Museum on Main's 'Wild West Evening' at Senior Center at 6 p.m. today

Public invited to 7th annual Western fundraiser

Gamblers and bandits and wild women -- oh my!Step back in time at Mu seum on Main's seventh annual fundraiser, "A Wild West Evening: Brothels, Bar Rooms & Bandits," from 6-10 p.m. Saturday at the Pleasanton Senior Center.

The event features a return to Pleasanton of the 1890s when it was one of the most desperate towns in the West. Guests will rub shoulders with local characters from yesteryear such as Sen. George Hearst, Phoebe Hearst, John W. Kottinger, Leland Stanford and the ladies of the Women's Christian Temperance Union.

Tickets include a barbecue dinner and dessert, musical entertainment by Extended Roots, and chips for gaming tables, sponsored by the Pleasanton Lions Club. Additional chips and drink tickets for the no-host bar may be purchased at the event.

Live and silent auctions will feature themed baskets, sports memorabilia, getaways and more. Western attire is encouraged, but it's not the law.

Tickets, only available for those 21 and older, are $50 per person. Visit the museum at 603 Main St., or call 462-2766. Cash, credit cards, checks and gold nuggets are accepted.

This is a great fun way to support the Museum on Main. It's an important fund raiser for the Museum which provides lots of great programs through the year!!
