Foothills Caring Corps to host Taste of the Foothills Celebration and Cash & Caring Raffle
SCOTTSDALE – The Foothills Caring Corps will host its 12th Annual Taste of the Foothills Celebration and Cash & Caring Raffle on Thursday, March 31, 5-9 p.m., at el Pedregal, 34505 N. Scottsdale Road, in Scottsdale.
The Taste of the Foothills and Cash & Caring Raffle is the Foothills Caring Corps’ finale fundraiser in its 2015-2016 Annual Campaign. Currently, the non-profit has raised over $300,000, nearly halfway to its goal of $650,000. Admission to the event is $50 per person without a raffle ticket, or attendees can receive free admission for two adults, with the purchase of a Cash & Caring raffle ticket for $100. All proceeds benefit the volunteer-based nonprofit. Tickets are on sale now and will also be sold at the event.
The Taste of the Foothills Celebration and Cash & Caring Raffle continually supports the Caring Corps mission to promote elderly independence, and is a vital contributor to the nonprofit’s diverse selection of programs and services.
Over the past decade, the Taste of the Foothills Celebration has evolved into a benchmark nonprofit event. The evening festivities feature tastings from local restaurants, live and silent auctions, raffles, and live musical performances. The Cash & Caring benefit raffle offers over $9,000 in cash prize drawings. Three winners will receive cash prizes. Raffle tickets may be purchased for $100, three for $275, or eight for $500. Participants need not be present to win.
In 2014-2015, the organization’s 575 volunteers donated more than 42,000 hours to assist residents throughout Carefree, Cave Creek, North Scottsdale, North Phoenix and other areas within Maricopa County.
“Every year we are in awe of the community’s involvement at this fundraiser. Every admission and raffle ticket sold is a generous contribution to our elderly neighbors and future Caring Corps endeavors,” said Foothills Caring Corps Executive Director Debbra Determan.
