Who We AreThe Desert Foundation Auxiliary selects and presents to the community young ladies from the Scottsdale,Town of Paradise Valley and Carefree areas at the annual Desert Ball in December. Proceeds from the Desert Ball are disbursed annually for charitable, scientific, literary, and educational causes within the meaning of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.
Our HistoryThe Desert Foundation Auxiliary was conceived in recognition of a need which existed in this community, to present young ladies at a Debutante Ball while raising funds for deserving charities. The DFA is now firmly established and our social activities have been well organized. We can be assured that its future will be enduring as a recognized and responsible organization dedicated to the well-being of our young people. Our charitable obligations are accomplished through the Desert Foundation which has been established and will serve to implement the Auxiliary’s objectives.
