Picnic in the moonlight fundraiser
Mark your calendars and get ready for a boot-stomping good time: Picnic in the Moonlight is a-comin’! The event, a fundraiser for the Verde Valley Sanctuary, will take place on May 18, 2014, at 4 p.m. at Sky Ranch Lodge on Airport Mesa. Relax with a cold beer, shop for provisions at the Country Store, kick up your heels to live music and bid on beautiful gourmet baskets filled with tasty vittles from your favorite local restaurants. Once you’ve won your basket, make yourself comfortable at checker-clothed tables and enjoy your feast surrounded by your friends and neighbors (not to mention one of the best red rock views in town).
In addition to your school tax donation credit, you can also donate $200 per individual to a qualifying charitable organization such as Verde Valley Sanctuary! Please click here for more information regarding the tax credit.

Verde Valley Sanctuary was awarded the 2011 Alfred P. Sloan Awards for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility for the second year in a row.
Using a rigorous scoring methodology that uses national benchmarks and emphasizes the real life experiences of employees on the job, the Sloan Awards honor organizations that are using workplace flexibility as a strategy to make work work better—for both the employer and the employee. It is a site-based award, and for employers with more than one location it is the local worksite that applies for and wins the award.
