At the August 9th Philanthropic Awards Luncheon at the Prescott Resort, hosted by the Arizona Community Foundation - Yavapai County, Verde Valley Bikes For Kids was one of five Shining Star recipients. ACF Shining Stars are recognized annual for their transformative work in the community.
Verde Valley Wheel Fun Treasurer, Kevin Adams, attended the luncheon which required each Shining Star to give a two minute presentation of their program to the approximately 400 in attendance. Up for grabs was $300/table from the Arizona Community Foundation and any individual contributions from attendees.
Yesterday, Lisa Sahady of ACF-Yavapai County informed Verde Valley Wheel Fun that it will be receiving $9,100.00 from the luncheon. These proceeds will go to the Verde Valley Bikes For Kids Program which plans to distribute 100 new Trek bicycles to students at all 8 Verde Valley elementary schools in the spring of 2020.
