Thank You!

On behalf of Love Works, Carol Spencer Royall, Averill Lovely, and Mimi Phillips would like to take a moment to express our gratitude for an amazing and successful event.

We would like to begin by thanking Cheryl Langer, Tracy Taft, and our sponsors, who played a crucial role in making this event possible. We appreciate the generous support and contributions from the Ajo Council for the Fine Arts (sponsored in part by: the DeGrazia Art and Cultural Foundation Fund Endowment for the Arts of Tucson Fund and Viola Steinfeld O'Neil Fund CFSA combined unrestricted Fund), Freeport McMoRan, Southwest Folklife Alliance, Community Foundation for Southern Arizona, Arizona Commission on the Arts, Arizona Community Foundation, Free Range Internet, and International Sonoran Desert Alliance. Your dedication to our community is truly commendable, and we look forward to working with you again in the future. Thank you for helping us make this event a success!

Next, we want to express our gratitude to all of our volunteers who dedicated their time, energy, and resources to make this event a huge success. Without your hard work and commitment, we wouldn't have been able to pull off such a wonderful experience. We hope that you will continue to support us in the years to come.

We also want to thank our amazing musicians, performers, and vendors, Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument and Arizona Raptor Center for providing us with a day filled with entertainment, education, delicious food, and beautiful handmade products. Your talent and creativity were greatly appreciated by everyone who attended. And an additional shout out to the galleries and businesses that opened their doors on Sunday: Sonoran Winds Studio, Captain Kirk’s, Burro Blessings and Soul Saguaro Therapeutic Massage, Roadrunner Java, Copper Javelina, Ajo Copper News, The Ajo Store, Cornelia’s Curiosities, Art Under the Arches, 3 Nations, and the Ajo Museum.

Last but certainly not least, we would like to thank all of our attendees who came out and shared in the festivities. Your presence and participation made this event truly special. We would also like to extend an extra special thanks to the following:

Sophia Seevers and John Wulf - creators of the Love Works logo, Liz Yon, Gabrielle David, Hop David, and Ajo Copper News, Anadyr Elliott, Cristal Franco, Vicki Tapp, Bo Johnson and Ajo District Chamber of Commerce, Shari Broyer, Morgana Wallace-Cooper and Bonzai Studio, Victor Garcia and 3 Nations, Sue Buchel, Bill Perry, Jesus Garcia, Heather and William Odom, Bucky Sandoval, Rodney Hopkins, Brooke Hemenway, Jill Shank, Jessica Russell, Steve Jarrett, Laurel and Trevor Gloor, Melanie and David Candia, Jaime and Paul, Gabriel Cooper, Madi Coleman, Hennessy Sanchez, and the local National Guard.

We at Love Works hope that you had as much fun as we did, and that you will join us again next year.

See you in 2024!

Get ready for an unforgettable evening of stargazing and toe-tapping tunes out at Cowpie Mountain! Bring your chair, your instrument, and your appetite because Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument is providing the telescopes while The Kitchen Table Band (Ajo's premier Hillbilly Swing band) heats up the night with live music while you eat. Afterward, settle in for a fireside jam session like you haven't seen since the Year of the Big Onions!
