Fandango! Arizona was the perfect ending to Arizona’s 100th Statehood Day. At 5:30pm people started arriving, right on time, anxiously waiting to get into the cocktail reception. The room filled up quickly, all you could see and hear were the beautiful sounds of the live music playing, the chatter from everyone mingling and the constant flashes of photography.
The silent auction also launched when the cocktail reception began. Beautiful pieces of art, jewelry and more (all from Arizona of course) were open for bids!
At 7pm the celebration and dinner started. The North Ballroom of the Phoenix Convention Center transformed into the Grand Canyon, creating a perfect setting for the evening.
Arizona stars filled the room and were dressed in everything imaginable; from ball gowns, to cocktail dresses with cowgirl boots, to tuxedos and bola ties! Here are a few stars that joined us in the celebrations surrounding Arizona’s 100 Years of Statehood:
Rex Allen, Jr. – Hugh Downs – Robin Sewell – Harvey MacKay
The Honorable Sandra Day O’Connor – Dave Sitton – The Phoenix Symphony
Esteban – Marshall Trimble – The Phoenix Children’s Chorus – Wayne Newton
