25 Men Who Think They Can Cook
Three local chef judges put 25 Valley celebrities to the test at 25 Men Who Think They Can Cook. The professional chef judges will be voting for the one man who can actually cook in each category: Best Entrée, Best Appetizer/Soup, Best Salad and Best Dessert. Your vote will determine The People’s Choice Award. A live auction, DJ and cash bar will round out the evening.
Notable celebrity chefs include:
Michael Bankston (former Arizona Cardinal)
Mike Butcher (Diamondbacks pitching coach)
Grumpy (Bikers Against Child Abuse)
Mark Victor Hansen (Co-creater “Chicken Soup for the Soul” book series)
Patrick Hickey (Peoria Ford)
Donovan McNabb (Former NFL Quarterback)
Bill Montgomery (AZ Supreme Court Justice)
Sheriff Paul Penzone (Maricopa County Supreme Court)
Professional Chef Judges are Tina Bennett, Tiffany Nagel and Patrick Riegel.
Funds raised will directly support the programs and services of Childhelp in Arizona. Founded in 1959 by Sara O’Meara and Yvonne Fedderson, Childhelp is one of the largest and oldest non-profit organizations dedicated to the intervention, treatment and prevention of child abuse and neglect.
Q4 Giving Circle & 5 Year Anniversary Celebration
Please join us in celebrating our 5 Year Anniversary followed by our Q4 giving circle in Ahwatukee!
We are an informal group of women who love to GIVE. The Valley of the Sun chapter and its events are run by an Executive Committee of big-hearted volunteers along with the support of very generous sponsors. Our members make their donations directly to the local charities we select resulting in 100% of all donations going directly to those organizations. The goal of our chapter is to support the wonderful work our local non-profits do in funds, exposure and awareness in a minimal amount of time.
A Big Impact
100+ women x $100 = $10,000+ for a local charity in 1 hour – 4 times per year (quarterly). We currently have three (3) groups meeting throughout the Phoenix metro area – Ahwatukee, Scottsdale and East Valley. Our members come from all over the Phoenix metro area to participate. Our goal as a chapter is to donate $500,000 in five (5) years to local nonprofits.

The Magic and Illusions of Eric Giliam
Magician Eric Giliam returns to the Chandler Center for the Arts along with his beautiful assistant to perform a dazzling spectacle of magic, illusions, sleight of hand, and special effects in his high energy show. Can you say jaw-dropping!
The former World Magic Champion started performing at age twelve and has since toured Europe, been a guest performer on several prime time TV shows, and has over a thousand performances under his belt.
Born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska, the 28 year old entertainer will feature a winter scene in one of his magic acts that will take you back to his hometown. He also, for the first time in a public show, will perform his new grand illusion he has been working on with his female assistant.
The all ages presentation includes magic routines not seen in any other show as well as a good dose of comedy and crowd interaction. Eric reveals to the audience that not everything seen can be explained!
