Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation’s WINGS Women’s Board presented A Breathtaking Holiday Evening on Thurs., Nov. 16 to fundraise for crucial hospital programs. The event raised nearly $50,000 through the purchase of limited-edition holiday wreaths, ornaments, tree tags and the donations of generous sponsors.
The WINGS Women’s Board members provide support to Phoenix Children’s Hospital through philanthropic and fundraising efforts. The evening fundraiser was hosted at Mercedes-Benz of Scottsdale, with speeches from Alice Bazlen, President of the WINGS Women’s Board, Cash Davis, a Phoenix Children’s patient, and Iris Feldman, the evening’s Event Chair. The event featured breathtaking wreaths created by ten designers of distinction and donations from 14 Valley benefactors.
“Seeing members of the design community use their talents as a force for good warms our hearts,” Bazlen said. “Even more importantly, it impacts the lives of the patients and families at Phoenix Children’s.”
Purchases from the designer wreaths and limited edition gold and silver ornaments benefitted the hospital’s pediatric neuroscience research program. Purchases of the gold, red or green tags from the Wishes Tree benefitted the hospital’s injury prevention department.
“Not only are these products incredible for the holidays, but they also allow us to raise crucial funds for two essential programs at Phoenix Children’s,” Feldman said.
