Making a difference for local foster kids this holiday season can be as easy as sitting back and enjoying good food, good music, and good company in Ahwatukee Foothills next Sunday.

The Kiwanis Club of Ahwatukee will once again host a fundraiser to support their Foster Care Christmas Project at the home of Andi and Robin Pettyjohn, 3926 E. Tanglewood Drive, at 3 p.m. on Nov. 10.

Last year, with only three weeks notice the group adopted two group foster homes and provided each child at the home a gift bag with clothes, a gift card to Wal-Mart or Target, and a gift card for the movies.

This year, the group decided to get a jump start on fundraising for the project in order to reach even more kids. The Pettyjohns had a concert at their home featuring the Ronstadt Generations from Tucson in June. Turnout was good and the event raised $1,500, but because of the time of year, many people were out of town or busy with graduation. Andi Pettyjohn said that’s why they decided to host another concert at their home this fall.

“Now it’s closer to Christmas and the weather will be nice, we thought we could have it outside on a Sunday afternoon,” he said. “The more donations we receive the more foster kids we can provide Christmas gifts to.”

Ronstadt Generations play a mix of American Folk music and traditional Southwestern and Mexican songs as well as original music.

The group is asking for a minimum donation of $25 per person for the event.

Tickets can be purchased through PayPal at ahwatukeekiwanis.org, by check sent to P.O. Box 50596, Phoenix, 85076, or at the door. RSVP to Andi Pettyjohn at andi@wttaz.com, or by calling (602) 402-6267.
