Make a wish on a four leaf clover. That’s what the Foothills Caring Corps did this past week when the weather turned foul and we realized we needed a new place for the Taste of Foothills’ annual fundraiser. CIVANA Carefree Resort (formerly Carefree Resort) came through in a big way and in twenty-four hours our luck had changed.
The new venue is a wonderful ballroom at CIVANA. Just like an Irish village, local restaurants Harold’s Corral Cave Creek, The Herb Box, Liberty Station Tavern, Venue’s Café, Bryan’s Black Mountain Barbecue, CIVANA Carefree, It’s a Divine Bakery and Café Bink gave away wonderful tastes of local gourmet food. The Irish music from Kilted Spirit, filled the air as the guests filled the room and drinks flowed from the three bars provided by CIVANA.
As the guests finished their food, Irish Step dancers – from the Bracken School of Irish Dance-entertained. Soon, Terry O of Channel 15 and Jonathan Blair the auctioneer stepped up to auction off wonderful trips and experiences. Many people dueled to win the fabulous prizes. This was followed by the opportunity to donate to the Caring Corps through an ASK and the guests came through in such a generous way!
Irish eyes were surely smiling on all involved with the Taste of Foothills 2018!
