Age 21+ Only
On Saturday, October 21st, 60 ticket holders will gather at 5:30 PM for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres in the Historic Strater Hotel's Pullman Ballroom for a preview of the night's events. Guests will leave the Strater at 6:30 PM to rotate, in groups of 20, through three locations during the evening: the basement of the Hermosa Cafe, The Durango Winery/Subterrain, and the underground tunnel beneath El Rancho Tavern. At each location, guests will enjoy a signature cocktail and hors d'oeuvre as well as a haunted history of the location from a representative of Durango's very own Horsefly History Tours and a 5-minute story from a 9-R teacher who has benefitted from a Durango Education Foundation grant.
There will be a drawing for prizes at each stop. At the evening's end, guests will return for the announcement of silent auction winners, dessert, and our gratitude. Tickets for the event will be $150 each and will be released for sale on Tuesday, September 25th! Guests who purchase tickets on September 25th-26th will be entered into a drawing for two rooms at the Palmer Hotel that are reserved for the night of the event.
Many thanks to our sponsors who have made this event possible: The Historic Strater Hotel, Naomi Marty of Wells Fargo, Wells Fargo Advisors, Honeyville, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, El Rancho Tavern, The Hermosa Cafe, The Subterrain, and the Durango Winery.
