The love of our community will be needed by local businesses soon
I miss you. I miss bumping into you in the store. I miss catching up in the “nuts and bolts” aisle and hearing how your kids are doing. I miss holding the door for you because your hands are full or just because it’s the right thing to do.[Read more…]

(SCOTTSDALE) Major League Baseball has decided to bring an early end to spring training because of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The Charros wish to thank the fans and players for an amazing season in its renovated and expanded Charro Lodge which debuted this spring after investments from its organization and the City of Scottsdale.
The shortened season will also have a negative impact on the Charros’ ability to give back to its education and charitable partners. Our charitable and educational partners depend on the financial resources we derive from the Charro Lodge and sponsorships within Scottsdale Stadium. The Charros are asking that ticketholders and sponsors consider donating the value of your unused tickets and sponsorships to The Charro Foundation so that we can continue to support the vital programs in Scottsdale public schools and our local charities.
The Charro Foundation emphasizes giving grants to Scottsdale-based nonprofits who do work in the areas of youth, youth sports, education, Scottsdale’s western heritage or cultural and community enrichment. The organization distributes approximately $1 million in such grants per year.
Executive Director Dennis Robbins said, “Because so much of our charitable efforts are dependent on funds raised during Spring Training this will unfortunately reduce our ability to help the community. However, the safety of the fans and the players must come first. Our membership will do all they can to offset this unfortunate loss of charitable revenues. We look forward to a full season of Cactus League play next year.”
Formed in 1961, the Scottsdale Charros are an all-volunteer, nonprofit group of business and civic leaders that help build our community by supporting youth sports, education and charitable causes. From the very beginning, the Charros—by their very name—meaning gentlemen riders, embodies Scottsdale’s 1947 slogan, the “West’s Most Western Town.”
