The Tee Up for Tots organization is hosting a benefit Saturday, May 21, to raise funds for the University of Arizona’s Steele Children’s Research Center.

The UA children’s center is comprised of physicians and scientists working to research causes and develop cures for childhood illnesses and diseases. As one of the nine prestigious Centers of Excellence within the UA College of Medicine, the organization’s goal is to advance medical knowledge to improve the health of Arizona’s children as well as children throughout the world

With music, dancing, raffles and a casino, the event is being dubbed “a fun night out.”

Tesoro & Vampyros Bonobos will provide live music.

The event will also include wine tasting and food, starting at 7 p.m. at Omni Tucson National Resort, 2727 W. Club Drive.

For more information, call 275-3733 or go online to www.teeupfortots.org.

Tee Up for Tots is a grassroots charity started by the parents of Courtney Zillman, who died of cancer at the age of four in 1999.

Jerry and Kathy Zillman have since dedicated their efforts to help other pediatric cancer patients and their families who find themselves in the same heartbreaking situation.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
