YUMA, Arizona - Linda Morgan, executive director of Yuma Visitors Bureau, recently presented a check for $5,000 to the Yuma Veterans Fund of Arizona Community Foundation of Yuma (ACFY). Accepting on behalf of ACFY is Veronica Shorr, ACFY regional director, and Miguel Salcedo, ACFY regional philanthropic coordinator. The check represents proceeds from the Rio de Cerveza Brew Fest that took place in November. 

"We are delighted that the success of Rio de Cerveza this year enabled us to assist Yuma veterans to this extent," Morgan said. "The Brew Fest drew record attendance from the local community and beyond and we want to thank all of our supporters for helping to make this contribution possible."

Founded in 1993, the Arizona Community Foundation of Yuma secures, manages and allocates donor gifts for charitable purposes in Yuma County, working to improve the quality of life for all residents. Gifts to the Arizona Community Foundation of Yuma are held and managed as part of a permanent endowment.
