STORY AND PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK

It’s billed as “a Funky Fashion Show for the Causes.”

And its mission is to bring together the valley’s nonprofits in one location so that people can learn about each of them while those in the nonprofit organizations learn about what other organizations are doing.

Tammy Davis, executive director of the Crisis Hotline, is putting on the event Monday, May 1, at the Limelight Hotel in Ketchum.

There will be a chance to shop for funky fashions from the Gold Mine, The Attic and Barkin’ from 4 to 5 p.m. Then the show will start at 6 p.m. Reserve your seat @ crisishotline.org/events or just show up at the Limelight. 

Representatives of each organization taking part will each have three minutes to give a spiel about what their organization is currently working on.

The idea is to celebrate the organizations that make the Wood River Valley healthy and vibrant and empower one another with knowledge, said Davis, who just finished organizing a grand opening for the new business park north of Shoshone.

“We want to share information and have fun. It’ll help us understand what each other is doing. We waste resources when we don’t know what one another is doing. No one organization can do it all alone. It takes all of us working together, and we can collaborate when we know what each other is doing. We serve better together.”

Davis said she also plans to honor Blaine County Commissioner Dick Fosbury, who recently passed away, at the event: “The county commissioners work hard to bring us together and we want to highlight what Dick did.”

DID YOU KNOW?

The Crisis Hotline is embarking on what it calls its Warrior Project. Funded with a $5,000 grant from the Limelight Ketchum Community Fund, it seeks to teach parents and community members about brain development in young people, how to recognize signs of depression and suicidal thoughts, and what to do when those signs are present.

“As our children learn these things in school and we direct them to reach out to their parents or other trusted adults, it is just as vital to share the same information with our parents and community so we can all learn how to truly listen, be present and support each other better when experiencing an emotional crisis,” said Davis. “This is in line with our organizational mission and my personal mission of working myself out of a job, knowing people would not need to call the 24-hour Hotline but that we’ve built a more resilient and healthy community, instead.”
