Feast for the Beasts Saturday

Posted: Updated:
RED LODGE -

People can Feast for the Beasts this Saturday and raise money for the Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary's annual fundraiser.

Organizers say the event is the largest fundraiser for the red lodge organization every year. It features a live and silent auction and dinner. It is also an optional costume party with costume contests. All money raised from the event goes directly to the sanctuary. Feast for the Beasts helps it get through the winter season.

"So it helps bridge that gap in the winter until the summer season again," said Ellie Marion, Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary executive director. "When you're dealing with animals, it's a 24/7 operation. The animals don't care if there aren't any tourists. They still want to eat and have medical care."

Feast for the Beasts will be held at Rock Creek Resort on Saturday. The VIP event starts at 5 p.m. and the main event starts at 6 p.m. Tickets can be purchased by calling 406-446-1133 or e-mailing emily@yellowstonews.com.
