In addition, the event will also feature live entertainment via popular local cover band Retroactive as well as interactive photography with Clique Photo Station and David Blaine-style magicians mingling with the crowd.
A live and silent auction will also take place, with proceeds from the entire evening benefitting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale and Pat Tillman Foundation, respectively.
“Last year, AXA Advisors Southwest dreamed 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 $70,000 in 2012. We welcome the community to come out for the best party of the fall to help us double this number!”
AXA Advisors Southwest, Tiffany & Bosco P.A. and Great American Title Agency, Inc. are serving as the presenting sponsors. Additional current sponsors include Phocus Financial and Latest Craze. Limited sponsorship packages starting at $500 are still available at weekendjetaway.org.
This is a 21 and over event. Safe rides home will be made available at no cost to guests at the conclusion of the evening.
