    Inside a fundraiser for the Spokane River with a famous set of initials.
      The draw, of course, is the broad sweep of the Spokane River on the afternoon it reaches flood stage. Thundering, it fills its channel to the brim with a winter’s worth of snowmelt and rain as it churns in white-capped glory towards the downtown waterfall.
