2011 Shriners “The Night of the Child”

The Night of the Child continues to move along with an exciting night planned for November 12th.

Destry Jetton, Channel 12, Arizona Midday will be back as our Emcee for the evening. She started her broadcasting career interning in the Channel 12 newsroom and made career stops in St. Joseph, Missouri, Waco, Texas and most recently in Tucson, Arizona. She’s done everything from being her own camera person and editor, to anchoring morning and evening newscasts, with some of her best reporting on children’s issues.
 Our special guest speaker will be Jerry Moyes, CEO and founder of Swift Transportation Company.  Founded in 1966, Swift Transportation is the nation’s largest truckload carrier and provides Best-in-Class transportation services to its customers, many of whom are the nation’s largest retailers.  Swift Transportation’s 16,000 award-winning professional truck drivers safely travel millions of miles each week delivering freight.  Along with Swift, Jerry and his family are actively engaged in organizations that include the West Valley Child Crisis Center, the Special Olympics, the Boys & Girls Clubs, and UMOM, as well as a private scholarship program.
In addition, Congressman Trent Franks will be back to welcome us in that evening.  Congressman Franks has been generous enough to write a letter on our behalf that is going to the top 100 CEO’s in Arizona. His letter is a wonderful letter and we can’t thank him enough for what he is doing to help the Night of the Child(see letter below).
Our night promises to be a busy and exciting night with dinner, raffles, and blitz’s, silent and live auction and a great video show on what we do to help the Shriner’s kids.  At this time, we are working on some other surprises to help make your night a wonderful evening to remember.
We are sold out on the $300.00 and Individual tables but do have tables at the $600.00 and $2500 level available. If interested in being on a waiting list for the $300 table, please email Mick Degn at mdegn40669@aol.com or 602-312-4554. All tables are seating for eight (8) with the exception of the $2500 tables which are for ten (10).
We’re a little over two (2) months away from the Benefit and we need help on donation items for the Benefit. We’re looking for trips, TV’s, Jewelry,etc.  Listed below is a wish list of items that we need. Any help is greatly appreciated.
