Celebrating Our Desert Landscape

Sonoran StarsThe Desert Foothills Land Trust will celebrate 20 years and host its 2015 Sonoran Stars fundraising event at the new Desert Foothills event venue, which provides a lighted desert landscape, fabulous barn, outdoor dining and stage area and on-site valet parking. Located near Jomax and Scottsdale roads, behind McDonald’s Ranch, the venue provides the luxurious comfort Sonoran Stars is known for, as well as the direct connection to the desert environment that the organization and its supporters are working to protect.

Guest will enjoy an open bar, appetizers, silent auction, gourmet dinner prepared by Chef Tony Rea, Wild At Heart’s dramatic rehabilitated raptor release, fast-paced live auction with auctioneer Letitia Frye, capped off with dancing under the stars to country music by Western Fusion and dancers from Fred Astaire Dance Studios. Dress for the evening is casual or Western attire – but be prepared for cool evening temperatures.

The 2015 Sonoran Stars event will be held Saturday, May 2, from 5-10pm. Tickets are $250 per person; or gather friends together to host a own table of 10.  Business and individual sponsorships are available as well. Contact Sonia Perillo, executive director, at 480.488.6131 or sperillo@dflt.org, for sponsorship information.
