This year’s Holiday Party at the Hukilau Hawaiian Village was a resounding success! Over 80 members and guests enjoyed great food and drinks at a very picturesque venue and were treated to some awesome entertainment, some of it provided by our very own members!
We also made a significant donation to the City of Scottsdale Vista del Camino Food Bank, collecting $365 in cash, along with a large box of non-perishable food items. Thank you to everyone who made a donation and special thanks to Jeff Jenq who did an excellent job capturing highlights of the event in the slideshow below!
