With warm weather bringing nice crisp evenings to Tucson, we knew it would be a great idea to host our Membership Mixer in a beautiful outdoor setting. Many Hands Artist Cooperative is home to local Tucson artists and artisans working together to teach, collaborate, and sell their artwork. Owners Cindy and Lynne opened up their courtyard to Local First Arizona members and guests for a wonderful evening of networking over some munchies, refreshments, and live music. For many members and guests, it was their first time visiting Many Hands Courtyard. The evening Mixers are a great way to introduce members to the wide variety of businesses around town that make up our growing local economy.
Local First Arizona, Green Living Magazine, Mrs. Green’s World, and Laura Tanzer are hosting a Sustainability Series to discuss current topics of sustainability and to answer any questions the audience has. The series takes place the last Wednesday of every month from 5:30-7:30 PM, with each month discussing one of the five topics of Food, Water, Waste, Energy, and Toxins from experts around the community. RSVP here to attend this free event on March 30th at Laura Tanzer’s Studio in downtown Tucson, addressing the topic of Water Sustainability.
April is just around the corner, making now the perfect time to start talking about Community Banking Month. Local First Arizona will be providing Switch Kits to assist those who are interested in keeping their money where their home is by switching to a local bank or community credit union. Email [email protected] to request yours! We will also be hosting a special film screening of The Big Short at The Loft Cinema on Thursday, April 21st. Come at 6pm to meet with local banks and credit unions and they will treat you to popcorn and drinks at the show! Local First AZ founder, Kimber Lanning, will be introducing the film at 7pm and talking about how Arizona can use its money to support Arizona when Wall Street won't. Tickets are on sale now at The Loft.
