Desert Club

Desert Club, founded in 1946, is a non-profit women’s service organization providing scholastic scholarships to students living in the East Valley and community grants to non-profit organizations serving women and children. Currently Desert Club has 36 active members and 100 “life” and “sustaining” members. Since 1958, Desert Club has hosted the annual Christmas Idea House where over the course of three days events are held at one or more beautifully decorated luxury homes. All of the proceeds from these events go to scholarships and community programs. Over the past seventy years, Desert Club’s efforts have raised more than two million dollars.

Desert Club is always looking for enthusiastic, talented, hard working women to join our group. If you would like to meet new friends and contribute your time and talents to the community please contact Mary Jane Eckert at christmasideahouse@hotmail.com.

2018 Christmas Idea House

The theme for the 2018 Christmas Idea House is “A Family Christmas.” This year’s Christmas Idea House promises to be a “destination to remember” for visitors and shoppers alike who crave something truly unique for the holidays, but before we decorate, we need a house.  Do you or do you know of someone who would want to showcase your home?  Hosting the Christmas Idea House is IDEAL for custom home builders, interior decorators and more!  Please contact us with any ideas you may have!
