Buying wine in time for Halloween can help create special Christmas memories for children in need.
Part of the proceeds of the annual Harvest Moon & HalloWine Auction will benefit North Pole Adventures Spokane Fantasy Flight, which provides a holiday celebration for impoverished and at-risk children.
The charity organization offers a fantasy trip to the North Pole for 60 children ages 4 to 10 from area shelters and community programs.
The auction is hosted by the Inland NW Business Travel Association, a nonprofit group whose members represent major corporations, small businesses and travel suppliers.
The event takes place from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Oct. 25 at the Mirabeau Park Hotel & Convention Center, 1100 N. Sullivan Road in Spokane Valley.
Tickets cost $45 per person and can be purchased online at www.inbta.org.
