Assistance LeagueÂ® of Phoenix will hold its 52nd Annual Celebration of Caring Gala, â€œBig Dreams & Blueprintsâ€ on March 10, 2023, from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Chateau Luxe, located at 1175 E. Lone Cactus Dr. in Phoenix.
The evening will raise funds to benefit Phoenix-area children in need. Operation School BellÂ®, the nonprofitâ€™s signature program, provides school uniforms, shoes and other necessary items for thousands of children living in poverty. Other programs include providing basic need items for newborns born into poverty, providing teddy bears for children to hold as a calming and security aid during a crisis and providing books and book sets to K-8 schools with high rates of poverty and local social service agencies.
This yearâ€™s honoree is Jim Swanson, President, and CEO of Kitchell Corporation. The employee-owned enterprise is focused on charitable endeavors in the areas of education, pediatric healthcare and social services; helping dozens of organizations in communities where they have operations. Swanson, along with the rest of Kitchell leadership, encourages community service, caring, and helping neighbors in times of need.
Assistance League of Phoenix Vice Chair Susan Frank took on the role of Event Chairman, organizing and developing the vision for an evening of entertainment, auction, networking and philanthropy for professionals and businesses from across the Valley. All proceeds from the event will be used to improve the lives of children in need in our community.
