Earlier this morning on "The Big Show," we mentioned your chance to  say goodbye to the Colonel before he takes up permanent residence at Yakima Valley Museum.

"Cocktails with the Colonel" takes place tonight at the Season's Performance Hall beginning at 6:00 P.M.

Enjoy an evening of food, beverage (no-host bar), music, entertainment and fun as well as an opportunity to to get photographed with Yakima's oldest public monument, Colonel J.J. Weisenberger, before he moves!

There will be live and silent auctions with a myriad of great items up for bids, including:  concert tickets, autographed sports memorabilia, wine and tours from some of the valley's best and more!

Cost is just $10 with ALL proceeds going to the "Save Our Colonel" project to have the original statue moved and to replace it with a sturdier replication.
