Tickets are now available for the 3rd Annual Weekend Jetaway presented by AXA Advisors Southwest, Aero Jet Services and Prisma, which will take place on Saturday, November 1, 2014 from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m., and will feature music, culinary creations from leading Valley chefs, cocktails, surprise “elevated” entertainers and casino games set in a private jet hangar within the Scottsdale Airport. During the event, guests will take part in a casino-style dice game, with several lucky winners taking home a multitude of lux prizes, including the grand prize – a luxurious all-inclusive, first-class vacation on a private jet for four. Hosted by celebrated PGA golf star Tom Lehman, tickets are $100/person and available now at www.weekendjetaway.org.
Among the popular restaurants and beverage partners sampling scrumptious items from their Fall and Winter menus at the event are: Alliance Beverage, Proof Canteen at the Four Seasons Scottsdale Resort Troon North, Talavera at the Four Seasons Scottsdale Resort Troon North, Sassi, SOL Cocina, The Yacht Club, Tom’s Thumb Marketplace, The Mission and The Melting Pot. A silent auction including resort, spa, golf, dining and vacation packages will also take place, with proceeds from the entire evening benefiting Elevate Phoenix.
“Elevate Phoenix is a unique and often life-changing program for Arizona youth that provides in-school teaching; after-school mentoring/tutoring; career instruction/ post-secondary preparation; character, life skills and peer leadership development; community service; adventure activities; and reading/literacy improvement within urban public schools,” says Scottsdale resident Lehman, who also serves on the Elevate Phoenix board of directors.
AXA Advisors Southwest, Aero Jet Services, Jet Set Magazine and Prisma are serving as the presenting and title sponsors of the event. Additional current sponsors include Phocus Financial and Alliance Beverage Distribution Company. Limited sponsorship packages starting at $500 are still available at weekendjetaway.org.
“In 2012, AXA Advisors Southwest dreamt up this special event as our way to give back to this great community,” says Dillan Micus, executive vice president of AXA Advisors Southwest. “Our team donated its time, money and more – and with the help of amazing partners, sponsors and party-goers, we were able to gross more than $130,000 our first two years. We welcome the community to come out for the best party of the fall to help us double this number!”
This is a 21 and over event.
