30th Anniversary Fundraiser, Thursday, March 2, 2017

The Friends of Madera Canyon are celebrating our 30th Anniversary by having a big fundraising event on Thursday, March 2, 2017 in the Ballroom of the Madera Clubhouse at Quail Creek, starting at 5:30 pm. We are planning a fun and entertaining event with music, food, a silent auction and a special talk by Chris Bugbee, the research technician who did extensive monitoring on El Jefe, the jaguar discovered several years ago in the Santa Rita Mountains. Working for the University of Arizona and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, his extensive observations were the featured in a recent addition of the Smithsonian Magazine.

Tickets for this special event are $40 per person and are available at the Concierge Desk at the Madera Club House, the Green Valley-Sahuarita Chamber of Commerce office (checks and cash only) and online (Credit Card or PayPal) here. Please get your tickets soon as we expect the event will likely be a sellout. You do not want to miss this one! Be sure to bring your checkbook for the silent auction.
