First-ever Weekend Jetaway Benefits Valley nonprofts

AXA Advisors Southwest announces that sponsorships and tickets are now available for the first-ever Weekend Jetaway, which will take place on Friday, Nov. 9th. 2012, from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m., and will feature live music, culinary creations from leading Valley chefs, cocktails and casino games set in a private jet hangar within the Scottsdale Airpark.

During the event, guests will have the chance to win several fabulous prizes, including the grand prize – a luxurious all-inclusive, first-class trip on a private jet. A live and silent auction will also take place, with proceeds from the entire evening’s events benefitting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale and Pat Tillman Foundation, respectively.

“This event is a project of passion for our team,” said Dillan Micus, former Boys & Girls Club kid and now-executive vice president of AXA Advisors Southwest. “Each year, our entire team focuses a day of service with an inspirational community organization. Eager to effect change, we decided to roll up our sleeves and put together an annual gala event meant to raise critical funds for our nonprofit partners.”

Tickets are limited and available now starting at $100, with VIP tickets starting at $200.

“Events like these help to support more than 16,000 Valley kids involved with the clubs and their access to the arts; character and leadership development; education and career development; health and life skills; and sports, fitness and recreation,” said Steve Davidson, president/CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale.

In addition to AXA Advisors Southwest, Tiffany & Bosco P.A. and Great American Title Agency, Inc., who are serving as the presenting sponsors, additional current sponsors include Sapporo Scottsdale and Phocus Financial. Sponsorships range from $500 to $10,000 and are available at www.weekendjetaway.org.

“The Pat Tillman Foundation is proud to partner with AXA Advisors Southwest on this unique event, and we are honored to be selected to receive funds raised through its efforts,” said Marie Tillman, president of the Pat Tillman Foundation. “It is through the generosity of our donors that we are able to directly impact the lives of Tillman Military Scholars by providing the financial and educational resources needed to prevent undeserved debt, increase economic stability and establish a foundation for greater career opportunities.”
