FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Prescott Frontier Rotary Breaks All-Time Donation Record at Watters Garden Center
September 29, 2021: Prescott Frontier Rotary is delighted to announce this year’s Grapes 4 Good garden party blew the corks off all previous events! On September 19, Watters Garden Center hosted the Rotary event, “A Garden Party,” featuring 14 unique wines and artisan beers available for tasting, music with The Bob Shimizu Trio, hors d’oeuvre pairing by El Gato Azul, live auction, and the cash drawing. A record 307 attendees were on hand to support the Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, Rotary Math and Reading Clinic, Prescott High Path to Graduation, Bradshaw Mountain Interact Club, and more. Thanks to the hardworking hosts and a generous community, Grapes 4 Good raised $102,600, a 39% increase from their last garden party in 2019.
Prescott Frontier Rotary is a weekly gathering of community leaders who provide opportunities to serve others and benefit their community while promoting high ethical standards, fellowship, and goodwill in Prescott, Arizona, and worldwide.
“Rotary’s Foundation will match our donations often 3 to 1 when a club member senses a community need. We can do much good with the money donated at this year’s event,” says Daniel Machado, this year’s club president. Prescott Rotary Foundation donations are making our communities a better place to live. They helped restore emergency water to the town of Yarnell after a wildfire devastated the town. Books are donated every month of a child’s life through age five with help from Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, Rotary Shelterbox provides emergency shelters to support families who lost their homes in disaster, and so much more.
Watters Garden Center is a locally owned garden center that believes small businesses enrich their community and 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.
