Thankful Thursdays with Cowboy Country
Every Thursday from February 6 to May 29, 2014, the Redwood Lounge and Package Liquor will be helping local charities by hosting "Thankful Thursday."
Events will have auctions, raffle ticket sales, and food/drink for purchase. Money raised from the evening will benefit the specific charities listed below.
The idea behind this is that we'll have 106 beer bottles (for 106.3, of course) up for grabs. Each bottle will have a number and a prize associated with it. When you walk in the door, we'll slap a wrist band with a number on you. If your number is called that night (we only call 10 each week!), then you'll get the prize in the associated bottle (No purchase necessary, but if you do purchase, proceeds will help benefit these charities!).
Three of the bottles have $500 in them.
Yep. $500 bucks!
