NB|AZ to Host Taste of the Biltmore Oct. 3

National Bank of Arizona (NB|AZ) announced its seventh annual Taste of the Biltmore event, which is scheduled for Thursday, October 3 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the NB|AZ Biltmore Corporate Center. This highly anticipated kick-off to the Fall social season will bring the best of the Biltmore community together to enjoy unlimited food and wine tastes from more than 20 local restaurants.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the Act One Foundation (Act One), an organization that provides educational field trips to visual and performing arts centers for Arizona students. Act One provides transportation and resources to underserved public school children so that they can experience art and culture within their communities. In its inaugural year, Act One benefitted more than 20,000 K-12 public schoolchildren in Maricopa County.

“NB|AZ Taste of the Biltmore is the perfect way to bring the community together to enjoy delicious cuisine, while giving back to the community,” said Jathan Segur, senior vice president of sales and marketing for NB|AZ. “Each year the attendance grows allowing us to offer tremendous support to our designated beneficiary, and this year we are thrilled to be able to contribute to the Act One Foundation.”

“We are thrilled National Bank of Arizona has selected Act One as their partner in NB|AZ Taste of the Biltmore,” said Teniqua Broughton, executive director of the Act One Foundation. “Less than 50 percent of Arizona public schools provide integrated arts education in the curriculum due to budget constraints. Act One Foundation was created to address this need, and the collected funds from this event will help us serve these students.”

Participating restaurants include some of the Valley’s most recognized names: Central Bistro, Lon’s at the Hermosa Inn, Donovan’s Steak & Chop House, The Capital Grille, Season’s 52, True Food Kitchen, Zinburger Wine & Burger Bar, amongst many others.

Tickets are $35 online and at the door. To purchase tickets or to find out more about the event, including a full list of participating restaurants, please visit www.nbaztaste.com.

RESCUE AND MANE ATTRACTION SALON JOIN FORCES FOR 13TH ANNUAL BEAUTY TO THE RESCUE

Mane Attraction Salon has joined forces with RESCUE, a local nonprofit animal rescue organization, to host their 13th Annual Beauty to the RESCUE on March 3, 2013.

For a minimum donation ($30-$50 for haircuts, $10 for Deep Conditioning Masque, $20 for Blow Dry Style and $20 for Makeup Applications), anyone can partake in a day of personal pampering – all while raising funds to support RESCUE in its fight against pet euthanasia.

Beauty to the RESCUEWhile human participants are beautifying themselves, they can pamper their pooches with an on-site mobile dog groomer as well as look into their pet’s past or future with an on-site pet psychic. Guests will also enjoy food and beverages, along with kid-friendly activities and live entertainment by the hip local bands Elvis Before Noon and Del Rey.

Dr. Grey Stafford from the Wildlife World Zoo will also be attending with his dog Venti to discuss reward-based dog training.

Enjoy brunch at Central Bistro, located next door to Mane Attraction. They will be donating a portion of their Sunday brunch sales to benefit RESCUE. Other vendors will include Millie’s Caramels, pet artist Chela Mischke, pieces by The Bottle Artist, a local artist who repurposes recycled wine bottles into home décor, Carol Cotton Design, and much more.

“We have a special place in our hearts for the pets RESCUE helps,” says Beate Ong, who owns and operates Mane Attraction with husband and fellow stylist Kendal Ong. One of the Ong’s pooches, Einstein, was a healthy, house-trained one-year-old when Kendall and Beate adopted him from RESCUE. “Healthy animals are being euthanized because they are not adopted and placed in loving homes. The real beneficiaries of this event will be the huggable animals that are adopted at this outstanding and important event.”
