Celebrating the close of another year of dedicated service to the Heard Museum stemming back for most of six decades, members of the Heard Museum Guild announced May 6 their latest annual donation to the museum totaling $110,000.
The donation was made to museum Interim Director John Bulla at the group’s annual awards lunch at Marriott’s Camelback Inn and Resort in Paradise Valley.
In addition, Guild members announced that they logged 61,508 volunteer hours at the Heard during 2014-15, among the most ever in a single season. Doing a bit of math, these hours are approximately equal to the annual work of 30 full-time employees each putting in 40 hours a week.
The Guild also presented its Community Partner Award to Robert Doyle, owner of Phoenix-based Canyon Records. The award was made in recognition of Doyle’s many years of contributions to the success of the Guild’s Indian Fair & Market held annually at the Heard, as well as many other museum-related activities and programs.
