Sunday Venue—A Wonderfully Successful Season

Betty Hargrove and friends

John and Colleen Yu

Thank you to everyone who supported our Sunday Music, Dinner and Dance Venue this season. Because of you, we had our most successful season in recent history. With so many unknowns coming into this season (after cancelling the previous season due to COVID-19), we were prepared for disappointment. However, not only did all our former members from prior seasons show up, countless newcomers joined in to pack our ballroom to capacity.

We are excited about the start of the next season in just five short months. We were able to reserve the following dates for next season, starting in September. The dates and themes are as follows: Sept. 11, 2022 (Sinatra); Oct. 9, 2022 (Sock Hop); Nov. 13, 2022 (Latin); Dec. 4, 2022 (Christmas Swing and Show); Jan. 8, 2023 (Sinatra); Feb. 5, 2023 (Sock Hop); March 12, 2023 (Latin); and April 2, 2023 (Swing).

One of our proud achievements this season has been the abundance of single guests. We have had several tables filled with single attendees for each event. Mixers tables made it easy to meet others and partner up to dance. Also, we were excited to see the number of guests who simply came to enjoy the great music and dinner from our great Cottonwood kitchen. Our crowd favorite Rags Allen Band played not just pop songs, but all the requests from the audience. Table reservations for up to 12 people ahead of time at our venue allowed gatherings for many large groups. Because our band plays music at reasonable sound levels, everyone can still carry on conversations while the band plays.

We are now offering next season’s passes of $80 per person (which will only be available until the first venue date of Sept. 11). Season passes provide a $5 savings from the walk-up entry fee of $15 per person or $25 per couple.

If you are interested in purchasing a season pass, please mail your check(s) to John Yu, 9617 E. Sherwood Way, Sun Lakes, AZ 85248 (make checks payable to Sun Lakes Sunday Venue). Feel free to call me at 480-699-7334 if you have any questions.

Thank you all again for your support this past season. We look forward to seeing everyone again soon.
