WineStyles Evening this Saturday

By Katy Kelewae
STARS Development Associate & Volunteer Coordinator

As any nonprofit can attest, the current economy isn’t making the business of charity any easier. Scottsdale Training and Rehabilitation Services (STARS), a local nonprofit serving adults with developmental and cognitive disabilities for nearly 40 years, is appealing to individuals social side to raise money after the heavily-government funded nonprofit suffered significant cuts during the past year.

Scottsdale Leadership alumna Virginia Korte, Class 3 is the current President/CEO of STARS. Alumni that currently serve on the board of directors for STARS include:
Katherine Hutton, Class 19, Thunderbird School of Global Management
Carder Hunt, Class 7, Retired
Senator Carolyn Allen, Class 1, District 8 Senator
Hanna Khleif, Class 15, Chaparral Suites
Wendy Lyons, Class 13, Community Stewardship Scottsdale Healthcare
Alesia Martin, class 22, Scottsdale Insurance Company
Willie McDonald, Class 23, City of Scottsdale

This Saturday, May 15, from 5 to 8 p.m., WineStyles at Tatum and Shea is donating portions of sales to STARS. WineStyles offers five wine tastings for only $15 – but from 5 to 8 p.m. this Saturday, $10 of every tasting goes directly to STARS. Likewise, 20 percent of all wine sales will be donated as well.

What could be easier than bringing out some friends to enjoy some great wine and support a local nonprofit?

It hurts…it might be broken …someone, please help.” Although these are the words of someone being rushed into the emergency room, this is actually our healthcare system crying out for life support!

On November 6th Scottsdale Leadership Class 24 ventured into a lively discussion on healthcare co-sponsored by Scottsdale Healthcare and the Mayo Clinic.
