A garden party — set for 5 to 8 p.m. Sunday, June 24, at Watter’s Garden Center, 1815 W. Iron Springs Road, Prescott — will benefit Prescott Frontier Rotary’s causes and the Prescott Unified School District’s 21st Century Grant Summer Program.

Last year, the Grapes-4-Grades benefit raised more than $52,000, according to a media release from Watters Garden Center.

This year’s 13th Annual Grapes-4-Grades benefit will feature the Steve Annibale Jazz Trio, 12 different wines and artisan beers for tasting, hors d’oeuvre catered by El Gato Azul, a live auction and raffle, all in Watter’s lush garden setting.

The event is open to the public, and tickets are $50, available at Watters Garden Center, Prescott True Value — 846 Miller Valley Road, Prescott — and Olsen’s Grain, 711 Elrod Road, Prescott.

The 21st Century Grant Summer Program supports kindergarten students through fourth-graders in a range of subjects, including science, computer use, gardening and yoga. All students are eligible for the summer program, which begins with breakfast and concludes with lunch. Last year, more than 200 students participated.
