Aw$um Auction raises money for summer favorite with '80s hairband competition

Sponsored

Skin-tight Spandex, big hair and outrageous guitar solos were signatures of the 1980s hair bands like Def Leppard, Motley Crue and Twisted Sister (we refuse to talk about Poison or Warrant).

If you love that unique rock and roll era, get ready for a cloud of hairspray, er, trip down memory lane. The Coeur d'Alene Chamber of Commerce is holding the Aw$um Auction on Saturday, April 29 at the Coeur d'Alene Casino.

“The theme is '80s hair bands,” said Mary Riffe, a member of the chamber and chair of the auction. “It's going to be a lot of fun. You can dress in rocker style, but it's not mandatory.”

The five-hour event will feature dinner and a hair band competition — participants are allowed to play air guitar and lip sync. There also will be a silent auction and live auction throughout the evening.  

The proceeds from the Aw$um Auction will help fund popular summer events such as the Fourth of July parade and the Coeur d'Alene Ironman.

“Overall, supporting the Aw$um Auction is about supporting the local chamber, which in turn supports the local community,” said Riffe.

The Hair Band Competition is being sponsored by Idaho Central Credit Union.

Seating and hair spray-free oxygen are limited. Tickets cost $65 per person or $480 for a table of eight. Purchase tickets at www.CdaChamber.com/auction or call (208) 415-0110 or email brenda@cdachamber.com
