Benevilla is kicking up their heels by hosting their annual fundraising event, Dinner in the Desert, on Friday, March 25 at the beautiful Barn at Desert Foothills venue, located at East Jomax Road in Phoenix. While the fundraiser happens next month, tickets are now on sale.

At the event, attendees can join Benevilla for fireside cocktails at sunset, a desert sky full of stars, dinner, dancing, raffles, and music by the popular local western band Honeygirl, performing old and new country favorites. In addition to a lovely evening of dinner and dancing, there will be exciting fundraising activities for guests to help support the work Benevilla does in the community. These include chances to win raffle prizes for various dining, sports, shopping, staycation, and entertainment items.

Individual tickets to the event are $175, or guests can host a preferred table for 10 guests for $2,000, which includes their name on event signage and listing in the event program book. There are also several sponsorship levels available: from the $500 Silver Spur level or a Cowboy Coffee Bar sponsorship for $1,000 up to the $3,000 Campfire Cocktail Reception sponsor.
