The Old Hotel is asking people to break out their denim and diamonds for this year's auction to benefit the organization.
The event, which serves as the main yearly fundraiser for The Old Hotel, will be Oct. 19 at Othello Evergreen Implement. Doors will open at 6 p.m. for the silent auction and social hour. There will be a buffet dinner, prepared by Kristy Rattray and Diana Brault, and the live auction will begin at 8 p.m.
There will plenty of local wines to go with dinner, as well as a pony keg for those who prefer beer, Sally Laufer, Old Hotel manager, said.
Booker Auctions will be running the live auction portion of the evening. Ernie and Chris Dorow will be the emcees. The Miss Rodeo Othello 2013 and Miss Rodeo Othello 2014 will help present the auction items.
Tickets are $20 a person, with a price of $18 for seniors. There is a $2 discount for those purchasing their tickets ahead of time. Tickets are available at The Old Hotel.
People in Othello love their blue jeans and cowboy boots, Laufer said. Some people also love dressing up. So she wanted to give people the opportunity to choose which one they want to do. Hence the denim and diamonds theme. You can wear denim, diamonds or pair the gems with blue jeans, she said.
"We want everyone to have fun," Laufer said. "If they want to wear formal attire, that's great. If they want to wear jeans, they can do that, too."
Some of the auction items include tickets to the Seahawks, including an overnight stay, restaurant coupons, sweetheart dinners prepared for a couple, free rounds of golf and more.
The money raised goes to help keep The Old Hotel open, Laufer said. It is the last remaining railroad-associated structure in town. Participating in the auction helps preserve a piece of Othello's history.
"Join us for a fun night out in Othello," Laufer said.
The Old Hotel is a nonprofit organization. They help local artists and craftspeople find a place to display and sell their wares, but it's hard to keep the lights on if there is no money coming in, Laufer said.
