Mark your calendar, the MOMS Club of Phoenix – Happy Valley is holding another consignment sale in September 7 & 8. The best thing about this sale is that all proceeds benefit The Butterfly House (SWAN). Not only will you score some major deals, you will be helping out a wonderful, local charity. It’s a win-win!
Living in the Valley of the Sun definitely has its perks. Lucky for us, we share this city with a number of celebrities who love to give back to the community. Alice Cooper is one of my favorite local celebrities because of his love for this city and the children who grow up here. As a former teacher in the Paradise Valley Unified School District, Alice Cooper holds a special place in my heart. He recently donated a large sum of money to the PVUSD Arts Program. Not only did he donate funds to continue the program that is always on the chopping block with public education budget cuts, he personally attended a board meeting, giving parents, students, educators and administrators the chance to meet him face-to-face. Alice Cooper and his wife Sheryl are opening a local children’s and teen center on 32nd Street this spring called The Rock. This new center will be located near 32nd Street and Thunderbird — my old stomping grounds. Way to go Alice Cooper!

The time has finally come to make that dream a reality. A collaboration of Alice Cooper’s Solid Rock and Genesis Church, The Rock will minister to teens through the music, dance, art, vocational training in sound, lighting, and staging, and fellowship in a new, safe facility. With so many public schools forced to cut vital programs like music and dance due to lack of school funding, The Rock will cultivate a love of the arts to inspire and challenge teens to choose artistic excellence instead of drugs, guns, or gangs. Who knows what amazing performers, choreographers and producers might come from The Rock? PHASE ONE Music Instruction – teens learn to play guitar, bass, drums, form a band or practice with their existing band Dance Expression – teens will express themselves through dance, and learn various forms of dance Open Mic – an opportunity for teens to showcase their singing and musical talent and other forms of creative expression Coffee House – a small coffee/snack shop for gathering and fellowship After School Programs – mentorship with homework, projects, activities Vocational Training/Education – hands on training for sound, lighting, staging, and production Game Room – provides a place for fun and fellowship featuring video and other interactive games PHASE TWO Recording and Sound Room – teens will learn how to mix and record music and rehearse Computer Lab – access the Internet (monitored), complete homework projects, enhance computer skills and learn

Dollar Auction: So you want to know what a dollar auction is all about? Well the name can in fact be misleading because there is not much bidding involved. It is more like a bingo game with a twist. Donated items will be presented by the auctioneer. Depending on the cost of the item. It will cost you between $1-5 to “bid” on the item. Once you place your “bid” in the collection area in the center of your table, you will hold your paddle in the air. The auctioneer will begin pulling numbers out of the lottery bin. The only numbers that can win are the ones with paddles in the air. The auctioneer will continue to call numbers until there is a winner. Just imagine your excitement when you win an amazing gift basket for $1, a $150 drill set for $3, or a photography package with a $400 value for $5!
