Prescott Frontier Rotary is delighted to announce this year's annual Grapes 4 Grades fundraiser blew the corks off last year's event! On June 24, Watters Garden Center hosted the Rotary event, “A Garden Party,” featuring 12 different wines and artisan beers available for tasting, music with the Steve Annibale Jazz trio, delicious hors d'oeuvre catered by El Gato Azul, live auction, and cash drawing. In a beautiful evening setting, record 327 attendees were on hand to support the Rotarians' fundraiser to benefit their 21st Century Grant Summer Program. Thanks to the hardworking hosts and the generous Prescott community, Grapes 4 Grades raised more than $59,000, better than a 13% increase from 2017.
The 21st Century Grant Summer Program elevates kindergarten through 4th 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!
