Sanctuary Receives 2013 ‘Stars of the Industry’ Award

Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain, the country’s premier luxury resort, was recognized by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA) with a 2013 “Stars of the Industry” award during its Summer Summit in Denver, Colo. Sanctuary’s 2012 “Escape for GOOD” fundraiser, which raised $10 million benefiting Athletes for Hope and UGIVE, two nonprofits dedicated to inspiring and enabling voluntary service nationwide, was honored in the “Special Events, One-Time Only, Small-Property” category.

The invitation-only weekend event at Sanctuary, limited to 75 couples at a minimum donation of $50,000 each, offered once-in-a-lifetime experiences with sports industry celebrities such as Andre Agassi, Muhammad Ali, Cris Collinsworth, Mia Hamm, Tony Hawk, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Alonzo Mourning, Anthony Muñoz, Paul O’Neill and Annika Sorenstam. Activities included tennis with Andre Agassi on Sanctuary’s championship tennis courts, a morning run through Paradise Valley with track and field star Jackie Joyner-Kersee, and a cook-off with culinary masters Todd English, Sanctuary’s own Executive Chef Beau MacMillan, and Phoenix’s Mark Tarbell. The weekend concluded with an extravagant private dinner for Muhammad Ali’s 70th birthday.

Sanctuary’s scenic and tranquil atmosphere provided a perfect backdrop for discussions on social issues and education for America’s youth. The weekend sparked conversations that forged new partnerships between Google and the Gates Foundation, Andre Agassi and Unicef, as well as a new Sports for Development program in South Africa and Ethiopia.

JAMIE LOVES: March 2012

JAMIE Loves in March…

Spring!

I am so excited that spring is here! One of my favorite things about March is Spring Break. Unfortunately, I am always super busy with work in March and therefore cannot go anywhere too far. Lucky for me, I live in one of the best cities, full of activities, amazing hotels, spas, restaurants, shopping and more. So this month I will be taking a “staycation” where I will relax here in Scottsdale. I will be staying at one of my favorite hotels, golfing at one of my favorite courses, and eating at one of my favorite restaurants.

The Royal Palms

JAMIE LOVES: March 2012There are so many amazing resorts from which to choose; this month I will be staying at The Royal Palms. For one, I love the location; it’s right on the base of Camelback Mountain, so the views are breathtaking. Secondly, I love the intimate setting of the resort; you feel at home here. And lastly, I cannot deny a great spa! A massage and facial is just what I need on my “staycation.”

Desert Botanical Garden

JAMIE LOVES: March 2012One of my favorite places to visit in Arizona is the Desert Botanical Garden, and springtime is the best time to visit the gardens — the wild flowers are blooming, and the cacti are so green! In collaboration with Ballet Arizona, the Desert Botanical Gardens brings Topia. The dancers perform with the backdrop of the red rocks as the sun sets. This event goes from March 2-March 26th, so get your tickets now on the Desert Botanical Garden website.

Tarbell’s

JAMIE LOVES: March 2012There are so many talented chefs living in Arizona; one of my favorites is Mark Tarbell and his restaurant Tarbell’s. I love the atmosphere and the people there. Not to mention, the food is super tasty; one of my personal favorite dishes is the grilled organic salmon. This plate with a good glass of wine and great company, there is no better way to enjoy my “staycation.”

Love,
Jamie
