Dusty Wings of the Desert board president Carrie Coons and vice president Althea Heagy presented an $8,000 check to Tools for Tomorrow board president Judith Antonio at an April 8 luncheon at Chaparral County Club.
Antonio expressed gratitude for Dusty Wings’ support of TFT’s free after-school arts literacy program in Coachella Valley elementary schools.
Dusty Wings board president-elect Jean Carrus introduced TFT’s executive director, Andrea Hecht, who spoke about how volunteers can assist teachers in the classrooms, ensuring that students feel “seen”; help with social media (especially by taking photos and videos); assemble art kits; and more.
TFT is gearing up for the July 23 “Christmas in July” brunch or dinner concert at The Roost Lounge in Cathedral City; people can enter creative holiday wreaths for the contest/auction.
