14th Annual Connections of Hope

Teen Lifeline gala celebrates Arizona’s youth

Teen Lifeline held its 14th annual gala on Oct. 12 at the Omni Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Montelucia. The 300-plus guests at Connections of Hope: An Evening to Celebrate Arizona’s Youth enjoyed live and silent auctions, dinner and musical entertainment from the teen group Lelea.

This year’s Alfredo J. Molina Community Lifeline Award was presented to David Alexander, president of CalJet of America LLC. The award is presented annually to a philanthropist who has made extraordinary contributions to the service of others in their lifetime, particularly to youth and the community. Lin Sue Cooney served as the evening’s emcee.

Molly and Bob Stockley chaired the event, under the leadership of Michelle Moorhead, executive director, and volunteers, raising more than $500,000. Funding from the event will continue to support and grow Teen Lifeline programs, including the Teen Lifeline Hotline, Life Skills Development and Community Education and Prevention Services.
