For the past eight years Tubin’ in Tutus, an annual fundraiser benefiting North Idaho’s Shoshone Pet Rescue, has taken place on the slopes of Silver Mountain. This year the event turns tropical when the tubes ditch the slopes for the Silver Rapids Indoor Waterpark. Tickets include all-day access to the resort waterpark, but the main event happens during the evening at Noah’s Loft. Up for live auction are 10 handmade wooden serving trays, crafted by local wood artist Roger Baker. Local artists have added their own touch to the trays, so no piece is the same. The main goal of the annual fundraiser is not only to support the local nonprofit rescue’s services, such as spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations, vet care and microchips, but also to build a new animal shelter. Shoshone Pet Rescue currently cares for all stray animals brought in by local agencies to the Kellogg animal impound facility, ensuring they are comfortable, fed, exercised and loved until the all-volunteer group can find them an adoptive home. Of course, don’t forget to wear a tutu, tiara and feather boa to this fun event.
