SPROUTS FOUNDATION: AUTISM SPEAKS
PUSH For Love proudly supported the Arizona Autism Speaks WALK. For more than a decade, Autism Speaks and the Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center (SARRC) have partnered to produce Arizona’s largest autism awareness walk.
As an event that unites more 20,000 participants each year, planning for the walk is a year-round activity that brings together dozens of committee members and community volunteers. For the second year, PUSH For Love has been proud to lend a hand with this worthwhile cause.
“Our Brand Ambassadors are always committed to doing a great job while on site at an event activation, but what made this event so special is that they had a chance to interact with families and individuals affected by autism and help ensure that they had a wonderful time at the kickoff party,” explains chief executive officer Jonathan Sacks.
The Walk’s kickoff party was hosted by the Hotel Valley Ho and united 125 guests, including Matt Bloomfield, a young man with autism who shared his personal story, earning a standing ovation from everyone in attendance.
“This year’s kickoff event was a real win, thanks to PUSH For Love,” says SARRC’s walk consultant Lyndsey Waugh. “They helped us with fun, interactive activity stations that sparked teams to think creatively about fundraising and encouraged networking amongst our event guests. We’re confident that this event’s success will help with increased walk participation, fundraising and event attendance.”
This year’s walk was Sunday, Oct. 23 at Tempe Beach Park.
SUNSHINE ACRES CHILDREN'S HOME
The 2015 PUSH For Love Holiday Soiree was an overwhelming success, raising thousands of dollars for Sunshine Acres Children’s Home. To raise money for Sunshine Acres, PUSH For Love hosted their first annual Holiday Soiree. Funds were raised through the sale of raffle tickets, a silent auction, and a variety of casino style games . 40+ sponsors were invaluable in helping PUSH For Love make a substantial donation to the children’s home. These sponsors included; OHSO Brewery, Kandy Pens, Tito’s Vodka, Jetset Magazine, Melany’s Guydlines and many more. The Holiday Soiree took place on December 4th, 2015 at a beautiful estate on Camelback Mountain in Phoenix, AZ overlooking the city. Guests were treated to live music from Whiskey Tango, complimentary food and drinks at the poolside patio bar, and casino games provided by Dream Dealers. PUSH For Love would like to thank all of our very generous sponsors for their support in making our very first event an enormous success. We would also like to thank all those who attended and donated to the cause. The Holiday Soiree will now be an annual tradition and each year a worthy cause will benefit.
