Please join Cherokee's Association of Parents and Teachers on Saturday, April 13, 2019 for a fabulous evening to raise money for Cherokee Elementary.

Wander through the exclusive G Collection, home to Scott Gauthier's world class classic car collection, featuring some of the rarest cars in history. Be awed by a selection of Scott's handmade jewelry and be dazzled as you are personally matched to your perfect jewel tone by a Jewel Concierge. These are just a few of the many unique experiences awaiting you at "Cherokee's Cocktails and Cars" event.

Indulge your inner spy with a bourbon tasting provided by Beam Suntory and refine your tastes with 3 courses of amazing food from Creative Hands Cuisine. You can find out if you prefer your martinis shaken or stirred at our Open Bar, complete with beer from Huss Brewing, Sonoran Brewing, and Nando's Mexican Cafe. And wait until you taste our signature cocktail "The Coolant" provided by Tito's.

Kick your competitive side into high gear as our Silent and Live Auctions offer some of the best packages around. And take a spin on our Wheel of Fortune where, for $20 per spin, everyone wins a prize or is entered into a drawing for a fabulous trip.

But don't plan on going home early. Fellow Cherokee Parent Todd Hobgood will spin some music to keep the party going and there will be lots of surprises throughout the night.
