Sonoran Stars Fundraiser for the Fragile Desert: April 29

For 15 years, In&Out Magazine has been the definitive source of “Everything that’s going on” in and out of the community. We thank you, our readers, as well as the businesses that support the magazine through advertising, for that opportunity. But with little going on, and many businesses suspending or canceling their ads during the Covid-19 crisis, we are suspending publication of the magazine and web sites for the month of May.

DESERT FOOTHILLS LAND TRUST — Guests to this year’s Sonoran Stars event to benefit Desert Foothills Land Trust will be treated to a fabulous evening on Saturday, April 29. The non-profit organization, which works to protect the beautiful landscape of our fragile Sonoran Desert, will hold the event at the Carefree Resort and Conference Center.

“We are looking forward to another exciting evening under the Sonoran Stars.  This year we will be treated to a true wild-west experience with gun slinging lawdogs and outlaws,” said Vicki Preston, Desert Foothills Land Trust’s executive director. “It’s sure to be a wonderful evening, celebrating our work to protect the desert we love.”

The Land Trust’s conservation efforts play a vital role in protecting the Sonoran Desert landscape that supports our community and businesses. “We simply cannot accomplish our important mission without the generous support of our Sonoran Stars sponsors, guests and other donors,” said Preston. 

Sonoran Stars will begin at 5 p.m. with a cocktail hour featuring an open bar and appetizers, as well as wild west entertainment with the Prescott Regulators and Their Shady Ladies. Guests will also have the opportunity to purchase “mystery” bags – a raffle that could result in winning a gift card to a local restaurant, a bottle of wine, art work or an exciting trip! Guests will then enjoy a wonderful gourmet dinner and more action packed entertainment in the Opera House.

As dinner winds down, auctioneer Brett Higgins will conduct a fast-paced live auction that will include a number of unique items and experiences like a trip to Nashville to attend the Country Music Awards. The event will also feature our incredible Emmy Award winning video celebrating the Land Trust’s conservation work, as well as the release of a rehabilitated raptor by Wild At Heart.

Tickets to “Sonoran Stars” are $250 per person. Sponsor tables for 10 guests and premium sponsor packages are available. Guests are encouraged to dress in casual or Western attire and should anticipate cool evening temperatures. Space is limited. To reserve tickets, visit www.dflt.org or call (480) 488-6131 x 2.
