Still looking for a Christmas tree? Or, are you looking for a way to give back this season? At The Holiday Tree Auction on Saturday, December 15 at the Scottsdale Quarter, you can do both.
Presented by Scottsdale Quarter and Steve LeVine Entertainment & Public Relations (SL), The Holiday Tree Auction will present trees, decorated by Valley shops, restaurants, brands and professional sports teams. The trees will be decked out with the latest merchandise, exclusive offers and gift cards for a good cause — the Leadership Children’s Foundation (TCLCF), a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping children.

Ring in the New Year in ’20s fashion and glamour. With 2012 regarded the year of “The Great Gatsby” and embraced by many designers in recent collections, you can expect the fashion trend to extend into 2013, as Baz Luhrmann’s higly anticipated film is expected to hit the theaters in May. So, it’s only fitting that W Scottsdale’s New Year’s Eve event, the Great Gatsby New Year’s Eve party on December 31st, will capture the spirit and energy of the roaring Twenties as captured in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic American novel.
The Great Gatsby experience will begin upon arrival at W Scottsdale, where you’ll find vintage rides and the hotel’s ornate front gate adorned with colorful flowers before entering the hotel’s Living Room ― which will be decked out in true Gatsby style with white textiles, golden candelabras and lush white floral arrangements. As for live entertainment, Crooner Scott Keo will serenade arriving partygoers with classic ’20s tunes.
You’ll then have the chance to ascend the hotel’s dramatic stairway, decorated with feathers and glimmering strands of pearls, before stepping foot onto the W Scottsdale WET deck ― complete with sparkling cabanas, opulent décor and a striking backdrop depicting iconic cover artwork of “The Great Gatsby.”
In addition to individual tickets to the celebration, W Scottsdale will also offer a complete Great Gatsby hotel package.
