Our gracious hosts (and Sustaining Members of LFA), were SCF Arizona, a workers' compensation insurance company who since being founded in 1925 now covers more than 25,000 Arizona businesses and their half-million employees. The positive impact they have on job creation, their effort to spend well over half of their budget using local sources and the ultimate recirculation of local dollars they support makes SCF Arizona a shining example of a local business truly supporting its local community. It was a packed house for our March Mixer and we even had record attendance for our 30-minute New Member Orientation with LFA Director, Kimber Lanning! Members were treated to catering from City Market Deli (soon to be in SCF Arizona's cafe on-site), 'bitty-bundt cakes donated from The Drunken Bundt Cakery Company, plus plenty of local wine selections. Another highlight included our check presentation with Wist and Free Arts of Arizona. For every LFA member that uses Wist as their office supplier, Wist awards LFA with a percentage rebate from those sales that are then donated to an LFA non-profit. This month, and on Arizona Gives Day to boot, Free Arts of Arizona was the lucky recipient!
A special thanks to Randy Gerdes, Phyllis Senseman, Tod Dennis, Virginia Hosford, Bruce Trethewy and the whole team at SCF Arizona for hosting us, and to our attendees and members who graciously donated wonderful door prizes!
