Prescott Creeks and Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters were the recipients of a generous contribution from the producers of the 2016 Tilted Earth Festival. As co-organizers of the Festival’s silent and online auction, Big Brothers Big Sisters and Prescott Creeks were on-hand at a check presentation ceremony held Oct. 18 at Page Springs Cellars in Cornville. The regional nonprofits look forward to putting the contribution to good work supporting kids and the environment throughout the Verde River Watershed.
Teaming up with Festival producers Page Springs Cellars and End of the Tunnel Ventures LLC, Prescott Creeks and Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters worked with artists, businesses, dining and entertainment establishments, and others throughout the region to put on the silent auction during the three-day celebration of music, wine, and community that took place in Cottonwood this past June.
With the total contributions of almost $25,000 shared between the two organizations, these contributions will boost their efforts in enhancing the lives of young people and building awareness and appreciation for our local waterways and natural areas.
