CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - A packed house, local donations, and two big sponsors could mean big things for downtown Cape Girardeau.
The Annual Charles L. Hutson Auction to benefit Old Town Cape is scheduled for tonight.
The event becomes even bigger, old town's director says, because of two big, new sponsors Southeast Missouri State and Isle of Capri.
Marla Mills says Isle of Capri getting involved now is a great sign of things to come.
“I think it sends a great message they are partnering now before the casino opens before they have any money coming in to that business,” said Mills. “So, I think it sends the message that they want to help improve the community and help downtown. They specifically came to us and asked us to partner with them on this concert and combining the auction with it.
