BBBS joins JC Penneys in fundraiser

Big Brothers Big Sisters, the nation's largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, is joining forces with JC Penney in June for the retailer's charitable giving program, JCP Cares. By rounding-up purchases, both in-store and online at jcp.com, customers support maintaining and monitoring long-term mentoring matches to help local children who face adversity in school and life. All funds raised will stay local and benefit Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters serving the Quad Cities, Sedona and the Verde Valley.

The JC Penney store at the Prescott Gateway Mall will invite customers to become friends of Big Brothers Big Sisters by rounding up purchases to the nearest dollar and donating the difference to the nationwide mentoring organization. In addition, they will donate $1 for every $50 gift card sold in June, up to $50,000, giving Big Brothers Big Sisters an opportunity to receive additional funding.

Haggar also will support Big Brothers Big Sisters by running an in-store campaign in all JC Penney locations June 1-30. For any pair of Haggar pants purchased, Haggar will donate $1 to Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters, with a contribution of up to $50,000. Customers will have the opportunity to enter for a chance to win a trip to the 2013 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Weekend in Canton, Ohio.

Phippen Museum to host Ranch Day

The historic 7Up Ranch near Camp Wood will host the Phippen Museum's 3rd annual Ranch Day on Saturday, June 15. One of the largest ranches in Arizona, the 7-UP encompasses 70,000 acres and is currently owned and operated by Swayze and Kathy McCraine where they run 1,200 head of commercial cows and yearlings.

With a delicious Chuck Wagon barbecue lunch included, this day-long event will entertain guests with amazing demonstrations of horsemanship by accomplished, award-winning 8-year-old rider, Kadence Kasun, a mini calf-branding presentation by seasoned ranch hands and a team-roping competition between cowboys from three local ranches: the 7Up, the YOLO and the ORO. While the road to the 7Up is passable by car, SUV's or pickups are strongly recommended. Lawn chairs and sunscreen are also suggested.

Join the Phippen Museum and the 7Up Ranch as some of the state's most talented ranch hands allow guests a very special glimpse into the everyday operation of a working cattle ranch. A $50 donation per person is requested and a limited number of reservations can still be made by contacting the museum at 928-778-1385. Directions to the 7Up will be provided at that time.
