Take a Hike for BAG IT 2011
The 8th Annual Take a Hike for BAG IT held Sunday, November 13 was a great success! Thanks to all who braved the rain and turned out for the biggest attendance to date! Over 300 people filled the Grand Ballroom at Loews Ventana Canyon Resort with many participating in a multi-level hike or meditation walk before the brunch.
A silent auction and raffle featured many unusual and one-of-a-kind items and there were many smiles as attendees walked away with fabulous treasures. A live auction made its first appearance and will definitely be a repeat. A Miraval Resort stay and a San Diego Getaway for Two were highly-prized.
A stunningly creative slide show by Rocky LaRose, our photographer extraordinaire, was featured.
$90,000 was raised by the event….all will be used to provide BAG IT at no-charge to newly diagnosed cancer patients in Arizona.
Thanks to our 70+ volunteers and everyone from the Tucson community that made the day a huge success!
