Enjoy a Gourmet Dinner and Wine to Benefit Tucson’s Centennial Park

March 8, 2012

You have a chance to help the Centennial Park Project transform what is currently a vacant lot into an attractive pocket park to commemorate Arizona’s Statehood Centennial in 2012. The park will create a pedestrian oasis for citizens and visitors, featuring a curving walkway, benches, landscaping, and panels to interpret Tucson’s rich history.

A benefit dinner featuring a delicious gourmet dinner with wine prepared by Chef Mark Jorbin of Cafe A La Carte will be held on Saturday, March 17, with proceeds going to the Centennial Park Project.

You will be able to view the new historic markers in Centennial Park and receive a memorial brick with your name and dedication to be placed in Centennial Park. Featured guest speakers are Jim Turner, author of the newly released book Arizona and Dr. Jonathan Mabry, Tucson Historic Preservation Officer.

Guests will receive a signed copy of Arizona, a memorial brick in Centennial Park in addition to dinner and wine.

The Centennial Park Project has been designated an official Arizona Centennial Legacy Project by the Arizona Historical Advisory Commission.
