Photos, mineral specimens and works of art featured at "Follow the Fossil Trail" auction Feb. 25

The Tate Geological Museum in Casper is now selling tickets to its biennial fund-raiser to be held on Saturday, Feb. 25, at the Casper Petroleum Club.

The special guest of honor will be Paul Hallock, former Casper College Foundation executive director who retired in June 2011.

“Follow the Fossil Trail” will feature a number of beautiful items for bid including mineral specimens, photography, and works of art, which were created specially for the fundraiser and then finished by local artists. In addition, raffle tickets are being sold for a Henry Rifle Lever Action .22.

From 6 to 8 p.m. wine and “elaborate” hors d’ oeuvres will be served and a cash bar will also be available. A live auction, featuring Dan Sullivan as auctioneer, will begin at 8:10 p.m. Dancing to live music by Rob Staffig will begin at 8:30.

Tickets are $50 for individuals, $90 for couples, and $400 for a table of six, which will include sponsor recognition and a mineral specimen.

To purchase tickets, or for more information, contact Deanna Schaff, director of museums at 268-2077

All proceeds of the event will go to the Tate Geological Museum.
