camps in 2017. Since 2017 is the 100-year anniversary for Rotary, funds will also support a special anniversary project.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m. Jan. 27 at the Kalif Shrine, 145 W. Loucks St. Tickets are $50 in advance, on sale now at Barney & Graham, LLC, located at 247 Coffeen Ave., and Sheridan County Title Insurance Agency, located at 23 S. Main St. 

The event will include a raffle, appetizers and cocktails. For more information, call Johnston at 672-6478 or email rotarysheridan@gmail.com.
