The clock is ticking to submit nominations for 2010 “Bright Heart Award” recipients. Verde Valley Presbyterian Church will honor three Verde Valley volunteers during its 25th Anniversary celebration, “2010 Harvest Moondance,” on Saturday, Oct. 2, 7-9 p.m. “Bright Heart Awards” recognize three Verde Valley residents who have provided outstanding examples of volunteerism, service or heroism to local residents. Nominees may be selected posthumously. Nominations are due by 5 p.m. Friday, July 30.
The “2010 Harvest Moondance” doubles as a church community outreach benefit with part of event proceeds being donated to each of the award recipient’s causes of choice. Advance tickets are now on sale for $5 per person (more at the door). Buy your tickets now as seating is limited.
Entry to “2010 Harvest Moondance” includes sweets and treats along with big band/ballroom dance entertainment with Shondra Jepperson of Sedona’s popular duo Entertainment by Tom & Shondra as emcee/DJ. Enjoy a ballroom dance exhibition and free group dance lesson provided by Sedona Ballroom. Part-time Sedona Ballroom instructor Sherry Ticktin will also be on hand to assist with other dance activities.
The community is invited to partake in all this and more at Verde Valley Presbyterian Church, 1500 E. Hombre Drive, Cottonwood. For nomination forms and more information, contact the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (928) 634-0019.
