News From The Matthews

Oh the weather outside was frightful…

Santa had a way of getting these girls to reveal their Christmas wishes.
December 7 dawned with brilliant sunshine and below zero temperatures.  This particular Saturday was also Spearfish’s annual Christmas Stroll event.  Shops throughout town were open for shoppers, including The Matthews, and then the finale of an evening Christmas parade.  Due to the extreme bitter cold, the parade was canceled (and rescheduled for 12/14).  Fortunately, many of the businesses carried on.

It’s Official. The UN-FUNdraiser was a Blast!


Last Saturday, October 19, The Matthews put on a different kind of Fall fundraiser.  It was decided that instead of begging for money, we would instead celebrate our Friends.  In September, a new campaign began to promote becoming a Friend of The Matthews…and it started at $50!  Every sponsor, advertiser, and person who became our Friend was sent a formal invitation to our UN-FUNdraiser Friends Gala.

Once our Friends arrived, they were able to enjoy appetizers, cash bar, music, magic — the Amazing Nosmo, and parlor games. Two of the evening’s most popular guests were Mattie Opera and her boyfriend, Art Gallery.  They made sure all of our Friends were made to feel welcome and encouraged them to participate on the dance floor and the games.
