Spring Fling

  • This event has passed.

First hosted by St. John’s Auxiliary in 1959, the Spring Fling Gala has become the hottest ticket in town—the perfect kickoff to the summer season. It’s a chance to reconnect with old friends before the summer rush, enjoy an elegant dinner with music and dancing, spend the night at Jackson Lake Lodge, enjoy the weekend at Grand Teton National Park—and most importantly, learn about the current health of our hospital and the impact that funds raised by the Auxiliary have made and will make for its future.

St. John’s Auxiliary is committed to the best cancer detection and care available.  This year funds raised at the Spring Fling Gala will support the St. John’s Medical Center and Huntsman Cancer Institute Affiliation.

To purchase tickets to the 58th Spring Fling Gala, please contact Rachel Merrell at or 307-739-7517.

Discounted room rates are offered at Jackson Lake Lodge for Spring Fling guests.  Please call 1.800.628.9988 to reserve a room.

Located approximately 50 river miles from the confluence of the Jefferson, the Silver Bow Club sits on the best stretch of river in terms of fish size and population. Our guests are encouraged to access the river by crossing the hay meadows and access the numerous pools, riffles and runs. Our golf cart path winds along a portion of the river for easy access to several of our favorite pools. Only during spring run-off is the river too high to wade comfortably. For those who prefer to float, the Big Hole River offers numerous boat launches. Just upstream from the Silver Bow Club is the Divide Bridge access. Here you’ll find an easy boat launch and picnic area. Downstream, is the Maiden Rock Fishing Access. Float the beautiful canyon for some of the best fly fishing the Big Hole River has to offer.
