Wine flows and spirits are lifted as the gardens come alive at Watters Garden Center for Prescott Frontier Rotary’s 14th benefit. On June 30, from 5 to 7 p.m., the garden center transforms into “A Garden Party,” with all proceeds going directly to Rotary causes and the Prescott Unified School District’s 21st Century Grant Summer Program. Grapes-4-Grades received an outpouring of support in 2018 raising more than $53,000, with high hopes to exceed that total this year. Top auction items are trips to Austria and Italy. See the Watters Garden Center Pinterest Board of past Grapes-4-Grades events.
The event features a gorgeous night of wine and song, with the Steve Annibale Jazz trio, 12 different wines and artisan beers available for tasting. Delicious hors d’oeuvre catered by El Gato Azul, live auction, and cash drawing, all in the lush, vibrant setting of northern Arizona’s most beautiful garden center. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased at Watters Garden Center, Prescott True Value and Olsen’s Grain.
The 21st Century Grant Summer Program elevates kindergarten-through-fourth-grade students on academic classes in science, computer, gardening, even yoga, so students continue to do their best. All students are eligible for this summer program starting at breakfast and ending the day with lunch. Last year, more than 200 students honed their academic skills!
Wines are poured with photo opportunities that overflow, all benefiting Rotary’s causes. Prescott Frontier Rotary is a weekly gathering of local business leaders that provides opportunities to serve others, benefit the community while promoting high ethical standards, fellowship and goodwill in Prescott, Arizona and globally.
Watters Garden Center is a locally owned garden center that believes small businesses enrich their community and can change the world. Watters specializes in providing the expertise and products that get things growing in the mountains of Arizona, keeping the garden safe, natural and organic.
All are invited to the 14th annual Grapes-4-Grades that supports education, strong business ethics, better communities, ending polio and leadership skills even in the smallest of companies.
