In-Home Concerts

FHCF grant discounts tickets for "students" of music

Music students ages 9-80 enjoyed discounted In-Home Concert tickets

When the In-Home Concert series board wanted to encourage attendance from a younger audience, they applied for a grant from the Fountain Hills Community Foundation so they could subsidize tickets for music students who would not normally attend one of their concerts.

After securing a $720 grant in 2023, they sent introductory letters to local public and private schools, music teachers, church music directors, and music studios in the hopes of soliciting student referrals to attend their 2024 Concert Series.


Flutter artist Jennifer Ward

"We love the community and everyone working to help each other out."

Anyone who has eaten at Mountain View Kitchen certainly knows that owner Jennifer Ward is passionate about cooking. But the business owner and Flutter sponsor is also a talented artist. So when Flutter organizers approached her about coordinating food for the Gala, she asked about becoming a Flutter butterfly artist, too.

“Butterflies are my passion,” she said. “I actually have a butterfly tattoo on my shoulder. They remind me of my father, a symbol of new life and new things coming.”


Why I Give: Ann and Gerard Bisceglia

"Fountain Hills is worth investing in"

It might have been a game of golf at Desert Canyon that initially brought Ann and Gerard Bisceglia to Fountain Hills, but it was the plane ride home that convinced them to move here in 1993.

“I was looking out the window as we flew over Fountain Hills and the Fountain was going off,” Gerard remembers. “I called my wife (Ann) who was in Phoenix working with a realtor to find us a place to live at the time and said “you gotta check this place out”.”

The rest, as they say, is history.


Thank you Flutter sponsors!

When we first decided to expand Flutter at the Fountain from a one day to a three-day community event, we knew it would take support from our the entire community, especially our sponsors. Thanks to their generosity, our 2024 Giving Season will provide grants to nonprofit organizations in the Fountain Hills area which support children, families, and seniors.

Please help show your appreciation for their efforts by saying "thank you" when you encounter these sponsors in our community.
