Alice Eckstrom Scholarship Dinner, 9/24

When community activist Mary Alice Eckstrom died in March, there was one less person working for the common good of Tucson, one less person who made an effort to improve the lives of others through education.

But her family and friends refuse to let her valiant spirit remain quiet. A scholarship fundraising dinner will be held Friday so that others can follow Eckstrom's community footprints.

The Mary Alice Eckstrom Celebración de la Comunidad- the Celebration of the Community - will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Kino Recreation Center at 2805 E. Ajo Way, near South Country Club.
