Local Arizona Breast Cancer Survivors Go on Healing Vacations to Celebrate Life

Send Me On Vacation

Send Me On Vacation, Inc. (SMOV), a 501(c)(3) charitable organization is hosting its 2019 “Champions For Charity” Annual Gala on October 19, 2019, at Wingate Ranch in North Scottsdale, Arizona.

Champions are everyday people who rise up to meet challenges at an extraordinary degree.

It takes becoming a champion to fight breast cancer, it takes becoming a champion to help someone you love fight breast cancer and it takes becoming a champion to contribute time, energy and money to help breast cancer survivors take their lives back post-treatment.

Mark your calendar today and say “I champion survivors and I want to help.”

The presenting sponsor, Valley Sleep Center, generously committed to becoming the Top Sponsor of 2019, followed by Morgan Stanley, Grand Pacific Resorts, Axon, Travel To Go, VacationGuard, Backus Carranza Burden, Vincent Serafino Geary Waddell Jenevein, P.C. and Benchmark Commercial, LLC.

In-kind donations for the silent auction include vacations from Lifestyle Resort & Spa, Hawaii Timeshare Exchange, Aloha Vacation Club, Hilton Head Accommodations, Omni Resort Scottsdale and more.

This Italian chic event under the stars will feature dinner sponsored by the infamous chef Todd Williams, owner Put A Fork In It Catering – Phoenix, AZ.  Although known for his tantalizing cuisine, Chef Todd also has a philanthropic spirit as magnanimous as his cuisine. Elegant bubbles will be shared by Zonin Wines, a world-class Italian winery and a dedicated annual sponsor. Raise your glass to One Hope Wine, Tito’s Vodka, KimoSabe Mezcal, and Boozie all who have donated to support the cause.

The evening would not be complete without the Glen Paul Band rocking tunes throughout the night.

Tickets are $100 per person if purchased before September 19 and $150 per person thereafter. Tickets may be sold at the door. Registration page: https://sendmeonvacation.org/page/cfc2019/

Each ticket holder will be entered to win a one week, space available accommodation hosted by Grand Pacific Resorts, www.grandpacificresorts.com.

One hundred percent of the ticket price goes toward sending breast cancer survivors on healing vacations.
