Partnering with other community organizations to build synergy and focus to benefit our community when it comes to recreational programming and quality park facilities is something we strongly value. The Friends of Valley-Wide Foundation has created two (2) one-of-akind fundraising events. These events not only bring the community together, they generate donations that support critical programs that benefit the residents in the Valley-Wide Recreation District. One of those events is "The Weekend" Golf and Dinner Auction for the past 30 years, this 2-day event has generated over $1.5 million dollars, with 100% of all the money raised going back to the community. The second event is Autumn Elegance which is close to a community homecoming as they get with a program of food and wine tasting at its core. This event showcases restaurants from around the valley and local wines.
