The historic Rock Springs Café, located next door to Black Canyon City, will once again be the venue for this year’s “Annual Wine, Pie and Cheese Fundraiser” Saturday, Oct 8th. The fundraiser will be held outdoors in the Garden Patio of Rock Springs Café, situated at the base of the beautiful Bradshaw Mountains. This year’s event will be hosted by residents of Black Canyon City, Randy McLaughlin and Lori Martinez.

The event will be held to raise funds for three organizations in need of funding; Canon Elementary for the arts and music program, HELP (Homeless Engagement Lift Partnership) and OCJ Kids (Opportunity, Community and Justice for Kids.)

The event is from 5:30 pm to 10:00 pm and includes a silent auction from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, casino gambling with the local famous AZ Duude from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm, and DJ and dancing under the stars in the cool evening until 10:00 pm with Fenton Parker of Parker Entertainment.  A new addition to the gambling area will be a Craps table, along with the usual Blackjack and Roulette tables.

The cost is $20 per ticket if purchased in advance, or $25 at the door. A table of eight can be purchased for $150 (if purchased in advance only). The price includes three glasses of various wines and $500 in “poker chips” for gambling. There will be light appetizers served such as cheese, crackers, fruit, nuts, chocolate and the pie served that evening will be donated by the historic Rock Springs Café.
