The Verdes Charity Roundup
The Verdes Charity Roundup (TVCR) is the annual fundraising event for the Verdes communities of Tonto Verde, Rio Verde, Trilogy at Verde River and the surrounding foothills. Each year the communities select four local charities to support via a community survey. The event is organized and run by an all unpaid volunteer group. The 2020 event supported VerdeCares, Reigning Grace Ranch, Folds of Honor AZ and Sunshine Acres. The 2020 main event was held at Tonto Verde and included AM & PM golf events, silent auctions, sit down dinner and live auction, and concluded with charity speeches plus a fund the need appeal. Golfers, non-golfers and residents, not-at- the-event, participated online for the silent auction items and provided donations.
The 2020 event was held on March 5th, 2020 and generated $274,500 in revenue with $98,400 going to VerdeCares.
