One of Flutter at the Fountain’s newest activities, Family Discovery Day, is being organized by a couple of Fountain Hills’ newest residents, Sarah and Jake Rogers. Their goal, Sarah says, is to bring exposure to the different businesses and organizations throughout town which cater to families and youth – and to have some fun in the process.

“We’ll have inflatables, face painting and food trucks,” Sarah said, “as well as a stage for performances by some of the organizations.”

Tender Little Hearts Equine Therapy’s miniature horses and donkeys will be on hand as well as martial arts and dance organizations and the Fountain Hills Youth Theater. In keeping with the Hometown Heroes theme, representatives from the police and fire department will be there, too.

Family Discovery Day is part of a three-day Flutter at the Fountain fundraiser for the Fountain Hills Community Foundation. The activity will take place on Saturday, April 13 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Kids under 18 years of age are free; adults pay a $5 entrance fee. Tickets are available at Flutter24.GiveSmart.com.

Although the Rogers family are new residents of Fountain Hills, they are no strangers to working with children and families. Jake is campus pastor at Generations Church and Sarah is a TV Producer for the Dr. Phil show. She is also involved locally with the FHUSD PTO The family moved from the west side of Phoenix to Fountain Hills in March 2023.

“Families are a big part of our hearts and what we want to see flourish in Fountain Hills,” Sarah said. “When we were asked to coordinate the event, it just seemed very aligned with our hearts and passions for Fountain Hills.”

Proceeds from Flutter at the Fountain fund grants for local nonprofit organizations which serve seniors, children, and families. A full schedule of events is available at www.fountainhillsgives.com/flutter-at-the-fountain.
