More than 350 guests attended the Feb. 24 Academy Awards viewing party at the JW Marriott Camelback Inn, enjoying the Red Carpet Reception, dinner and Rolf’s Global Experience fashion show – all while raising $240,000 to benefit the Arthritis Foundation.

 

The money will help serve the 1.2 million Arizonans living with arthritis, including 6,000 children. Of the money raised, $51,000 will support Camp Cruz, a camp for children ages 7 to 17 with arthritis or a related disease.

 

This year’s honorees were orthopedic surgeon Dr. Anthony Hedley; Krista Horn, adult honoree; and 4-year-old Rowan Balma, youth honoree. JoAnn Holland, Wells Fargo vice president of community relations, chaired the event. Wells Fargo was the premier sponsor.
