    We host Arizona’s Tastiest Fundrisers!

    Scottsdale League for the Arts hosts Arizona’s tastiest fundraisers to support the arts through culinary fundraisers.

    This year’s grant funding supports thousands through the 24 selected organizations, serving at-risk youth, hospitalized children, young composers, aspiring playwrights and more. We are pleased to announce the 2018 grants recipients. See the 2018 Grantees here.

    A HUGE THANK YOU to all of our 2018 volunteers! From pouring beverages and taking tickets to selling raffles and helping our event guests, our volunteers make our events possible. So far in 2018, volunteers have dedicated more than 1,100 hours to helping raise funds for the arts! And that’s just so far this year. With Cooks + Corks and The Brunch Club coming up, we rely heavily on the dedication and professionalism of our volunteers. We are able to support the local arts community because of the contributions of volunteers, event participants and sponsors. We appreciate you all!

    Third Thursday at THE VIG McDowell Mountain brought out a huge crowd to the outdoor patio on a beautiful evening. Thank you to all who attended and to the hard-working team at THE VIG McDowell Mountain who made the evening possible. We raffled two tickets to Cooks + Corks and raised extra money to support our grants next year. Thanks for donating to the arts. See you next month!
