Ice Cream and Music Friday Concerts start July 21!

What goes great with ice cream during the Arizona summertime?

It’s not hot fudge or the whip cream and cherry 🙂 …….

How about toe-tappin’ live music!

Beginning Friday,  July 21,  the Ice Cream and Music Friday Concert Series returns to the Shoppes at La Posada!

This year’s concert series benefits and supports The Community Food Banks of Amado & Green Valley.  We are spotlighting this great cause because every year the local food banks mission expands to meet the food insecurity needs of the Southern Arizona community.  From past summer concerts, non-perishable food and monetary donations ended up helping our local food bank meet and fill the needs of their customers.  Your support of our concert series may assist a great friend, fellow workmate, wonderful volunteer, future scholar, or kindly senior fill their pantry with food.

Also, all receipts earned at Posada Java during the concert hours ( 6 – 8 PM) will be donated to the local food bank too! So, go ahead and have that frosty treat and dance it off with your sweetheart or friends.
