Get a sneak peek - Healing Through the Eyes of a Child is next week

Healing Through the Eyes of a Child is next Thursday, October 28. Do you have your tickets? You don’t want to miss this one. We can’t wait to reconnect with our partners, coalition members, sponsors, and donors to celebrate the 2021 honorees, Will Humble and Silvana Salcido Esparza.

Join us to raise awareness and funds to support the work we do – advocating for the well-being of Arizona children and families. The evening reception will be outdoors with entertainment from the Arizona School of the Arts’ Guitar Ensemble and a silent auction featuring one-of-a-kind art from the students at Solano Elementary School at the University Club of Phoenix. We will follow CDC guidelines and require guests to wear masks when indoors, regardless of vaccination status.

Time is running out. If you don’t have tickets, get them now and get a sneak peek of our auction items.

See you next week!
