RETAIL & OFFICE SPACE FOR LEASE
This fundraising event allows the opportunity for teams of friends, family, co-workers & individuals to gather at the Indian Creek Plaza for the evening. Participants fund raise in the months leading up to the event to raise money and awareness to help the American Cancer Society save lives. We come together to celebrate with our cancer survivors at the opening and to remember the ones we have lost in a special Luminaria event at 11pm.

There will be Food Trucks, vendors, Disney Princess, Star Wars Storm Troopers, Big Purple Chair, The National Guard's Climbing wall and so many other activities for the whole family.

The sooner you get started, the more money you can raise. The more money you raise, the more incentive prizes you earn.

We believe that every individual regardless of the nature or degree of their abilities, race, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, etc. should direct his or her own life and we’re here to help put that independence within reach. We offer tools, advocacy and support so people can live the life of their own design, whatever that design may be. Our approach is built on trust, truth, transparency, and an unwavering belief that independent living and personal choice are civil rights worth fighting for.

HAT RANCH WINERY
-2019 Idaho Winery of the Year!-
Hat Ranch Winery and Vineyard/ Vale Wine Company
 
Hat Ranch History:

Founded in 2011, the Harless family is proud to take the HAT Ranch name from their great-grandparents, who created the HAT Ranch homestead as a farm and ranch in 1902. Inspired by their pioneering ancestors who set out to make a new life in the Great Northwest, they have followed suit by choosing Idaho as their winemaking homestead, the great new frontier of the wine industry.


In 2014, Hat Ranch founders Tim and Helen took over production of Vale Wine Company. Today, Vale wines are committed to quality, traditional varieties, complementing the Hat Ranch brand of artisan blends, lesser-known wine varieties, and small lot wines. Both labels continue to seek the best grapes grown in the Snake River Valley region of Idaho.
