While we couldn’t nab Sister Jean for our party, we had plenty of avid basketball fans at our 5th annual March Madness event this year. Three hundred clients and colleagues joined us to spend a fun, basketball-filled day at Combine Performance to kick off the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.
This marked our fourth year celebrating March Madness at Combine Performance, formerly The Golf Tank, a full-service golf company that provides coaching, club fitting and building, fitness, nutrition, mindset and lifestyle. We also rounded up food trucks, including Boca Taco Truck, BuzzNBeez American Poutine, Cold Beer & Cheeseburgers, Frosted Frenzy, Sweet Magnolia and The Maine Lobster Lady for a remarkable spread of delicious lunch and snacks.
Throughout the event, we raffled off prizes, including $50 gift cards, tickets to Odysea Aquarium, tickets to the ballet and Biltmore Bank swag. Some folks even demonstrated their golfing prowess at Combine Performance’s golf simulator.
This fun, casual event was a great way to compare brackets, make professional connections and get to know each other in a laid-back environment. Thanks to everyone who participated!
Great sports teams and successful businesses have something in common — disciplined teamwork helps both rise to the top. Like the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, owning and operating a business has its triumphs and heartbreaks and takes incredible discipline. Thank you to all our clients for allowing us to be part of your teams.
Our Vice President and Client Relations Officer, Desirae Outcalt, has been working hard as a member of the Phoenix Suns Charities 88 organization and as the event chair for the organization’s annual Slam Dunk Street Party fundraiser – a progressive dinner that raises money for kids and families in need.
The Biltmore Bank of Arizona got into the action too this year – making a financial donation to support this great cause.
The Phoenix Suns Charities 88 Slam Dunk featured drinks, dinner, dancing and a silent auction on November 7 in downtown Phoenix at the US Airways Center. Auction items included memorabilia signed by Phoenix Suns players and much more. This fun event is so popular that it sold out!
Phoenix Suns Charities 88 was formed with the mission to enhance the lives of Arizona’s children and their families by actively creating and supporting programs in the areas of education, health, human services, the arts, rehabilitation and sports and recreation. Throughout the past 26 years, Phoenix Suns Charities has raised and gifted more than $16 million to charitable organizations in Arizona, with over $1 million granted annually.
Attendees dressed in “Suns Chic,” including comfortable footwear for dancing and working the court.
