Potts auctioning off memorabilia, other items to benefit CSU fermentation program

On the heels of successfully auctioning off its iconic 15-foot shark, C.B. & Potts is now hosting an online auction to sell other items in its former West Elizabeth establishment — including some CSU memorabilia. unnamed

As was the case with the shark, all proceeds will benefit CSU’s Fermentation Science and Technology program. The auction runs through Monday, Oct. 24.

In addition to framed photos of CSU athletes and a neon Rams Coors Light sign, auction items include restaurant booths and other furniture, sports-themed art, TVs, commercial kitchen equipment, dishes, wall hangings and other furnishings.

The shark, a 250-pound former movie prop, was sold for $4,000 to Kiki and Drew Anderson, who then returned it to Potts so that it can be displayed in the restaurant’s new Foothills Mall location.
