WineFest Pick ‘n’ Pull Donations

Wait, you can donate wine? Yes! Our Pick ‘n’ Pull fundraiser at Sharlot’s WineFest lets people pick a “mystery” wine for $20 a chance…and directly benefits the Museum. If you’d like to donate wine to this fun mini-fundraiser, please contact Shirley Swift at (928) 277-2035 or

Sharlot’s WineFest & Wyatt Earp Performance Sell Out

Museum staff has been thrilled at the response to two of our upcoming events, Sharlot’s WineFest (August 21) and “Wyatt Earp: A Life on the Frontier” (August 7). Both events sold out with amazing speed—when an extra block of tickets to WineFest was released, it sold out in just two and a half hours! We are thrilled at this enthusiastic engagement from our community. Proceeds from both events benefit the Museum and its mission.

New Staff Member: Tess Coria

Tess recently joined the Museum team, and will be filling the role of Finance Manager as Terry Berrett transitions into retirement. We’ll let her introduce herself:

“Hello! My name is Tess Coria. I recently transferred from the Arizona Department of Education to Sharlot Hall/Prescott Historical as the new Finance Manager. I will have big Terry Berrett shoes to fill, but I like a challenge. 

“After living in Phoenix for 30 years, I took a leap and relocated to Prescott Valley in May 2020. This has been a beautiful place to call home over the last year and I look forward to many more years. Thank you for having me on your team.”
