I'm sure many people in the Spokane Valley area have eaten at the Applebee's Restaurant at Mission and Pines at least once or twice. Part of the dining experience is gazing up at the walls at all the cool stuff hanging there - vintage signs, sports memorabilia, uniforms and more. And probably you've seen something you really liked and muttered about how you would like that hanging on your own wall. Well, now's your chance.
Columnist Doug Clark has a great story today about an auction coming up at Applebee's Thursday night that will see all that good stuff sold to raise money for a local charity that helps families in crisis. The bidding starts at 7 p.m. Thursday and is expected to go on for hours. There's no word on whether the bar will be open or not, but maybe if you've got the family checkbook it would be a good idea if it's not. Check out Doug's full story here.
