The 2nd Annual “Taste at the Bridge” fundraiser, hosted by the Friends of the Tonto Natural Bridge State Park, combined great weather, excellent food, drinks, auctions, bon fires and a full moon. Approximately 300 attendees were treated to beer sampling from THAT Brewery, wine tasting from The Beverage Place, a sit down dinner catered by The Burnt Biscuit Bunch. Door prizes, silent and live auction items competed with bonfires as the fall evening as guests awaited the full moon.
