The Palace Restaurant and Saloon is presenting "Paws in the Palace" benefiting United Animal Friends in honor of animal lover Bud Bassett. The dinner theater event, featuring Marshall Trimble, Arizona's state historian, is Thursday, Nov. 13, from 5 to 8:30 p.m., with the entertainment beginning at 7 p.m.
The cost of dinner and the program is $40, and the Palace is donating $20 of each ticket sale to UAF.
In addition, there will be a silent auction of high-end items that were donated by local businesses and individuals. All proceeds from the auction will benefit animals in need.
Trimble, who is Arizona's official state historian, will present a program of colorful stories, cowboy songs and humorous tales of the west. Trimble's biography proclaims him as "one of the state's most popular speakers and performers." He's also an educator, lecturer, folk singer and stage performer.
His biography goes on to say, "This multi-talented historian has been called the 'Will Rogers of Arizona.' He can deliver anything from a serious history lecture to a stage concert of Western folk music and stories with his guitar. Trimble appears frequently on radio and television as a goodwill ambassador for the state. For several years 'Trimble's Tales' were heard on radio stations around the state."
The Palace is located at 120 S. Montezuma St., on Whiskey Row in Prescott. Call 541-1996 for details and reservations.
