Mitchell Elementary's PTA hosts western-themed fundraiser

Posted

Golden is traditionally a western town.

That's why Mitchell Elementary School's PTA chose a western-themed event for its fundraising efforts.

“We wanted to do something that captures the spirit of Golden and its historical legacy,” said Samantha Monson, co-chair of the Western On Washington event.

Western On Washington: A Saloon Stroll is a fundraiser for Mitchell Elementary School's PTA and the proceeds will go towards the school's playground update project.

The event takes place from 6-11 p.m., April 12, along Washington Avenue in downtown Golden. It entails chuckwagon food and libations tastings during the stroll and a concert at the Buffalo Rose, 1119 Washington Ave., to cap off the evening.

The eight local venues participating in the stroll are the Buffalo Rose, Old Capitol Grill & Smokehouse, Miners Saloon, Ace Hi Tavern, Jolynn's Tavern, Barrels & Bottles Brewery, Colorado +49 Cidery & Pub and The Golden Hotel/Bridgewater Grill.

The concert performance will be by Wood Belly, the 2018 winner of the Telluride Bluegrass Band Contest.

The event is a 21+ event. Tickets cost $35 per person for the Cowboy package, which includes one food and drink sampling from each of the participating venues and concert admission. A VIP Sheriff ticket costs $75 per person and includes everything in the Cowboy package as well as balcony access for the concert and a complementary drink at the Buffalo Rose.

Attendees are encouraged to adorn western wear, but it's not required.

“Golden really knows how to have a good time,” said Tracy McKenna, co-chair for the event. Western On Washington “brings the community together in a unique way, and at the same time, you'll be making a difference for kids at Mitchell.”
