The Tucson Symphony Orchestra League is hosting Boots 'N' Spurs, a fund-raiser for the TSO featuring a barbecue, auctions, line dancing and live music, on Saturday, March 20 at the Hilton Tucson El Conquistador Golf and Tennis Resort in Oro Valley.

The evening begins at 5 p.m. with a margarita bar and the traditional chips and salsa in the Last Territory, a special event venue taking guests back to the Old West.

There are raffle prizes, silent auction items and a 50/50 drawing. In the silent auction, guests have a chance to bid on such items as two hours for two people in a Lear Jet 60 Simulator, a $2,000 value; Ventana Golf for four (including cart and green fees), an $800 value; a two-night stay at the Hilton El Conquistador Golf and Tennis Resort, a $500 value; a day for two at Canyon Ranch, a $500 value and a vase from the Tom Philabaum Glass Studio and Gallery, a $195 value.

The gourmet menu features barbecued spare ribs, chicken with prickly pear sauce, jalapeno au gratin potatoes, rice, grilled corn on the cob, ranch beans, corn bread and for dessert, tres leches cake, tiramisu and coffee.

The Bill Ganz Western Band will provide the entertainment, playing the Western heritage classics that have made them a Tucson favorite for almost 20 years. Attendees will get a preview of the Bill Ganz Western Band's performance with the TSO Pops! the following weekend, March 26, 27 and 28 at the Tucson Music Hall, where they will perform such hits as "Ghost Riders in the Sky," songs inspired right here in Tucson.

Tickets to Boots 'N' Spurs are $100 per person; $50 is tax deductible because the event is a fund-raiser for the Tucson Symphony Orchestra League, which supports the Tucson Symphony Orchestra through fund-raising programs and events. TSOL President Norma Ancona says it isn't necessary to dress up for Boots 'N' Spurs, "just jeans and boots and maybe a cowboy hat."

For an invitation or reservation, call Jo Clark (520) 885-2179.

Sponsors of Boots 'N' Spurs are Settlers West and Medicine Man Galleries.

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.
