Maricopa, AZ - Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino will proudly present the inaugural “Maricopa Loves Melonhead” pancake breakfast and quarter auction on August 12, 2012. The event begins at 10:00 am and lasts for two hours.
Tickets are on sale now for $10 and must be purchased online, through http://www.melonhead.org. Attendees may also pre-purchase bid paddles for the exciting quarter auction for $30, a savings of $10 over the cost on the day of the event.

This promises to be a truly memorable event.
The Melonhead Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization that supports the needs of children with cancer and their families.
The Foundation has a threefold purpose:
1. To provide financial aid to families of children 21 years of age or younger, with any diagnosis of cancer. We have awarded payment for housing, insurance, utilities, food, medical expenses and natural healing such as acupuncture, massage, and naturopaths when requested.
2. To provide a resource center for all patients experiencing cancer and searching for alternative practices.
3. The ultimate goal of The Foundation is to establish the first permanent Camp Wannahealyah (http://www.campwannahealyah.org) in Arizona. Our first two prototypes, held in 2002 in Mesa and Jerome, were greatly successful and proved our model to be viable.
