Waste Management (Phoenix) Open Raises 4.4 Million for Charities – What About Next Year?

The Phoenix Open is one of  Scottsdale’s biggest annual events, drawing huge crowds and celebrities to enjoy “the greatest show on grass.” When in town for the Phoenix Open, many visitors prefer to stay on Scottsdale’s “resort row,”  the section of Scottsdale Road between Shea Blvd and Camelback Roads. Our sunny Scottsdale vacation rental condo is located in the middle of resort row!  Anyways, The Phoenix Open is a fantastic event, and it’s a fundraiser for the Thunderbirds’ charities. Recent news articles suggest that this past year they raised over $4.4 Million  for charities. The fundraising achievement is nothing to balk at, especially considering the major economic challenges and corporate pull backs in earlier 2010. Congrats to the Thunderbirds for another outstanding Phoenix Open, AKA Waste Management Open. We look forward to the 2011 Waste Management Open, and are going to be welcoming guests to our fantastic sunny Scottsdale vacation rental condo.

Scottsdale’s Soleri Bridge project is Underway

Comments Off on Scottsdale’s Soleri Bridge project is Underway Nearby Things To Do, Sight Seeing, Uncategorized

Scottsdale has done very well by continuing to invest in public art. This commitment continues to make Scottsdale a beautiful and interesting place for visitors and residents. The public arts project is clearly one of many factors making Scottsdale a top vacation destination. In 1985, the Arizona city of Scottsdale adopted a one percent for art ordinance and established the Scottsdale Public Art Program with the goal to enhance the quality of life afforded area residents and visitors. Scottsdale’s program and projects have won local, regional and national awards. Public art has taken many forms ranging from the walls of the Pima Freeway to James Turrell’s Skyspace at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art. I am excited about the latest addition, and I know visitors to our Sunny Scottsdale Condo Vacation Rental will enjoy the new Soleri addition.
