For many years, the Valle Verde Rotary Club of Green Valley has presented “Jazz In The Desert” as a major fundraiser, benefitting area schools’ jazz bands and other Rotary projects.  Through the Spring of 2020, that amount has totaled over $125,000.  Knowing that conditions would not be right for a live “Jazz” event in the spring of 2021, the Club launched “Jazz In The Desert Reimagined” in November 2020 as a non-event event. Contributions and sponsorships were overwhelmingly successful.
At the Club’s regular weekly meeting on Thursday, April 1, the Club gave $1000.00 checks to these teachers: (photo, L-R)
