Fresh, floral, Spring… an irresistible combination of a beautiful introduction to Spring and a grateful community that supports iconic Make-A-Wish.    A beautiful splendor of radiant floral arrangements, gowns and decor abound at the JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn for the picturesque 2019 “Wishes in Bloom” Gala theme. An amazing 100 percent of the dollars raised will be used to grant wishes to local children and their families.   

TrustBank was honored to be a part of this beautiful elegant philanthropic event.  Their corporate donor table of twelve included Sandra Hudson, President and CEO of Wealth Management Arizona, and Phil Hotchkiss, Chief Wealth Strategist.  TrustBank hosted charitable community leaders Toby Block of Arizona Strategies and husband Kelly Block of Intel, Terra Schaad with non-profit Hunkapi and husband Robb Chavary of Tesla and Kim Bankofier of Gold Brand and Company with husband Todd Bankofier of AudioEye.  

“We are extremely proud to support Make-A-Wish.  This is one of Arizona’s most notable local charitable efforts, bringing together our philanthropic corporate community as well as the upper echelon of charitable donors to celebrate the best of giving-back to a dynamic cause, so precious to many families.” States Sandra Hudson, President and CEO Wealth Management Arizona. 

This VIP reception captured the amazing Arizona sunset evening, on the patio at Camelback Inn.  Guests mingled until the doors opened to the Ballroom, where donors delighted in the fresh floral décor, also drenched in floral color wash of lighting to set the ambiance for a memorable evening of donor excitement and appreciation.  

Both live and silent auction items were grandiose!  Trips to China, a private jet with a “progressive” travel excursion – donors outbidding each other.  Famed novelist, Clive Cussler, offered to write in a central character for his latest book.  Bob Parson’s, Arizona’s well known Go-Daddy founder Billionaire, was highest bidder as a gift for his wife Renee.  The Parson’s also pledged $1Million donation again this year, in a sea of many generous gifts for local Arizona Make-A Wish.
