Just about everybody takes pleasure in being somebody else for a night.
At the Connect the Pieces 2013 Gala Friday, March 22, you can do just that. Guests are encouraged to don their most inventive Roaring '20s attire and join guest speaker Ada County Sheriff Gary Raney for an evening of live comedy, live jazz music and more to raise funds for the prevention of prescription drug abuse in Boise.
Though the attire will come straight from the 20th century, the theme for the night is The Roaring 2020s: A Vision for the Future, so come prepared to look forward while dressing from the past.
The party gets going at the Riverside Hotel in Garden City at 6:30 p.m., with live tomfoolery from Tom Willmorth and Joe Golden of The Fool Squad, tunes of the swing variety from Frim Fram Four, games, speechifying by Raney and an auction.
The benefit helps fund programs aimed at preventing prescription drug abuse among children. From 2000 to 2009, 1,244 Idahoans died of drug-related causes, and many of those deaths were the result of misuse or abuse of medications prescribed by a doctor.
But, hopefully, programs supported by Connect the Pieces can help cut that number down, and all you have to do is party it up at the gala.
