Cave Creek Museum to benefit from November spaghetti western fund-raiser
On Tuesday, November 8, 2022, the Cave Creek Museum will hold its eighth annual fund-raiser, “Spaghetti Western: Dinner with a side of history,” at Harold’s Corral from 4-7 PM.
According to Evelyn Johnson, Cave Creek Museum executive director, the fall fund-raiser is the museum’s most family friendly event.
“This year marks a rebranding of the organization’s previous named Spaghetti Dinner,” says Johnson. “We believe the new name highlights the special relationship and shared history between Cave Creek Museum and local landmark, Harold’s Corral.”
The November event also acts as a season opener for the 52-year-old museum. Its hours are seasonal, running October through May. The western themed dinner, which began in 2014, will feature exciting new elements for a successful outcome. During the evening, Harold’s will serve its home-style spaghetti, salad, garlic bread and ice tea. Guests can saddle up to the historic cash bar for adult beverages or other drinks of choice.
“In addition to the new name, musical tributes to the history and lore of the Cave Creek area, local trivia games, a well curated raffle and auction and western selfie stations for a fun evening,” says Johnson. “Our guests should expect some new surprises at this year’s function.”
The cost is $22 for adults before October 25 ($24 after), $10 for children 5-11 and free for children under five. Purchase tickets online at cavecreekmuseum.org or call 480.488.2764. Proceeds from the event will fund the museum’s extensive multiage generational education programming, academic research and engaging interpretive exhibits,
