This year's First Crush, our annual Tempe Community Action Agency gala, promises to be a fun-filled evening! If you haven't already noticed, this year's offers some new twists we think you'll enjoy: a new location at the Four Peaks Brewing Company Tasting Room on S. Wilson, a delicious menu that includes tastes from several local Tempe restauranteurs and live music by Walt Richardson, just to name a few. And, of course, we'll have one of the best silent auctions around.
But, at the end of the evening, First Crush is about supporting the most vulnerable members of our Tempe community. It's a chance to gather together with other like-minded folks to raise funds for TCAA programs that provide a vital safety net, including Tempe's only homeless shelter program, senior centers, meals for the homebound, a food pantry for the hungry, advocates for the unemployed and the working poor, and so much more.
Please join us on Friday, Oct. 23 as we support an organization that positively impacts the lives of one out of every six Tempe residents. I look forward to seeing you!
