Hops_and_Vines_This Saturday February 20th from 12 noon- 9 p.m. will be the inaugural Hops and Vines Art Festival with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the American Foundation for Cardiomyopathy (FFC). Taking place at Desert Foothills park in Ahwuhtukee festival goers will get to see art, taste wine, beer & food and hear live music & performance art which will give you sensory overload as heart month is celebrated.

Artists demonstrating painting, glass blowing, sculpting and more will be sharing their expertise along with local chefs doing cooking demonstrations & flavor pairings.

“In Ahwatukee there’s such a strong sense of tradition with community events,” Anthony Miller, founder and president of American FFC said. “That’s why I decided to host this inaugural event here. I want to create an environment that people of all ages can enjoy while bringing awareness to cardiomyopathy and those affected by it.”

American FFC is a charitable organization that creates awareness of and supports those affected by Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy, a serious heart condition that affects 1 in 500 student athletes every year, often without any sign or warning.
