Pull out your dancing shoes and loosen your purse strings because CREHST museum's annual Spring Swing gala is Saturday.
The fundraiser in the ballroom of the Pasco Red Lion Hotel carries a Titanic theme, and organizers hope to recapture a bit of the glitz and glamour of cruise ships a century ago.
In keeping with the theme, period clothing, glamorous gowns and tuxedos are encouraged but not required.
The evening begins at 6:15 p.m. with a silent auction including almost 120 items donated by area businesses. The meal features two entrees -- top sirloin steak in a Bing cherry sauce and a pistachio-encrusted ahi tuna steak -- and decadent triple chocolate cake.
The University of Idaho's Lionel Hampton School of Music Jazz Band will keep the evening swinging.
Tickets are $70 per person, $60 for CREHST museum members. Buy them at the museum or go to www.crehst.org/ship/product-category/special-events/.
