Tonight: Delightful Dishes and Dreamy Getaways Auction

Bid on mountain retreats, city escapes, spa treatments, a five-day stay in Hawaii, trips to Arizona or Beverly Hills, basketball shoes, a 2010 Road King Classic Touring Motorcycle from Harley Davidson and more while you munch on samples from twenty food stations at tonight's Delightful Dishes and Dreamy Getaways auction at the Brown Palace Hotel, 321 17th Street.

The event, which starts at 6 p.m., is hosted by the Colorado Hotel & Lodging Association, and proceeds will benefit the Food Bank of the Rockies and CH&LA Readiness Fund. Admission is $49 -- and that gets you a bidding paddle as well as the chance to visit twenty food-tasting stations manned by hotel restaurant chefs from around the state.
