Check out what guests are saying about the Backpacker’s Ball:

“The occasion is always great and I know the staff works really hard to make sure everything is just perfect but this year was tops in my book. The new venue is absolutely beautiful. Having the barn as cover for the auction was really nice. The food was delicious. There were some great auction items and the live auction was super fun and interesting. The Auctioneer was really personable and fun and we loved the way he worked the crowd.”

– Shane Steger

“We thought the ball was a great event and we definitely had a large time. We also made new friends that we’ve since seen several times for dinner and a hike. We hope we are able to make the ball every year!”

– Lesley and Cliff Dales

“Good band, the food and drink were great and the auction was amazing. By far the best quantity and quality of fun and unique goods, services and experiences we’ve ever seen at a charity auction – there was truly something for everybody. Personally, we discovered a new Montana artist (TeshiaArt) and were thrilled to win one of her prints in the silent auction. We had a blast contributing in the live auction as well and couldn’t have asked for a nicer evening under the stars. We can’t wait to attend our next Backpackers Ball this summer.”

– Tim & Kerry Mushkin

“A wonderful evening with a fun group of people who share our love for Glacier Park!”

– Vicki Reich

“Cheers to a special gathering on a glorious summer evening, in a beautiful setting for the Jewel of the Continent! Fun Beverage is proud to be a sponsor the Backpackers ball.”

– Brian Clark

“We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend The Backpackers Ball as a really fun date night. Beautiful venue with informative park displays, opportunities for one-on-one ranger talks, and we even got to meet Gracie the Bark Ranger!”
