2017 Annual Fundraiser

This year’s annual fundraising gala held on November 4th was a blast! At the unique Hangar One in Scottsdale Airpark, guests were treated to near perfect weather providing a great vibe felt by everyone in attendance. Congratulations to our honoree Wayne Stutzer who has served this organization as a board member, a supporter, and a friend for over 15 years.  Wayne’s radio partner through the years and very good friend, Michael Dixon, served as the evening’s emcee and host. This event was so successful in large part to the oversight of our event chair Marcy Strauss, and the generosity of our sponsors including ABLE Financial Group, G.G. Gems, Inc., Harold and Jean Grossman Foundation, Ike and Roz Friedman Foundation, Mrs. Irene Metz, Northern Trust, RBC Wealth Management, Jess & Sheila Schwartz Family Foundation, and The Joseph and May Winston Foundation.  A special thank you to our amazing planning committee, board, supporters, and guests for making it a wonderful evening! View more photos by clicking here.

A highlight of the evening was announcing the establishment of the Wayne Stutzer Teacher Training Program.  Amy Hummell, Gesher Disability Resources executive director, presented the award to Wayne, while event chair, Marcy Strauss joined for the the congratulations.
