Poinsettia Sale

Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton Area has begun to take preorders for its annual Holiday Poinsettia Sale.

Monster-slaying onstage

Supermodel elves, warrior women and nasty ogres will take to the stage in Riot Act’s latest production, “She Kills Monsters,” by Qui Nguyen.

The show is Riot Act’s first full-length production of the grassroots troupe’s 18th season. It will run at 7 p.m. Nov. 6-8 and Nov. 13-15 at Dancers’ Workshop Studio 1 in the Center for the Arts.

The story follows Agnes Evans, who recruits a “dungeon master” named Chuck to help uncover the world of Dungeons and Dragons in her effort to learn more about her deceased sister, Tilly, who was a passionate online fantasy gamer.

A small live audience of up to 20 people, masked and socially distanced, will be admitted for each performance. Tickets can be purchased online at RiotActInc.org or at the door for $20 for adults and $15 for seniors and students. A livestream will be available to watch from home for $12.

HalloWine for Halloween

Raise a glass to Halloween at Habitat for Humanity’s eighth annual HalloWine event at Moe’s Original BBQ.

From 7 to 10 p.m. Saturday, participate in Halloween trivia, wine tasting, costume contests and a silent auction for adventures, gear and more. Activities, food and wine of all kinds are included for $20 at the door.

Prizes will be awarded for costumes in the categories of best in show, scariest, best couple, best group and best creative theme.

Guests are required to wear masks and to practice social distancing when not seated.

Poinsettias on their way

To welcome the holidays, Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton Area has begun its annual Holiday Poinsettia Sale to get homes into the spirit.

Preorders can be placed online at tfaforms.com/4765684 now through Nov. 22. Plants cost $16 each, with $12 of each sale going directly to Teton Habitat’s annual operating funds to support the building of affordable housing for Jackson Hole community members.

Plants will be available for pickup at the ReStore after Dec. 1.

Orders of 15 plants or more will qualify for free local delivery. Those wishing to order 40 plant or more should contact Jason Bruni directly at jason@tetonhabitat.org.

StokeX2? At the Spud!

What better way to combine Halloween festivities with October snow than a trick-or-treat drive-thru, snow-themed raffle and winter sport movie features?

The Teton Valley Ski Education Foundation will host the sweet drive-thru from 5 to 6:45 p.m. Friday at the Spud Drive-In Theatre in Driggs, Idaho, in place of its usual trunk-or-treat fundraiser.

At 6:45 p.m., raffle winners of a Grand Targhee Resort season pass, snowboard and swag bag will be announced. Individuals can buy raffle tickets by texting “Spud2020” to 855-202-2100 and need not be present to win.

“Blank Canvas,” a 30-minute snowboard feature film, will run at 7 p.m. followed by Teton Gravity Research’s “Make Believe,” which features Teton Valley Ski Education Foundation skier Kai Jones, at 7:45 p.m.

Adult entry tickets can be purchased for $15 and teens for $10 at TVSEF.org/spud-2020. Carpool tickets are available for $40.

Enjoy prime rib, virtual cards

The Rotary Club of Jackson Hole’s fifth annual Casino Night will be held virtually this year.

The benefit, which raises money for local student scholarships, will start at 7 p.m. Nov. 7, beginning with a free 30-minute live broadcast streamed through GiveSmart. Attendees can also purchase a prime rib dinner with sides and dessert for $50 to be picked up at The Wort Hotel, and a wine pull ticket for $25 with a chance to win bottles of up to $100 in value.

A silent auction will include trips to the Maldives, Bali and Napa, California, as well as an oriental rug, an original Amy Ringholz painting and jewelry. The auction opens Sunday, with bids accepted through 8 p.m. Nov. 7. Bidders must be registered for the event.

Buy tickets, view prizes, register for the auction, enter to win door prizes or just make a donation at E.GiveSmart.com/events/iQz, where you also can read more about the event and Rotary Club.
