Old Hollywood glamour created an elegant evening for A Night in Casablanca, Child Crisis Arizona’s annual fundraising gala. The March 2 event at the Sheraton Grand Phoenix drew 450 guests, who helped raise more than $600,000 for the organization’s early education, prevention and intervention programs to help break the cycle of child abuse and neglect.
In addition to a live auction, Bobby D conducted the paddle raise, focused on funding more than 40 low-income children ages 1 to 5 with a year of high quality early education. Bob Bové of Jiffy Lube and Roger Hill and Yvonne Debeauville kicked it off by providing funding for a classroom of eight children.
Child Crisis Arizona Board of Directors members Cindy Coffman and Noelle Miller co-chaired the evening. Arrowhead Cadillac, Isaac Jewelers, Titan Solar, Jiffy Lube and David Lueth were the presenting sponsors
