If ever there was a day for sitting on a sun-drenched patio to witness the extreme athleticism of the top riders and horses in the world as they competed in an international Grand Prix, it was on Sunday, May 27 at Thunderbird Show Park. While sipping on wine or craft beer, munching on a vast variety of hors d'oeuvres and digging into sinfully delicious desserts, the more than 200 VIP guests oohed, aahed and gasped throughout the long, languid afternoon.
This was the 13th Annual Grand Prix Gala, the Foundation's premiere fundraising event. Raising more than $60,000, net proceeds will go to help support the Food For thought Campaign. Thank you to our community partners including:

The 1st Annual IDEA Summit was an astonishing success. Providing an unprecedented opportunity for young people to shine, the IDEA Summit was where thousands of students, hundreds of educators and dozens of community members came together to witness young entrepreneurs and socialpreneurs in ACTION. This was also where original ideas and dynamic designs were displayed at the Design Challenges. The IDEA Summit saw youngsters pushing the envelope of their imaginations and thrusting themselves out of their comfort zones into places where original ideas and dynamic designs came fast and furious. This was where we saw the future in the making. This was where we recognized the next generation and applauded their genius. Thanks to our sponsors, students who were tops in their presentations to a group of IDEA Mentors received scholarships of $2000 and $1000. Sponsors: VWR Capital Envision Financial Darnell & Co.
