Roy Graydon wins a 2017 Mercedes-Benz

Roy Graydon is the winner of the DMCF 2017 Mercedes-Benz Raffle.

Roy Graydon is the lucky winner whose name was plucked from the bowl during the drawing for the DMCF 2017 Mercedes-Benz Raffle held in January. 

"When I got the call, we were just heading into a movie," Roy said. "My reaction was 'Are you kidding me?!!!' When I got off the phone, my wife said to me, ’It was probably a telemarketing call.' It wasn’t until the next day that we actually said, ‘Yup, this is for real!’ " 

"I am 100% in support of the goals and objectives of the Desert Mountain Community Foundation," Roy went on to say. "I think that you do very good work and I will contribute again."

The DMCF Board of Advisors sponsored the DMCF 2017 Mercedes-Benz Raffle as part of their effort to build an endowment, making it possible to award at least $25,000 annually in perpetuity.

Expo III is a resounding success

The Desert Mountain Community Foundation, together with the Desert Mountain Club, Inc., the Desert Mountain Master Association and DMCF's Strategic Partner, Russ-Lyon|Sotheby's International Realty at Desert Mountain, presented the DMCF Expo III in October. The event showcased businesses that provide services to enhance your lifestyle, while helping to grow the Scholarship Fund benefiting Desert Mountain employees and their families.

Expo III presented opportunities to meet friends, taste “old school” cocktails, enter individual vendor drawings and, of course, sample wonderful food. Thanks to participating vendors, raffle ticket buyers and donors, the financially successful EXPO III raised over $85,000 for the DMCF Scholarship Fund.
