Tilted Earth Festival supports kids and the environment

Eric and Gayle Glomski of Page Springs Cellars presented $20,000 to three regional nonprofits in a ceremony held Aug. 7 at Page Springs Cellars in Cornville.

Prescott Creeks Preservation Association, Friends of the Verde River, and Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters were beneficiaries of the 2018 Tilted Earth Festival Silent Auction. Representatives from the three organizations, Michael Byrd, Executive Director for Prescott Creeks, Laura Jones, Community Engagement Coordinator for Friends of the Verde River, and Erin Mabery, Big Brothers Big Sisters Verde Valley Executive Director were on-hand at a check presentation ceremony. The regional nonprofits look forward to putting the contributions to good work supporting kids and the environment throughout Yavapai County.

Teaming up with Festival producers, Page Springs Cellars and End of the Tunnel Ventures LLC, Prescott Creeks, Friends of the Verde River, and 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 two-day celebration of music, wine, and community that took place at Page Springs Cellars in June.

The total contributions of $20,000 shared between the three organizations will boost their efforts in enhancing the lives of young people, building awareness and appreciation for local waterways and natural areas, as well as making on-the-ground-improvements in Yavapai County.
