Steampact Gala Benefits Boise Families in Need

Saturday, Oct. 11: Balihoo invites steampunks to raise funds for Family Advocates

by

Balihoo is a local high-tech software company specializing in marketing automation; Family Advocates is a local nonprofit providing assistance to families and children. The two organizations don't seem a natural fit, but neither do a post-apocalyptic future, the Wild West, the Industrial Revolution and the Victorian era, yet those are all elements of steampunk fiction and fashion, and all three combined--Balihoo, Family Advocates and steampunk--give us the second annual Steampact Gala. The event, hosted by Balihoo and benefiting Family Advocates, is a night of games, auctions, music and entertainment; as well as foodtrucks, drink specials and a steampunk costume contest--visit thesteampunkdistrict.com for ideas.

7 p.m. $25. Crooked Flats, 3705 Idaho Hwy. 16, Eagle, 208-258-6882.
