When safety officials in Arizona make the ultimate sacrifice, the 100 Club of Arizona is there to help their families pick up the pieces by providing support when they need it most. In honor of the 100 Club of Arizona, Organ Stop Pizza will host an appreciation luncheon from 11:30 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Saturday, August 24. The event is open for the community to come out and learn more about this nonprofit and support its efforts.
At the Afternoon of Gratitude Musical Luncheon, locals can learn more about the 100 Club of Arizona from 100 Club staff concerning the history of the 45-year-old Arizona nonprofit, including ways to volunteer and get involved. There will also be a silent auction and 50/50 raffle with great prizes benefiting the 100 Club. And, of course, patrons can expect a delicious pizza buffet, salad, ice cream and music performed on the Mighty Wurlitzer organ.
“As an Arizona business, we wanted to host an event that would help the community connect with the 100 Club, an organization that does so much good for our safety officials and their families,” said Jack Barz, co-owner of Organ Stop Pizza. “This will be a patriotic, community-oriented luncheon that we hope raises awareness and much-appreciated funds for this amazing nonprofit.”
Tickets for the Afternoon of Gratitude Musical Luncheon are now on sale at OrganStopPizza.com for $15 for adults and $10 for kids ages 10 and under. Tickets will be sold for $20 at the door on Saturday, August 24 if the event is not sold out.
