29th Annual Poinsettia Tea

Duet: Partners in Health & Aging raises $139K at annual fundraiser

More than 430 guests attended the 29th Annual Poinsettia Tea at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale at Gainey Ranch. The afternoon affair raised $130,770 to benefit Duet: Partners in Health & Aging and its mission to promote health and well-being through vitally needed, free-of-charge services to homebound adults, family caregivers, faith communities and grandfamilies.

Guests enjoyed the sounds of The Shannon Wallace Quartet featuring Charles Lewis. Destry Jetton, Arizona Midday host, served as the emcee. Attendees heeded the Call to Compassion by generously giving $83,358 in donations on the spot.

The Dosia Carlson “KARED About” Award was presented to Clare Goldsberry, who has been a Duet volunteer and supporter for more than 30 years. A presenter and writer, she has inspired audiences throughout the Valley to volunteer, donate or ask for help. She is a member of Duet’s Vision Society, Legacy Circle and Board of Directors.
