The Sagebrush Soirée returns with a Silver Jubilee dinner & celebration to recognize the Sawtooth Society’s 25th anniversary. 

The Soirée will be held at a private home in Iron Creek near Stanley, Idaho, on Thursday, August 4. The evening begins with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction, and live music at 6:00 p.m., followed by a sit-down dinner with wine pairings, entertainment, a live auction, and a rolling pledge to support the preservation and protection of the Sawtooth National Recreation Area.

The Sawtooth Society will also honor Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson with its inaugural Champion of the Sawtooths award. A member of the Idaho state legislature since 1984, Representative Simpson has played a pivotal role in securing the future of the SNRA through the protection of our wilderness areas and the conservation of wildlife.
Your presence at our annual Soiree underlines your commitment to preserving the Sawtooth National Recreation Area and ensures the Society’s continued success in stewardship of our incredible Idaho wilderness.

Established in 1997, the Society’s mission is to preserve, protect and enhance the SNRA. Over the years, this mission has been fulfilled through advocacy, strengthening the SNRA’s recreation facilities and services, and facilitating stewardship and volunteer programs in the SNRA. Your generosity generates 60 percent of the annual revenue for the Society.

In 2021, the auction at the Sagebrush Soirée was open for two weeks and concluded on Saturday, July 24 with a Livestream event. Over 100 bidders took part in our online auction, and we’re thrilled to say the event raised over $150,000. The success of the event was made possible through generous contributions from donors like you.

Event sponsorships are available. Please contact Executive Director Kathryn Grohusky at or 208.721.1495.
