Arizona Women's Partnership Wine, WoMEN & Jazz

By Myra Richman

The Arizona Women's Partnership, an all volunteer philanthropic non-profit, held its 9th annual Wine, WoMEN & Jazz FUNdraising event on Saturday, April 17th 2010 at the Arizona Culinary Institute Scottsdale.
The words 'fun' and 'abundance' come to mind.  
Arizona Culinary Institute Chefs prepared an amazing array of sumptuous hors d’oeuvres and desserts that were creatively displayed and available in various kitchens throughout the Institute.  Fine wines were selected to complement the vast selection of food offerings, as guests wandered from room to room.  
Lucky guests could savor the food and the jazz, which was performed during the entire event by Valley favorites...Margo Reed, Delphine Cortez and Blaise Lantana, accompanied by the Joel Robin Trio.  This was a FUNdraiser to end all fundraisers.
“We were pleased to have hosted this fine event once again, since it’s a great opportunity for all involved,” notes Chef Robert Wilson, Arizona Culinary Institute - president & co-founder.
All proceeds generated from this event will benefit the selected charities of the Arizona Women’s Partnership, Inc. that assist underserved women and children at risk here in Arizona---determined by the 2010 Grants Selection Committee:  Pamela Cullison (chair), Paula Cullison, Dawn Melvin, Elaine Birks-Mitchell, Lori Walk, Neva Jorgenson, Monica Ryden, Ralph and Roxanne Martin, Natalie Sayer, Teresa Sinatra, Irma Jurado, Mary Steenhoek and Jane Beyer.
