If you have not been to the Cowboy Heritage Old West Collectors Auction sponsored by the Black Hills Stock Show Foundation, put it on your list for 2007! It is an amazing collection of western memorabilia that is unique and unusual!!! Almost 300 items were displayed and sold on February 4th at the Civic Center Theatre. Win Bauer and Jay George were able to gather together the items displayed on the website. Selling almost forty items an hour, the auction was a fast paced event. Over $8,000 was raised for the BHSS Foundation and the scholarship programs. The buyers and sellers went home happy!
