Residents of SaddleBrooke Ranch have enjoyed events at the Oracle Center for the Arts hosted by the Oracle Piano Society prior to the pandemic. The Piano Society would like to invite the Ranch to attend a fundraiser piano concert on July 10 at 2 p.m. All attendees are required to wear masks. The concert will feature Issac Tineo, 14, and Oracle pianist Annalupe Rodriquez, 17, both students of Elaine Helzer of Oracle.

These two students are performing the concert to help raise $55,000 for emergency surgery for Issac’s grandfather, Daniel Tineo, of San Manuel, Ariz. Daniel needs urgent surgery to remove a growing tumor from his pituitary gland. He has been struggling with severe migraines for almost eight months. The family has no insurance.

Besides the concert, funding is also being sought through donations to a GoFundMe account at, where further information is available. You can also go to and search “Daniel Tineo.”

The Oracle Center for the Arts is located at 700 E. Kingston St. in Oracle, Ariz. The Oracle Piano Society is dedicated to presenting piano and other musical programs of exceptional quality and artistry in the high-desert community of Oracle. Visit for more information.
