Gift from Treats and Talents Auctions
The annual Treats and Talents Auction held March 11 raised enough funds to support SaddleBrooke Community Outreach, IMPACT, Youth on Their Own and several science projects in neighboring schools. Co-chair Arthur Posner presented a check for $6,000 to SBCO President Joan Roberts as part of the proceeds from this popular local event.
This gift will be used to support programs of SBCO that benefit needy children in neighboring communities. That includes clothing, educational opportunities and food programs. A new pilot program will be launched this summer that will target 50 youngsters in the Mammoth community by providing food bags during July into August to supplement what they do receive from the food bank.
After eight years, this was the final auction co-chaired by Arthur and Ann Vernon. It was a wonderful event, enjoyed by many in the SaddleBrooke community and has provided many organizations with funds to continue or add programs for needy neighbors. SBCO is grateful for all who support the Treats and Talents Auction!
The 2015 Ford Mustang 50th Anniversary Edition car was on display at the April shredding event in SaddleBrooke. You have an opportunity to buy a raffle ticket for this car from SaddleBrooke Community Outreach! There are only 1,965 of these cars produced, and Ford Motor Company has provided one to the Jim Click Automotive Team.
There will be 300 Tucson charities selling tickets for the car, and SaddleBrooke Community Outreach has been offered the opportunity to be among the 300. SBCO has 200 tickets, priced at $25 for one ticket, or five for $100. SBCO will keep 100% of the proceeds to support our programs, which include Kids’ Closet, Teen Closet, education and food support for needy children in neighboring communities.
Rumors circulating around the car were that it would ultimately be worth $300,000. Now, they were rumors, but do you need to help a child get a college education? Help our kids, dream about this great Mustang and possibly own a bit of history. Tickets are available at Suite L in the commercial center Monday through Wednesday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., or visit our website www.community-outreach.org. Is a road trip in your future?
