Get Formal with the Wyakin Warrior Guardian Ball


It's time to dig your Sunday best out of the closet—it's time for the third annual Wyakin Warrior Guardian Ball.

Wyakin Warrior is a nonprofit organization that provides "full-spectrum education and professional development for severely wounded, injured or ill post-9/11 veterans" through mentoring programs, professional development and networking, financial support and community service.

The program relies on fundraising throughout the year, but one of WW's biggest events is the Guardian Ball Saturday, Dec. 13, from 6-10 p.m. at the Boise Centre. That's where, for $75 per person (or $1,000 per table), you can dance the night away, participate in an auction, listen to big band music and sit in on the New Warrior Induction Ceremony.

This year's dinner menu includes petite beef medallions in a port wine reduction. For vegetarians, there's butternut squash ravioli with crimini mushrooms in an apple and brown butter sage sauce.
