AZASTA Celebrates the Holidays 2017

On December 22, 2017, the Arizona ASTA Chapter met at a Maggiano’s in Scottsdale for this year’s “sold out” lunch time Holiday Party. All who attended enjoyed the company, the food and the festivities. This year, we had the benefit of a combo band that provided live seasonal entertainment during the event. We thank the board for their effort bringing this party to fruition. We especially appreciate the generosity of our friend and Allied Chair Al Balizado, of Best Western for once again, being a sponsor along with the support of Brandon Oscarson of Ama RiverCruises. This year we collected cash donations for a local food bank and everyone that brought a gift for the white elephant gift exchange experienced a new version of swapping gifts to a story about Frosty the Snowman. Below you will find some photos.
