A Season of Giving

H

ere we are: December, the culmination of 2017. We're asking ourselves, "How can it possibly be December?" Especially here in the Valley where temps in the 90s are still somewhat fresh in our memories! Yet we find ourselves reflecting on the year that is almost over.  Without recapping all the events, we can certainly say it's been a newsworthy year, filled with delight and disappointment. We'll catalog our memories and make plans to embrace, improve or change what's ahead in the new year. But before we do that, let's celebrate December and bid it farewell with all the gusto we can.

In this month's issue, we offer a variety of activities to consider. Looking to get into the spirit of the holiday? Make plans to visit "Arizona's Christmas City," better known as Prescott. A feast for your eyes, holiday lights will illuminate the historic courtyard and the sounds of the season will ring in the air. As festive as the holidays can be, they can also be difficult for many, but helping others is a sure way to lift your spirits. One of Mike's and my passions is giving back. Whatever cause or charity you support, giving back comes in many forms. We can offer our time, our talents or our treasures. Having this publication is a gift as it allows us the ability to showcase the plethora of wonderful charities in this area, and we've shared a few for you to get to know better.  And what's the holiday season without events that require some gussying up? Not sure how to dress? Check out our piece that helps you decipher what attire might be appropriate. Once you've figured it out, we've provided some places that offer opportunities to ring in the New Year. I look forward to the days ahead as 2017 comes to a close. Mike and I will celebrate birthdays, spend time with beloved family and ingest the holiday fervor while being mindful of all of our blessings. And that includes you, our readers. Thank you for all you do. We're honored and humbled to have such a devoted philanthropic community! Wishing you the merriest of Christmases, the happiest of holidays and an abundance of blessings as we welcome and embrace 2018.

joy and magic to more than 3,000 victims of domestic abuse and their children during what can be a difficult and dark time. Wonderland 2017 has two components. The first is a Polar Express-themed holiday carnival for residents of emergency shelter and transitional housing, featuring themed arts and crafts, games, food, entertainment and other fun surprises. The second is a donation drive to provide gift cards to clients, empowering them to shop for their families for the holidays. With the help of the community, Chrysalis provides each client with enough gift cards to purchase gifts for their children, as well as cook a holiday meal. Donors can sponsor a child for $50, sponsor an adult for $25 and feed a family member for $15. There are also opportunities to sponsor different aspects of the holiday carnival. Chrysalis, a 36-year-old Arizona agency, leads the community to broad-based solutions to prevent domestic abuse. The lives of more than 1,400 individuals are impacted each year. Services include crisis shelter, transitional housing, outpatient counseling, offender treatment, victim advocacy and lay-legal support.  To make your contribution to Wonderland, visit  NoAbuse.org.

Burgundy is an alternate way to add a bold yet playful color to your party pants (or jeans). A velvet blazer is the perfect way to dress up a pair of jeans or black pants. It’s also a great outerwear option for a black jumpsuit or dress. Make a statement with a red skirt or pair of pants, but let them be the star of the show. Add a little sparkle with an embellished bomber jacket or cardigan. Tights and booties will work here too for chillier temps.

Need a gift idea? Or just a little boozy cocktail to get you in the holiday spirit? This Fernet Hot Chocolate makes a perfect gift, or treat for yourself, this holiday and winter season. Fernet is an Italian amaro and digestif. During my trip to Italy this summer, I fell deeply in love with this digestif as a shot to have after a meal to settle the stomach. Not only is it delicious, but it works. Fernet has a blend of herbs that have notes of saffron, myrrh, rhubarb, chamomile and cardamom. It makes a lovely pairing with hot chocolate. This gift set makes 8-10 cups of hot chocolate with your favorite nut milk or milk. The fernet mini bottle is perfect for one drink. Other recommendations are bourbon or tequila.

here is something magical about the holiday season here in the Valley. That something goes well beyond the sidewalks and streets

lined with luminarias and the twinkling lights that adorn saguaros and palm trees just as frequently as they do spruces and evergreens. What is truly special resides within those groups in our community who embody the season of giving, but whose efforts are felt year-round. They may not be in it for the recognition, but we feel they should get a bit. A First Place participant works at Chase Field. Photo by Stephen G. Dreiseszun/Viewpoint Photographers.

FIR ST P LACE-P HO EN IX “We don’t want to tell people what is possible—we want to show them. People with disabilities have a far greater potential than most people ever thought.” – Denise Resnik, founder and board member, First Place AZ FirstPlaceAZ.org As children with autism transition into adulthood, they often struggle to find their way in a world where the resources that may have helped them growing up may no longer apply, and their challenges in daily life suddenly have little to no support. Enter First Place-Phoenix, a new $15 million residential property for adults with autism which broke ground last December. Located in Midtown at Third Street and Catalina Drive, the complex will have 55 apartments with varying layouts designed to promote safety and security, and offer a variety of programs that enhance residents’ skills and abilities to live, learn, work and relax. Slated to open in early summer 2018, First Place-Phoenix will also offer a twoyear transition academy in conjunction with Gateway Community College for residents whose ultimate goal is to live more independently, as well as a leadership institute for medical professionals and researchers when it is complete.

Because of that, Aid to Adoption of Special Kids has made it their mission to ensure every foster child has someone in their lives who cares. Through programs focused on adoption, fostering and mentoring, AASK seeks to match kids with families and individuals best suited to complement their specific individual needs to help them through the process toward stability. Committed adults who may not be in a position to adopt or foster are making an impact through the mentorship program. Mentors provide dependable companionship while participating in enjoyable activities which can mean so much to kids, and by providing a needed role model, can help set an example for older youth to emulate as they transition into adulthood.

C U C C I D AT I - I TA L I A N F I G C O O K I E Tomaso Maggiore, chef and owner of Tomaso’s restaurant, grew up in Sicily and recalls picking and drying figs with his family so they could be used in the traditional holiday cookie. “I remember it was an exciting time and I’d chop the figs and prepare the other ingredients that were used by my mother and aunts to prepare this delicious cookie,” he says. INGREDIENTS FOR THE DOUGH

1 pound sugar 1 pound Crisco 6 eggs 1 tablespoons vanilla 1 cup milk 1 ¼ pounds cake flour 1 ¼ pounds all-purpose flour 3 tablespoons baking powder INGREDIENTS FOR THE FILLING

2 pounds chopped dried figs 1 ½ pounds chopped dates 2 cups brown sugar 1 ½ pounds chopped unsalted pistachios 2 12-ounce jars pineapple preserves 2 12-ounce jars orange marmalade Zest of 1 orange and 1 lemon 1 teaspoon allspice 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 ½ cups of coarsely ground unsalted pistachios INSTRUCTIONS

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 2. With an electric mixer, beat together the Crisco and sugar until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time. Then add milk and vanilla; mix well. 3. In a separate bowl, prepare dry ingredients. Return to dough mixture adding flour and baking powder and mix thoroughly. Combine flour mixture and egg mixture one tablespoon at a time until the mixture is completely blended. Place mixture in refrigerator and prepare filling. 4. For filling, place chopped figs and dates in mixer. On low speed, add preserves and marmalade. Mix well. When fully incorporated, add brown sugar, spices and citrus zest and mix well. Then add nuts and mix well. 5. To form cookies, begin by spreading some dough on a floured board. Using your hands, flatten dough into a rectangular shape, about 5 inches by 12 inches. Add some filling and spread out evenly. Roll dough to create a 2 ½-inch-by-12-inch log. Cut into 2-inch bars and place on parchment-lined cookie sheet. Sprinkle ground pistachios on each cookie. Repeat process with remaining dough. 6. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes. 7. When cooled, dust with powdered sugar and store in airtight container. Cookies can be frozen.
