Non-profit EVCT will be there at Tour de Scottsdale, all to help the kids and their futures

Gary Boenzi can’t wait for Tour de Scottsdale.

He’s part of the nonprofit East Valley Children’s Theatre and is looking forward to raising money for it.

“I’ve worked very hard preparing for the Tour,” he said. “It’s not something you simply do. It takes preparation.”

So, he’s taken time to prepare, not just for himself but for EVCT and the Mountain Bridge Cycling group that will be there helping. 

He’ll also be helping East Valley Children’s Theatre raise money. He’s a volunteer there. You can visit ( for more information to donate or join in on the ride.

For 27 years, East Valley Children’s Theatre has provided a safe environment for children to gain self-esteem, explore creative outlets and grow and mature into community-minded young adults.

“I'm very excited and can't wait for the Tour de Scottsdale,” he said. “I would be grateful for your support!  Thousands of cyclists will put themselves to the test on this challenging route.”

He’s used to challenging routes, given a few months ago he rode in El Tour de Tucson, where he found out about Tour de Scottsdale and thought it would be a perfect opportunity to help raise money and ride.

“I ride about three times per week, aiming for at least 75 miles,” he said.

It’s all in hope of helping the kids at EVCT, where the “focus is to prepare children for their performances,” he said. “As this is done, the kids also prepare for their future lives as adults.  As the saying goes, ‘If you’re not early, you are late!’

“As I prepare for TDS, I’m thinking of all the kids that passed through EVCT, including my grandson Josh. … Thank you for your support of East Valley Children's Theatre. Your gift truly makes a difference. Thank you for giving and inspiring others with your generosity.”
