2000 Fabulous Phoenician


Herman Chanen

When I heard that Herman Chanen had died, I was overwhelmed by the sense that we had truly lost one of the great est icons of not only Phoenix, but of the entire state. Mr. Chanen moved to Arizona in the late 1940s, following his service in the armed forces. From this point it seemed that everything he touched turned to gold. He became the quintessential American dream. Initially life had its struggles for Herman Chanen, but like many he was in the right place at the right time. He had hoped that his various businesses, including a car wash, would bring him great fame. But fate would deal him a far different hand shortly after his marriage to Lois Boshes and the start of his family. He went to work for an apartment builder who showed him the business and by 1955 with a small loan he opened his own company. Chanen Construction continued to grow and by 1960, they built their first large project, Terminal 2 at Sky Harbor International Airport. The structure was an amazing example of midcentury modern architecture and was greatly awarded for its design, space-age look, and state of the art construction. As his company con tinued to grow, Mr. Chanen and his family were even featured in Look magazine in a piece titled “Boom in the Desert.” By this time Herman Chanen and his larger-than-life personality were attracting countless philanthropic and large company board positions. His reach would extend from the Valley to the entire state. He was an absolute visionary and his reputation in business and philanthropy became that of legend. There was probably none better dressed in our city than Herman Chanen. He was dashing. A bon vivant and a true gentleman. He had great style! Although I didn’t get to meet him until he became this publication’s Fabulous Phoenician in 2000. When I did, I was in awe of his presence. However, Mr. Chanen was not an intimidating figure. He had a magnificent smile and was soft spoken and very kind. I truly don’t think he believed his own press. But then again that is the tell tail sign of success. When you were with Herman Chanen, you usually dined at Avanti, Durant’s, or Tabell’s. One night at Tarbell’s, we spoke at length about Biltmore Fashion Park. Chanen Construction built the site in 1963 and finished it in 1968. It was an absolute masterpiece of mid-century modernity and quiet elegance. Herman told me how upset he was when subsequential sales of the property resulted in bad decisions and changes in the direction of Arizona’s first upscale shopping mall. He went on to say that Fashion Island in Newport Beach and the Ala Moana Center in Honolulu had been so meticulously preserved in their mid1960s perfection. He was so sad at what happened to Biltmore Fashion Park. This was just one example of his early vision and preservation he had for our state. Herman Chanen was not only a Fabulous Phoenician, boundless philanthropist and hugely successful businessman, he was a great man. He loved Arizona and the things he helped to create. There will never be another Herman Chanen. Our state was blessed to have such a fine individual grace our presence.

LA DOLCE VITA The Season October to June

People are talking about the Phoenix Heart Ball. The oldest and most anticipated charity ball of the season, which started in 1959. Actually, Board of Visitors is the oldest ball in the state, but it’s considered a debutant ball. Anyway, Amanda Garmany did not disappoint as this year’s chair. Music (a bit loud for a cocktail reception,) was a dynamic departure from the standard norm. The Phoenician did a great job passing hors d’ oeuvres and topping off champagne. Guests were led into the ballroom by kilted men playing bagpipes. The food and service were exceptional. Large buckets containing wines and cham pagne were replaced throughout the night. Merrymakers marveled at what Dennis Thompson and White House Design Studio did to transform the room. Hues of soft white, emerald green and gold were breathtaking and opulent. It was an extraordinary ball. I’ve had the pleasure of attending the Phoenix Heart Ball since 1984, missing only 1998, when the staff of Trends was forbidden from attending. That’s another story for another time. In 1994, I was seated at the I. Magnin & Co. table. The 1960 Heart Ball chair Georgia Green and several other ladies got up to dance. When they returned to their respective tables,

On a lovely evening just as the air became crisp and the vacant fireplaces restored wood and flame, Teen Lifeline held their impressive gala. This year the event was showcased at the Montilucia Resort in Paradise Valley. An opulent crowd of beautiful ladies and gentlemen arrived for a festive evening full of good things and raised needed funds. For decades Teen Lifeline has

Since 1986 the organization has answered more than 315,000 calls on its impressive teen hotline. Melina and Tony Astorga made for a smashing couple, but then again, they always do.

Healing Environments

Your home is the most important environment you will ever be in. It is your most personal space and the only space you can totally control by your choices. It may also be where you spend most of your time and spend a large amount of your money.

Most importantly, your home is the place that can determine your mental and physical health! Therefore, interior design is really about your interior, your heart ... not the space! It has to do with all the design and decorating decisions you make and how they will impact your wellbeing. So, be aware, when you are decorating your private spaces, the only consideration is you! Rooms have no feelings, YOU do!

Neuroscience tells us design is not only about the objects in a room but how we perceive them. So, selective decorating, for each individual in the space is uppermost. Design choices are endless, but not so the needs and wants of the individual person living in the space, so we must design for people first.

With all this in mind, I would like to explain further by answering some of your specific questions. Since most of us have similar concerns, especially in our environmental needs and wants, I thought you would enjoy seeing my answers to questions people have sent to me and I welcome your questions too.

Have fun with your home, see it with fresh eyes. Move things around. Take away any thing you don’t like looking at. If you really can’t get used to it, it is better to eliminate that item. There are consignment stores that will be happy to sell what you don’t want.

Always make choices you are excited about and bring you joy.

QUESTION: Many colors are relaxing to me, but I wouldn’t want them on my walls. When I look at magazines, the rooms look great, but I would be afraid to have those bold colors surrounding me all the time. How do I find a color for my walls that is really soothing to me?

Color speaks! And to make it confusing, color speaks a different language to each of us. We all have a unique reaction based on our experience and what we were told about color. We all see color differently, too! That’s why we need to personally select the colors we will be living with.

QUESTION: We want our house to feel “homey”. It seems very cold, and we were talked into things that look more like a magazine than us. How do we warm things up a bit so we feel “at home again”.

This is a complaint I hear so often. Sometimes we make decisions to please others or if we are fearful, we listen to people who we think know more, but they tell us what they like, which isn’t necessarily what we like. When decorating, the only person who needs to be pleased is you and you must make sure you are involved in every decision.

When a home is “picture perfect” it doesn’t feel real. Therefore, we cannot feel authentic in our own home. This discomfort is also not healthy. Always stay focused on what brings you comfort, joy and beauty. To begin changing what you have, select the items that you really like and eliminate what does not please you.

The most important thing you must do when painting walls is to experiment by painting several color choices at least 3’ X 3’ on your walls. Do not put them near each other, and also put the same color on opposite walls so you see it in different lighting. Don’t make quick decisions. Color changes the longer you look at it. Most of all be sure you pick the colors and don’t be influenced by anyone else. Always live with what will make you happy and healthy!

I also recommend you take my Personal Color and Design Profile on my website it will help you understand the impact of your ideal colors. And it’s free!

Always remember, rooms have no feelings, YOU do!

Giddy Up for Kids: Childhelp Cowboys Up for Arizona’s Abused Children

TRENDS: This year’s Childhelp Drive the Dream Gala has a western theme. Is there a story behind this?

SARA: Well, when you meet our Co-Chair, Mike Ingram, one of the first things you’ll notice is his giant, sleek, black Stetson hat. He and his wife, Sheila, have been sup porters of our mission for decades and our equine and animal therapy remains their favorite aspect of the Childhelp healing process. Over 63 years ago, we pioneered the concept of pairing animals with children recovering from abuse to provide comfort, gain trust, and encourage self-esteem. All these years later, it has become a standard practice in the child welfare community. We wanted to celebrate the four-hoofed heroes we work with!

YVONNE: The days that the Mini Angel Eyes therapy horses visit the Childhelp Children’s Center of Arizona Dedicated to Linda Pope, you see the children’s eyes light up. Right in downtown Phoenix, the most precious ponies clop to work with braided manes, sparkling hooves, and bright costumes. They not only bring joy, they help heal hearts.

TRENDS: It’s easy to see how this would delight children going through tough times. Can you tell me how a therapist might incorporate these horses into the recovery journey?

SARA: We had one little girl who had been abused and neglected by a mother addicted to methamphetamine. The mother had abducted the child from her ex-husband and convinced the little girl he was a bad man even though all authorities assured he provided a safe home. The mother never overcame her dependency and had to be incarcerated for multiple crimes. The father was a good guy and offering security and love, but the child was terrified because she had heard bad stories about him. Each

therapy session she had with her favorite pony provided a little breakthrough. Her counselor understood that she opened up much more freely when she spoke directly to the pony. “My dad was always nice to us. I don’t know why my mom said those things.”

YVONNE: I remember her. When the time came for her to have her first conversation on the telephone with her father in over two years, she was so scared. Our counselor asked, “What if I bring Flynn along for the call?” The thought of her favorite pony being in the room made her more open to the idea. The day of the call, Flynn was dolled up in full regalia and the little girl was so focused on petting and cuddling the minia ture horse, she lost much of her nervousness. When her father called in, she was open to talking and building back a relationship with him. I know that dad loves that pony as much as his daughter does. When the child had to tell her story in court, the judge wanted her to feel confident so she was joined in court by her pony.

TRENDS: That’s beautiful. Arizona donors support this kind of therapy and it really is unique in our region. Can you tell me more about the Childhelp Children’s Center of Arizona Dedicated to Linda Pope?

YVONNE: Our center has been serving chil dren and families since 1998. A coalition of medical professionals, child welfare officials, police officers, lawyers and therapists work together every day for the love of a child. It is recognized as a best practice agency and serves as a standard bearer for programs nationwide. We’ve had people come to study and replicate our model from Canada to Japan! We dedicated the building to Linda Pope because she was the originator of the Childhelp Drive the Dream fundraising concept and it’s her inspiration that made it

such a success. We like to think of her as an angel watching over the roughly 8,500 chil dren we serve annually. More that 140,000 abused and neglected children have walked under the sign above our door “All Who Enter Here Will Find Love” and we make sure to live up to that promise.

SARA: While we are proud of where we’ve come, today’s challenge might be our tough est yet. During the pandemic and beyond lockdown, we have seen some of the most brutal, unthinkable, and heartbreaking cases in our decades of doing this work. Like many reporting facilities, there was an increase in the intensity of the cases and deeply wounded children unwinding shat tering trauma. We have meditation chapels in each of our facilities and I can tell you that our team and partners need that space to cry, center their spirits, and pray for these children. We have a waiting list of little ones needing advocacy and must raise the resources to save each child!

TRENDS: The situation sounds serious. People sometimes forget the urgency behind our community’s wonderful charity events.

SARA: Indeed. When we were planning with the Ingram’s and Co-Chairs Kim and Rod Cullum, we discussed how bad things had gotten for children. It is literally the wild, wild west out there and vulnerable youth are caught in the crossfire. It will take a posse of committed hearts, a team of dedicated professionals, and a whole lot of love to turn this around. When we say “Giddy Up for Kids” it’s not just a slogan. We are asking everyone to ride along with us on a journey towards hope.

YVONNE: Carol and Jim Hebets, our event Vice Chairs for years, work alongside us almost daily. They witness the struggles of our devoted teams and understand how


high the stakes are. They have stepped up to fill gaps of funding, offer leadership, and brought a network of compassionate friends to the table to shore up our mission. When others had to close during COVID, we were not only open, we joined those first respond ers to save lives. We appreciate our Arizona family for standing strong with Childhelp during the toughest of times.

TRENDS: These are definitely dire times for children. Is there hope on the horizon?

SARA: Hope is our middle name! We face adversity with positivity. That has kept us going for all these years. We will not be swayed by the worst of humanity because we have seen the best of people too. At the same time we are addressing the struggles of our community, we are also providing new, innovative programs and services that expand our ability to help out. Just this year, in conjunction with the Foundation for Global Sports Development, we devel oped the Childhelp Courage First Athlete Helpline. It’s the first of its kind created solely for child or teen victims of abuse in sports and adult survivors. Like our center, hotline, and headquarters, it’s located right in our community.

YVONNE: This is the 40th anniversary of the 24/7 Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline so it’s exciting to serve even more needs nationwide. The horrible headlines of abuse in sports are everywhere and some thing must be done. We assist the athletes themselves, parents, coaches, and anyone concerned about emotional, physical, and sexual abuse in the realm of sports. Our team of specialized counselors offers con fidential support through calls, text, and online chat. The number is 1-888-279-1026 and available M-F from 12pm-8pm PST. We hope it will be a safe place for young people in crisis as well as a prevention resource for parents. Courage is just making that first phone call!

TRENDS: We know Valley of the Sun resi dents will stand up for the children we are trusted to care for.

YVONNE: Absolutely! Arizonans are some of the most generous people on earth. God led us here, watches over these children, and blesses everyone who helps children in need tenfold.

SARA: We pray this year’s event will end like a great, classic western: The good guys win the battle against abuse, everything is righted for the most vulnerable, and our children are freed to build beautiful futures as our helpers ride off into the sunset. Yeehaw!

Jim and Carol Hebets with Sara O’Meara and Yvonne Fedderson

Phoenix Art Museum - The pARTy

How did you become involved with Phoenix Art Museum?

New to Scottsdale in 1998, Howard met Mike Greenbaum, a Trustee of Phoenix Art Museum, playing golf, and Mike told him about the Circles program at the Museum. We signed up immediately, and several years later, I was invited to join the Board. A few years after that, I was Chair of the Board. Phoenix is a very welcoming and inclusive community!

What makes the The pARTy stand out from other events in the community?

The pARTy is unique among Valley fundraisers as we hold the event in the Museum. It’s surprising how many people visit the Museum for the first time that evening. But not their last!

Where and when is the event being held?

Early next year, The pARTy, being held on Saturday, January 28, is hosted in conjunction with the gala opening of the Museum’s fashion exhibition, MOVE, which will fill three galleries with the stunning clothes of the late American fashion designer Geoffrey Beene.

Where do the funds raised go?

Funds raised from the many years of this special evening go directly to supporting our important educational outreach and exhibition programming by Phoenix Art Museum. One of our goals is to make the Museum available to our entire community and expose them to fine art from many cultures around the world at large.

How many people do you expect, and is there an urgency to get tickets?

We are capping attendance at 325 guests. We feel people are still wary about groups any larger than that.

Who is the keynote speaker?

Brief remarks will be made by our Honorary Chair, Patsy Tarr, a native New Yorker.

Who is the honorary chair, and why?

Several years ago, Patsy Tarr donated to Phoenix Art Museum over 300 pieces of clothing and accessories she had collected and worn by Geoffrey Beene, a truly transformative gift. Patsy will be honored at The pARTy to show our gratitude for her significant gift.

Art from the Heart, an art auction supporting Free Arts for Abused Children of Arizona, took place the evening of October 22, 2022, at a beautiful private home in Paradise Valley. Art was on display at the event and was also represented online so the larger community could place bids and attempt to win one of 45 pieces of art generously donated by the local fine arts community. 100+ guests attended the event raising more than $130,000 that will benefit Free Arts programs. Free Arts uses the arts

and positive mentoring relationships to help build resilience in children who have experienced trauma. Thank you to the co-chairs of Art from the Heart, Lisa Portigal and Elizabeth M. Shabaker, and Honorary Chair, Cheryl Londen. We would also like to express gratitude to our Premier Sponsor, Lincoln Heritage, and Presenting Sponsors, Edward Jones and The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation.

Free Arts for Abused Children of Arizona is a nonprofit organization that uses the power of the arts to help children who have experienced the trauma of abuse, neglect, and homelessness. Free Arts’ researchbased program model, Art + Mentors = Resilience, helps children build the resilience they need to overcome trauma by connecting them with caring adults and creative activities that develop their skills and sense of self.

Free Arts believes that healthy connections with adults create change. Through partnerships with local child welfare agencies, Free Arts is able to provide this intervention to children free of cost to program participants.

Westworld became the place to be a few fall weekends ago. Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championship 2022 11th annual, returned to the field yet again with all the glitz and glitter of previous years. The sold-out event attracted some of the most beautiful people in the Valley and around the world. World renowned polo players from across the globe lent their talents

to the festive match. The Jet-set games went on throughout the entire day, as onlookers cheered! Many guests mixed and mingled at various booths and posh tents along the massive green polo field. Lee Courtney stole the show in solid black and a tremendous fascinator hat. What a beautiful afternoon!
