The intimate Scottsdale Quarter venue lends itself to a decidedly fashionable and festive party, with the entertainment provided by Shining Star Band and a silent auction offering amazing deals on vacation getaways and gift certificates from Scottsdale Quarter’s eclectically rich mix of specialty shops. Plus it’s a party with a cause, as much of the proceeds benefit the educational efforts of the Arizona Lodging & Tourism Association.
“It is important for us to produce a culinary event where local foodies and business executives can be tourists in their own town, enjoying beautiful wines and sweet and savory samplings from our top resorts in a festive atmosphere,” said Arizona Lodging & Tourism Association President & CEO, Debbie Johnson. “We strive to raise awareness of the quality of life benefits that Arizona’s tourism industry provides its residents and it’s clear that the Valley’s finest chefs, combined with this venue, is a recipe for success.”
