What a perfect way to kick off the holiday season! This year’s 26th annual Phoenix Holiday Luncheon had it all; an inspirational story from Phoenix youth, Rae, beautiful music performed by the Phoenix Community Choir, special guest Meaghan Smith and a festive three-course lunch. The Phoenix Holiday Luncheon is a way to celebrate the joy and hope of the season with friends, family, colleagues and clients. From its inception with a small group of caring, community members to a 900 strong guest list, the Luncheon embodies the joy and hope of the season.
The event plays a significant role in Phoenix’s fundraising efforts upon which our programs and services depend. Funds raised ensure the resources required for positive change remain available to the young people, families and communities who come to Phoenix for support.
This year’s event not only produced many lasting memories, it also raised the most funds in its 26-year history-$148,000! The Phoenix Holiday Luncheon’s success is only realized with the support of like-minded community members like you. Thank you so much!
Phoenix Youth Programs recognizes this is all made possible due to our dynamic and passionate volunteer organizing committee, led by co-chairs David Bluteau and Kim Machum. To all members, Karen Bezanson, Krista Dempsey, Shawn Hirtle, Wendy MacGregor, Pearleen Mofford, Lisa Rounsefell, Karen Wentzell, Joanna Zed, David Bluteau and Kim Machum, we are forever grateful for the time, energy and commitment you provided. You worked tirelessly throughout the year to ensure that no detail was overlooked and that Phoenix reached new fundraising heights, so we can support those who come to Phoenix!
