Besides the ample hiking trails and the gorgeous scenery, the Verde Valley is home to another gem… local wineries! The hot, dry air is the perfect climate for grapes and there are several beautiful wineries all within a 30 minute drive from Sedona.

Consider adding one of these wineries to your list of things to do!

Stop by the Verde Valley Wine Trail for more information on all the wineries in the area! There are also several tasting rooms including a few in historic Jerome!

If you are planning a trip to Sedona this summer you may want to look into booking a trip on the Verde Canyon Railroad! The four hour trip will show you some of the most spectacular areas of the Verde Valley! You might feel like you’ve traveled back in time when you visit their quaint train station and board the historic trains! During the summer they have some special events including a wine tasting trip and a tequila tasting trip!

Starting today, 12/12/2010 and going until 12/22/2010, we will be dedicating the next two weeks to others. We need your help to brighten the spirits of others this holiday season!

The Red Rock Café Management, Family, and Staff have decided to dedicate the next two weeks to fundraising for those less fortunate this holiday season. If you choose to help your donation may consist of any monetary amount, canned food items, new clothing items, or new toys.

Our goal is to bring a smile to the face of a child or adult this season that would not otherwise have food for the table, money for utilities or rent or a toy under the Christmas tree.

All donations will be given to families in the local community. Donations can be dropped off during our business hours.

Thank you for your help and Merry Christmas!


Thank You!

As always, we asked you to give and you did not disappoint! In June we had a “Let’s Send a Kid to Camp” Drive where we accepted cash donations to help send a terminally ill child to Camp Soaring Eagle. Although we were unable to reach our goal during the month of June, I am proud to announce that we have nearly $1200 and the money keeps coming in! We had the opportunity to volunteer during a family camp session at the Briar Patch Inn recently. To see the smile on the kid’s faces was such a great pleasure. Rosalie’s catering provided food for the families and one parent stated that, that week was the best their family had eaten in a long time. When you spend much of your time in a hospital and the majority of your money on medical expenses, you don’t have a lot left for the things we take for granted like a proper meal. The donations you gave and continue to give are really making a difference to these families and children. For one week they were able to forget about all their stresses and just enjoy time as a family. It is safe to say these families don’t take vacations so to get away to beautiful Sedona was something they will never forget! To see more pictures of the campers and their families, check out the Camp’s Facebook Page!

We also wrapped up a very successful “Care Package Drive” for our troops last month! You came through big time and we are sending food, entertainment, and toiletry items that I know will brighten a few soldiers days! Thank you for your support!

For the month of August we are collecting any new supplies that may be helpful to students or teachers. With budgets tight all around, many times teachers purchase supplies out of their own pockets just to insure kids have everything they need. In an effort to help we are collecting school supplies or classroom supplies like tissues or hand sanitizer.

We are positive that we have the most generous and thoughtful customers around and we thank you for continuing to help us make an impact on our community!

July is upon us and that means the patriotic bits in all of us come out in full force. If I got a dime for every time someone asked me what I was doing for the 4th, I’d be able to pay rent. As we all are planning barbecues, lake trips, picnics and the like, let us not forget to think of and thank the men and women who are fighting to insure our freedom and give us a reason to celebrate! For the month of July we will be holding a “Care Package” Drive for our adopted soldier, MSG Manuel Paulino and his unit. It’s our simple little way of saying Thank you by showing our soldiers that people back home are thinking of them and supporting them. If you’d like to help, the following items are most appreciated:

  • Snacks that won’t melt or spoil: Sunflower seeds, gum, power bars, etc.
  • Powdered drinks
  • Non-aerosol toiletry items: Deodorant, baby powder, feminine hygiene, tooth paste…
  • Handheld games, magazines, books, DVDs, music, or cards
  • The ability to do laundry is in short supply so black socks, room freshener and even sheets are appreciated.
  • There are some regulations about what can and can not be sent so before dropping any items off read this.

Thank You notes will be made available if you just want to write a few words of appreciation. You are welcomed and encouraged to bring your own letters, notes, or drawings.

Care packages are HUGE morale boosters to soldiers and the least we can do. Help us bring a smile to the men and women who sacrifice so much.

If you can’t be a part of our drive, consider adopting your own soldier and send items to them. It is free and anyone can do it. The only requirement is that you are willing to show some support to a soldier overseas.
