(My husband and I were honored to be a part of this last year…and even won Top Couple for our fundraising efforts. Great organization to support! CF is a crappy disease and I hope a cure will be found soon.)
AZ’s FINEST Couples Chosen for 2009
After an exhaustive search across the Valley, ten couples have been chosen to participate in the 2009 AZ’s FINEST Couples program from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The couples chosen are:
Joseph Christ and Lisa-Bailey Christ
Tom and Andrea Evans
Luke and Najla Kayyem
Adam and Mindy Lang
Jay and Stefanie Layton
Ryan and Carrie Lehrman
William and Kim Magyar
Kelly and Cindy Mero
Gregory and Johanne Rossi
Ryan and Michelle Schultz
The AZ’s FINEST Couples program is designed to spotlight Arizona’s most influential trendsetters, honoring their professional and charitable accomplishments. Each couple was nominated by a member of their community, completed an application and then underwent an interview process. These nine couples best exemplify philanthropic qualities and overall, have excelled in the community.
Last year’s Couples raised over $60,000 for the Foundation through the AZ’S FINEST Couples event. As part of the honor, each couple has agreed to raise more than $5,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The Couple who raises the most dollars during the Campaign will receive the “Top Fundraiser Award”.
The couples will be honored at a dinner on November 6th, 2009 at the Sheraton Hotel in Downtown Phoenix.
