Members and guests of Superstition Mountain Golf and Country Club joined Gold Canyon Arts Council to raise awareness and funds for its 3rd annual charity event. More than $15,000 was raised at the event to support art and music education programs in local schools, according to a press release.
Sponsored by Superstition Mountain, the annual event took place on March 14 at the residence of Debra and Rodney Bortel. More than 80 attendees enjoyed an evening of music, tapas-style dishes and Spanish wine. The event included a live performance featuring flamenco guitarist Chris Jácome and his wife, Lena, a flamenco dancer.
The Gold Canyon Arts Council was founded in 1998 to help promote and encourage the arts in low-to-moderate income areas of Maricopa, Pinal and Gila Counties. Through a series of culturally diverse public performances, festivals, educational residency programs and artistic awards, the organization sponsors and promotes performing, visual and other art-related activities in the greater Gold Canyon area.
“Superstition Mountain Golf and Country Club is proud to work with the Gold Canyon Arts Council in its effort to support our local schools,” said Mark Gurnow, General Manager of Superstition Mountain. “Our club values the local community and considers art and music programs to be a crucial part of a well-rounded education.”
