East Valley-Phoenix Chapter
Our chapter has been picked to be the feature non-profit for the Gilbert Chamber for the Good program and will have an article in the Gilbert Republic in the next couple of weeks.
Attached is a copy of the Fraternal Order of the Eagles newsletter with a small blurb (page 7) on an upcoming event we are having with them on April 6. Our chapter is donating an AED to the Mesa Tri-City 3468 Aerie. In addition to donating the equipment, we will be providing AED/CPR demonstrations. We are also in talks with other FOE locations to discuss a partnership with the Eagles as they are very much in line with our mission given that one of their featured charities is the Max Baer Heart Fund.
SCAA’s East Valley-Phoenix chapter, in partnership with the Highland High Band Boosters, celebrated Heart Month by hosting a Big Band Night on February 21, 2014 at the Arizona Golf Resort.
