Support Two of Our Causes

I hope everyone is having a great start to 2011! So far it has been busy and it looks like 2011 will be another exciting year.

As part of our mission at Candelaria Design, we are always trying
to give back to the community and we are proud this year to be involved in two charities, the Scottsdale Charros and the Arizona Kidney Foundation Dancing with the Stars AZ.

Yes - I am attempting to dance and will be doing so this coming Friday, February 25th at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel. This is a great cause and your vote of support will help raise money for the Arizona Kidney Foundation. My lessons have been going great and we have several video posts of my practice sessions and an interview at one of our projects in Paradise Valley on our Facebook page and on the Kidney Foundation pages. As of this morning I have raised $ not so good. So I can really use your help to raise some money for this amazing organization! You may help support me "at the push of a button" by purchasing tables and votes. The link below takes you directly to my Kidney Foundation web pages, his debut You Tube video, and the purchasing page. Please help support my two left feet for a greater cause – The National Kidney Foundation of Arizona!

So if that was not enough, the very next evening we kick off Spring Training for the World Champion San Francisco Giants at Scottsdale Stadium with our Scottsdale Charros First Pitch Event Saturday evening, February 26th at the Scottsdale Air Center at 5pm. This is going to be a real fun evening, low key, boots and jeans, country music, dancing, and includes all food an beverage! Individual tickets are $150 or a table of 8 can be purchased for $1000. All proceeds go to supporting our Scottsdale Charities which primarily aim to support education and scholarships for Scottsdale youth and teachers and the community in general! Tickets can be purchased by contacting my office at 602-604-2001 or emailing me at I hope I see you there and we get down to some great food and fun times.

You can also purchase tickets for San Francisco Giants spring training games and help the Charros by going to

and when prompted enter promotional code CHAR-CANDE for great deals on both general admission tickets and tickets to the Charro Lodge which is a great way to enjoy the game and entertain clients, friends, and family!

And, while you're in the voting mood, be sure to help support your favorite residential architect

(under Real Estate - Residential) in Ranking Arizona's 2012 poll. You can vote for us once every 90 days. Thanks for keeping us in the Top 10!

So that should get us through next weekend. We have updates coming on additional events, projects, recipes, publication features, and our 2011 Candelaria Design Italy Trip being tentatively set for August 31st through September 11th! Thanks for all the support both on our blog and our Candelaria Design Fan Page on Facebook. We appreciate it!
