There will also be a mock jail for those who want to lock up a cowboy or cowgirl at the “Roundup Jail House” with Sheriff Ron.

Come buy a raffle ticket for a beautiful beach cruiser bicycle, a $250 Visa card donated by Gulliver’s Travel of Cottonwood or a gift basket of local items and gift certificates with a $350 value.

The silent auction items include four tickets and a parking pass to the Cheez-It Bowl college football game donated by the Fiesta Bowl charities of Tempe, tickets to Bearizona, Out of Africa and Blazin’ M Ranch, a kayak trip down the Verde River and many more amazing items.

Music will be provided by local musicians, LaToBo, from 5-7 p.m. At 8 p.m., the Verde Valley’s favorite country crooner, Jed Morrison, takes the stage until 11 p.m. Also, at 8 p.m., everyone is encouraged to participate in a flash mob dance to the hit country line dance song, “Git Up.”
