Who couldn’t use a half-a-beef in their freezer or an extra $1,000 in their bank account? At the Roosevelt Memorial Healthcare Foundation’s 3rd annual Fall Fright Fest, these are just two of the raffle and auction items that can be won or purchased at the gala-styled fundraiser.

The engraved Beretta A400 XPLOR 12-Gauge shotgun is another item that pairs well with the hunting season ready to open in the next few weeks. If you’re a football or hockey fan, there’s a live auction item for you. How do six tickets to a Minnesota Wild game, immediately followed by a Minnesota Vikings game sound? The weekend sports package will also include $500 for hotel accommodations. The gun was donated by the Salvevold family and the game tickets by the Nelson family.

The silent auction will include some 20 items ranging from hanging pictures, jewelry and home décor. Local artists Casey Palmer donated an aerial photograph of the Missouri River and a Frontier Days-themed oil painting has been donated by Duane Larsen, a local artist.

This year’s black box bonanza will include seven grand prizes including $1,000 cash, over $400 in restaurant gifts cards, a two night stay at the Deadwood Gulch Casino in Deadwood SD, two season passes to the Fort Peck Theater for 2018, a family pool pass, a metal art piece and three-piece luggage set.

“We try to offer prizes that are appealing to everyone because we want everyone to attend and have a great experience,” said Jaimee Green, Marketing/Foundation director for Roosevelt Medical Center.

This year, half-of-a-beef was donated by Zane and Bonnie Panasuk, as well as processing by M3 Meats, of Sidney. Raffle tickets are $10.

The basket raffle includes over a dozen baskets to choose from with participants placing as many tickets as they want into the boxes to win the baskets of their choice.

Those who bring a bottle of wine and $10 will be included in the wine cellar raffle with one winner taking home all of the bottles collected that evening.

This year, everyone is encouraged to dress in black formal attire or tasteful costumes.

The doors open at 5:30 p.m. with a cocktail hour.

Attendees will enjoy an evening of hypnotism and magic by Jo Black of Black Magic Entertainment of Seattle, WA. Black has performed all over the U.S. and on the stage of America’s Got Talent.

Dinner will begin at 6:15 p.m. and include 14-hour smoked brisket prepared by Baby Got Back, Ribs, of Wolf Point, salad, side dishes and specialty cakes prepared by Jessica Schmitz, of Culbertson.

Tickets are $75 and are available in the lobby at RMC, or at First Community Bank in Culbertson. Tickets are also available at the door.

All of the proceeds will benefit phase two of the flooring project.
