When: 6:30 p.m. Saturday

Cost: $75 a person. For tickets, call Sheila Wright, development director for the Rocky Mountain Youth Corps, at 870-2135, ext. 4, or e-mail sheila@rockymount.... Twenty tickets remain available as of late Wednesday.

— Only 20 of 100 tickets are still available for the third annual Moonshine, Wine and Dine fundraiser that benefits the Rocky Mountain Youth Corps.

The event, scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Saturday, raises funds for the Youth Corps' Yampa Valley Science School.

Last year, the event raised $9,000 for the weeklong science camp held during the summer.

"This year, we're hoping to raise more than that, but in light of the economic times we'll be happy with the status quo," said Sheila Wright, development director for the RMYC.

The evening begins at 6:30 when guests are transported from either the Meadows parking lot or the Stock Bridge Transit Center to the red barn of Lyman Orton and Janice Izzi, two supporters of the science program.

From there, Wright said, guests will be invited to snowshoe or cross-country ski on the rolling terrain around the barn before returning to the barn for a dinner of prime rib or salmon.

"This isn't a black-tie event; this is a black-fleece event," Wright said.

Missed the Boat will play live music, and a silent auction will continue through dinner.

The Yampa Valley Science School, held at the Perry-Mansfield Performing Arts School and Camp each summer, hosts nearly 200 Routt County sixth-graders for a residential, weeklong program.
