The Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale is introducing a new and unique fundraiser to raise funds: a rooftop concert at Scottsdale Fashion Square mall.

From 6:30 to 10 p.m. on Oct. 29, guests can venture to the top level of the Fashion Square parking structure for Raise the Rooftop, featuring live music, casino tables, food and more.

General admission passes at the cost of $200 each will include a variety of food and cocktail tastings from local restaurants and beverage vendors and feature live entertainment with AZ Dueling Pianos and rising country star Austin Burke. There will also be casino tables with blackjack, roulette, and craps as well as raffles and other ways to support the youth development organization, according to a press release.

“Our guests can park in the lower level and take the elevator up to find the space overlooking Camelback Mountain transformed into an intimate nightclub concert venue, complete with a high-end VIP experience for sponsors and their guests,” said Lyric Naquin, BGCS chief development officer. “We hope that all who attend will have a night to remember and the great feeling of knowing they have helped kids right here in our community.”  

Raise the Rooftop is the reimagined annual BGCS fall outdoor food and beverage tasting event called Live & Local.

“It was time to shake things up a bit, and we wanted to put a larger focus on our entertainment and the main stage where we could highlight our impact on youth and teens in the community,” said Naquin. “Everyone loved the variety of the tastes and sips offered by local restaurants, so we wanted to keep that aspect with our continued partnership with the Arizona Restaurant Association.”

The headliner, singer/songwriter Austin Burke, a fifth-generation native of Scottsdale, recently released his EP “Changed Everything.” He has opened for high-profile artists including Dierks Bentley and Vince Gill and has performed at Country Thunder and other well-known country music festivals.
