2004 Fashionality Barbara Caldwell Taylor By Bill Dougherty

You knew where you stood the moment you met Barbara Caldwell Taylor. She was not one to suffer fools gladly, nor should she. Barbara, along with Sandra Day O’Connor and Carolyn Warner, shattered every glass ceiling in the state and paved the way for women throughout Arizona. She passed away last fall at the age of 90 and left an incredible legacy for our state and its philanthropic world too. Barbara Caldwell Taylor was unique to say the least. Following the unexpected passing of her first husband Hugh Caldwell in 1969, she inherited a vast estate. Rather than joining café society, the paralegal applied for law school at ASU. She was immediately turned down due to her gender. But Barbara was no fool. She had already petitioned the Phoenix Country Club to retain her late husband’s membership, something that was unheard of in the 1960s. She along with several other widows were awarded the late husband’s memberships and even given their spouses’ introduction year to the club. Overnight Barbara became the first female member of the Club with the signing year of 1964. She would also quietly aide several servers there gain their U.S. citizenship and she paid their expenses to do so. ASU would be no match for the confident Barabra either. In 1971 she was granted access to the legal department of Tempe university and finished first in her class in 1974. She would go on to be named one of Arizona’s top litigators five times by the Arizona State Bar publication Arizona Attorney. To be on the opposing side of her in a trial was not for the faint of heart. Barbara might have been a tremendous trail attorney. However, when she met her second husband Bob Taylor at a car show in 1982, the two would create absolute magic in the charitable world. Barbara would chair the Arizona Opera Ball twice and the Phoenix Symphony Ball and Arizona Historical Society gala twice. She was a huge supporter of both the Barrow Ball and Phoenix Heart Ball. She would also become the Vice President of the Trends Charitable Fund. She never said no, even with a 60-hour-a-week law schedule. Barbara loved animals and classic cars. We would spend hours talking about our favorite dog and cat breeds, luxury autos of the late 1950s and ‘60s and the love of gourmet cooking. Barbar Caldwell Taylor was a close friend and mentor to me when I purchased Trends in 2000. She was never afraid to share her legal knowledge or make suggestions to secure my assets and interests. I will miss our quarterly lunches at the Phoenix Country Club. Our deep conversations regarding her long meals at Durant’s with attorneys Frank Brophy, Jr. and my father. But most of all, I like so many others, I will miss you, Barbara. Rest in peace my dear friend.

1991 Fashionality Nancy Joaquim By Bill Dougherty

If someone were to ask you the definition of style and grace, they would likely say “see Nancy Joaquim.” She passed away shortly after the start of the new year and leaves behind one of the most impressive resumes imaginable. In 1992 when we moved I. Magnin & Co. from the corner of 24th Street and Camelback Rd., deep into Biltmore Fashion Park, there was a huge cocktail party to celebrate the grand new store (now Saks Fifth Avenue.) I was standing in the Louis Vuitton salon when Nancy and her husband Richard happened in. I knew who they were, everyone did. Everything the couple had touched had turned to gold. Their greatest asset was The Scottsdale Conference Resort, and it was marvelous! But this was just a small facet of this beautiful and lovely lady. A graduate of Boston University, Nancy was not only an accomplished concert singer, who was able to sing in several languages, but was also greatly awarded on a national and local level. You would have never known this, due to her quiet elegance. By the 1980s, she had been appointed by several sitting presidents to serve on lofty advisory councils and committees in the fields of education, music, and the arts. She was also appointed to curate a youth program and serve as its docent at the Kennedy Center in Washington D. C. In Phoenix Nancy served on an astonishing amounts of boards. They included: Phoenix Art Museum, Scottsdale Artists School, Arizona Opera League and on and on. She published two books in her long and extraordinary life, both complex and hard to put down. Nancy was truly a gifted writer. When Nancy Joaquim walked into a room, she had what I have often described as “movie star presence.” She could silence a ballroom with her soft and elegant manner and a blinding smile and rarefied beauty. But there was so much more to her than her elegance. Nancy was as beautiful on the outside as she was on the inside. She always had something lovely to say. She never knew a stranger and was always happy to lend her immense talents to any local organization that asked. Our world will be far less sophisticated without Nancy Joaquim in it. She not only represented style and grace, but an inner brilliance that made her legendary in the philanthropic world and that of the arts. She will be missed.

LA DOLCE VITA The Season October to June By Bill Dougherty

Money makes the world go round, but do we have to talk about it all the time? This is not the first time I have had to address this problem and I suspect It will not be the last either. Recently, I had the pleasure of attending a very prestigious luncheon. But as the afternoon progressed all the speakers wanted to talk about was money and filling the ballroom with more than a thousand people. Gross! I have sat in a few ballrooms with more than a thousand people in them. It was a horrid experience. Bigger is not always better. The end result and the collective efforts of those involved are far more important than money. Besides, it’s vulgar to talk about money. Anyone who was well to do would agree. Famed socialite and powerhouse attorney Barbara Caldwell Taylor, who is remembered in this issue, felt the same. In the late 1980s she and a group of members cautioned the Phoenix Country Club that their decision to give up the Phoenix Open would be regretted. She went on to say in her compelling argument, that the club held the Southwest’s answer to the Augusta Masters in the palm of their hand. The Augusta National Golf Club and Phoenix Country Club are similar in size and course. Both are steeped in rich tradition and civility. Today the event sells out to more than half a million people. It makes a lot of money. But instead of watching players and fans dressed in sporting finery, we now see photos of people vomiting in the bushes or face

down in sand traps. These photos are sent round the world annually. Money, Money, Money. Just as we were going to press, we learned of the death of philanthropist Malcom Marr, husband of 1991 Fashionality Pearle Marr. He was a fine man and together with his lovely wife did so much to make our community a better place. He will be missed by so many. Please keep the Marr family in your thoughts and prayers. IN COCKTAIL POLO NEWS YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT ... Be very apprehensive of a couple who quickly inserted themselves in high society. Their lofty backgrounds and impressive roster of friends make them the toast of the town (sort of). But if you pull back the veneer, they are hardly the people they say they are. One even hails from a very rough area of the west side but claims Newport Beach as their hometown. In a world of ousted old friends who talk, the internet, and social media; it is easy to call what is claimed baloney. How sad that you are both so insecure that you feel you must fib. This will not end well.

The Best Gift Ever! By Patsy Lowry

“Too much of a good thing can be wonderful.” – Mae West When my mother was a senior citizen, her health was declining. I wanted to do something special for her that would give her hope and bring her happiness and something to look forward to every month all year. I told her that I wanted to give her a special, unique birthday party. She replied, “I don’t feel like celebrating and I don’t need any more gifts. I have too many things already.” I replied, “I’m so sorry to hear that because I was planning something that I thought you would really enjoy. I was going to invite twelve of my friends that love you. I thought that we could have a hat fashion show and that I would make your special lamb stew to serve for dinner.”

I proceeded to invite the twelve girls and told them not to bring gifts. I informed each friend that they were to choose a month and take my mother (without me) someplace special and interesting that would be fun for each of them. This gave my mother something to look forward to each month. with someone she truly cared about. The energy of promise. We took pictures of each friend modeling one of her hats and I put together a calendar with the “Girl of the Month.”

“Well, that sounds like a pretty good idea. I like that,” she said. My mother had collected hats during the 1940’s and 50’s and had a fabulous collection. We lined all the hats in a row in the front hallway and each guest chose their favorite one to model.

Wishing you all good things in 2024.

One monthly outing that was especially adventurous was going to Benson to see the Sandhill Cranes and then spending the night at the Cochise Hotel, which was built in the l800’s.

2024 Trends & Ideas for Living Room/Great Room By Barbara Kaplan, IFDA, Allied ASID

Be the First to Have The New Year’s Big Trends!

Being aware of upcoming Trends can be a fun way to instantly update your home’s decor and style. Living room and great room trends may be as simple as a new statement piece of furniture, a new grouping of pillows or a new lamp. Here are some mindfully chosen dynamics for new palettes, new textures, new ideas for what makes a house a home. You can make changes to your décor as you evolve into the holiday season and beyond. Whichever of these trends resonates with you, they all lead to living rooms or great rooms you’ll want to spend time in. See previous Trends issue for Trends and Ideas #1-15. 16. GALLERY STYLE FOR COLLECTORS Opting for a curated collection of lovely things is a sure-fire way of getting an original interior. Design a room to be a living gallery; a space filled with your own chosen designs and your favorite furniture, lighting, rugs, art, and accessories. It is a homage to your life’s collections as your favorite gallery and style reflecting the refined and elegant feel that galleries tend to embody. The pieces of art truly are highlighted to speak and sing their individual beauty and style. 17. CALMING COLOR PALETTES Tranquility and a calming color palette as one of the most major modern living/great room trends, as a result of the pandemic and people looking to seek ultimate comfort and calm feelings within their home surroundings, with more soothing color choices. Throughout 2023 there has been a trend towards softer and warmer shades, helping us to create cozy spaces within our homes. Neutrals and warm tones help us breathe easier and create calming and restful schemes. Although we need this in all our rooms the focus is greater for bedrooms and living rooms, spaces where we seek peace and comfort. The neutral tones and natural textures transition well from season to season. One way to successfully make a cocooning and calm living/great room work is by bringing in textured upholstery, a deep pile rug, and soft cushions and accessories which give the living space a relaxed feel. 18. WALL PANELLING Wall paneling, although not new, has seen a revival in popularity recently as people look for ways to bring interest change into their living/great rooms rather than with traditional wallpaper and


paint. However, this modern living/great room trend is all about thinking of wall paneling with a modern twist! Color is key. If you prefer slim-line paneling or a traditional pattern with beading and detailed molding, it’s still influenced by the color paint or finish you choose to enhance the décor of your room. Wall panels add a unique message while adding sophistication and character. Wall paneling is often seen as a traditional application, but in this way creates a fabulous and interesting backdrop for contemporary furniture. You can also cleverly create a paneling effect with wallpaper! 19. BRINGING THE OUTSIDE IN Bringing outdoor elements into a living/great room can be achieved with a biophilic touch! Large and small plants of all shapes and colors bring new life and breath into rooms. For a natural look start with incorporating live plants in beautiful containers into your space. Bringing nature into your home creates elements for concentration, openness, and retreat. You can also create connections with the use of natural materials, like wood, stone, natural fabrics, like natural woven wool textures, linens, and natural fibers jute. Focus on subtle textural differences, so each piece has a unique tactile effect. Smooth, rough, polished, brushed. Another thing we borrow from nature is the use of layering because nature loves diversity. When using wood, we mix a few different species and colors of the material in the same space. Soft and neutral colors are mixed with added touches of unexpected colors and patterns, to have that element of surprise and interest.

A Few Minutes With Fran Mallace How does Make-A-Wish Arizona help the local community? At Make-A-Wish Arizona, we fulfill life-changing wishes for children facing critical illnesses. Our vision is to ensure that we can grant every eligible child a wish. This exciting journey begins when a medically eligible child is referred to our organization. Volunteers team up with the Wish Kid to uncover their one true wish, which can be anything from a ‘Wish to Be …’ ‘Wish to Meet …’ ‘Wish to Have …’ ‘Wish to Go …’ or ‘Wish to Give …’ Our mission is to help each child find a wish that brings them the utmost joy. What is a unique fact that people may not know about Make-A-Wish Arizona? It all started right here in Arizona! Over 40 years ago, Make-A-Wish Arizona was established in Phoenix when 7-year-old Chris Greicius, who was battling leukemia, inspired his mom, Linda, and a group of dedicated individuals to spark joy by fulfilling his wish of ‘catching bad guys’ as a police officer. Chris became Arizona’s first honorary police officer, experiencing a helicopter ride and earning his motorcycle officer’s wings, marking the birth of Make-A-Wish. What drew you to Make-A-Wish Arizona? A former Cox Communications colleague invited me to Wish Ball, and I instantly connected with the mission and the inspiring stories of our wish kids. Joining Make-A-Wish Arizona’s Board deepened my understanding of the profound impact wishes have on critically ill children. When the chance to lead the Arizona chapter presented itself, I knew I had to follow my heart and join the Make-A-Wish Arizona team. I am grateful for the opportunity to lead an amazing team that cares so deeply for the wish kids and their families, each other, and the supportive community that includes our board of directors, donors, and volunteers. What other initiatives is Make-A-Wish Arizona working on? We are breaking down barriers to grant wishes to every eligible child in need. In 2024, we’re prioritizing diversity, equity, and inclusion, and expanding wish granting services to underserved children in Arizona, with a special focus on Hispanic/Latino and Native American communities. We are also reaching out to foster kids, non-verbal wish kids, and families who identify as Black/ African American, Pacific Islander or Hawaiian, and Asian American to bring the transformative power of a wish into their communities. Are there any myths or misconceptions that Make-A-Wish Arizona is working to overcome? The top myth about Make-A-Wish Arizona is that our wishes are exclusively for terminally ill children. In reality, around 70% of the children we grant wishes to go on to lead healthy lives and reach adulthood. We often refer to it as a ‘lasting wish,’ not a ‘last wish.’ We continue to build our Alumni Program to keep engaging with these wonderful wish kids long after their wish has been granted.


Fran Mallace President and CEO Make-A-Wish Arizona Earlier you mentioned Wish Ball, what’s new this year? This year, Make-A-Wish Arizona is hosting Wish Ball at a brandnew venue! Wish Ball 2024: Field of Wishes, An Evening of Black, White and Sparkle will be held at Chase Field on Saturday, March 9, 2024. Tickets, tables, and sponsorships are available at Please join us for this special night. What are some of your favorite wishes? My favorite wish will always be the next one! I heard that from one of our medical advisors and I concur! We’ve fulfilled wishes like working at a pickle factory, authoring a book, recording a music video, meeting a beloved celebrity, creating a mancave, experiencing walking on the beach for the first time, and of course trips to the magical Disneyland and Disneyworld! Each wish is a custom-made, unique, and life-changing experience for that child, their family, and the community. How can people support Make-A-Wish Arizona? We are proud to announce that Make-A-Wish Arizona granted a record-breaking 424 wishes for children of Arizona this past fiscal year. This is the most wishes granted in our chapter’s history! However, there are almost 600 children who are still waiting for wishes. Make-A-Wish Arizona is 100% philanthropic and we cannot do this work without the community supporting us in helping to raise the funds needed for wishes and volunteering their time. We invite you to learn more at because together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Thank you for your consideration and making a difference in children’s lives.

SJW has been providing pathways to self-sufficiency with employment at the core for over 35 years. SJW is responsible for assisting more individuals in quality, paying jobs than any other workforce organization in Arizona. It is our goal to provide long-term solutions for our clients, enabling them to truly become independent and no longer relying on government assistance of any kind. As the CEO, what personally motivates you to lead SJW? Having grown up in poverty, often times homeless, I found myself carrying a deep understanding of our client base. I have a strong passion for people, especially those that have barriers but desire positive change. SJW aligns with not only my personal story, but my professional purpose ... to make a positive impact in people’s lives. What are the common barriers clients face when looking for and upon finding stable employment? Our clients are looking to SJW to not only help guide them to quality employment opportunities that align with their experience, but also for the support needed to retain employment. Some of the barriers we remove are providing transportation, uniforms/ shoes, basic hand tools, certifications, interview coaching and attire, guidance in resume writing and most importantly, hope. Our trained Employment Specialists work with each client, meeting them where they are in their journey. They listen with care with the intent to instill confidence, hope and support to set them up for success in their life. What are the key programs that SJW currently operates? We have two programs with employment at the core of each. Our free direct hire employment program, Employment Without Barriers, has been providing holistic employment services for over 35 years. We work closely with our Preferred Business Partners (PBP) to ensure we are offering our clients direct hire opportunities with local employers that offer full-time employment, a minimum starting wage of $17 per hour, benefits and opportunity for growth. Our PBP’s understand that our clients often have barriers but come with a willingness and drive to work. Our second program is our free 90-day transitional housing program, Workforce Villages. This program offers our employed clients a 90 day “pause” where their main focus is to work and save 80% of their paycheck in their own bank account, providing the ability to save enough for first and last month’s rent so they can acquire a lease in their own name. They also attend our financial literacy and food budgeting classes which provide critical life skills to ensure lasting success free of government assistance! Can anyone apply to these programs and receive resources? The quick answer is yes! All a client needs to utilize our free direct hire employment services is two forms of ID and a desire to work. To become eligible for our free 90-day transitional housing


program, a client is required to work a minimum of 35 hours per week at $17 per hour. If there is ever an uncertainty of whether or not you qualify, please contact us at (602) 755-JOBS. What has been the impact? We closed out our 2022 fiscal year having seen 10,111 clients with 6,213 having gained full time employment. The average starting wage was $17.02 and 81% were eligible for benefits. As we continue through our 2023 fiscal year, we are seeing an increase in the average wage and are on track to serve 10,000+ clients. Can you explain your Preferred Business Partner (PBP) model? PBP’s are local businesses that offer our clients full-time work at a minimum of $17 per hour, offering benefits and opportunities for advancement within their company. We work as a true partnership. They may refer some of their staff to us who might need resources such as tools, uniforms, etc., along with recommending our housing program to any of their team that may be housing insecure. They also understand that most of our clients come with barriers. However, with the desire to work and the unwavering support of SJW, they are gaining individuals who are often committed for the long haul. Through our partnership, they also save money by not having to pay a staffing agency or recruiter to acquire employees. Additionally, it saves their HR team time as they don’t have to vet each employee, making it a win-win for everyone. What is your hope for the future of SJW? My hope for the future is to expand our services to the West Valley while continually evaluating and refining the support we provide to our clients on a day-to-day basis. A dream would be for everyone to immediately know who we are and what we do, without hesitation.

One of the most coveted invitations of the century is a visit to the exclusive sky box belonging to Carolyn and Craig Jackson. “The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions,” did not disappoint this year either. That night a select group climbed the steps to the sprawling and opulent area high above the auction. It was truly a view from the top. Music played. Hors d’ oeuvres were passed, and champagne flowed like a Texas crude oil well. Everywhere you looked you saw civic leaders, car buffs, serious collectors, and socialites. McKenna Wesley arrived and departed with a mystery date. Jason Prichett was the most handsome

and best dressed gentleman there. His equally smashing wife Andrea was by his side. If you see these two walk into a room, just go home. Famed Scottsdale jeweler, Scott Gauthier, who we had not seen in a very long time, made the shindig too. Carolyn Jackson overshadowed the sky box with her wit and beauty. She looked ravishing in a black cocktail dress. The Jackson Family Foundation does so much for our community and without fanfare. We are lucky to have them. You should have been there!

BARROW GRAND BALL 2024 A slew of very grand people passed through the portals of the Arizona Biltmore in January to celebrate the Barrow Grand Ball. Merrymakers gathered as they always have in the Gold Room of the stately resort for cocktails and passed hors d’ oeuvres, prior to dinner and dancing. Ball Co-chairs Carrie Hulburd and Kathy Munson did a spectacular job from start to finish with the affair. Barrow Women’s Board chairman Jan Lewis oversaw the lovely event as well. This year, the three ladies who were also connected by way of Desert Botanical Garden, decided on the very apropos green garden theme. Ladies arrived and departed in smashing flora themed gowns. Avant Garde did a tremendous job

transferring the Gold Room as well as the Grand Ballroom into absolute springtime splendor. The Hampton’s kept the dance floor lively and swinging. Dionne Najafi took home top honors as Belle of the Ball in a smashing and understated black and silver gown. Paul Critchfield, always the best dressed gentleman in the room, did not disappoint either. Dapper in dark blue. The evening’s festivities proved the second most successful in the history of the ball. Barrow Center of Excellence gave a large chuck of the funds raised to the Department of ENT at the fine institute. Oh, what a night!

The Pulse Of Tradition Comes Together As One As a celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the American Heart Association and the 65th Anniversary of the Phoenix Heart Ball, we are pleased to present the first of seven retrospective features in Trends. In 1959, famed Valley socialite Peggy Goldwater chaired the first-ever Phoenix Heart Ball. Her Vice-Chairman for the evening was Georgia Green. The event, which attracted around 200 people, was held at Jerry Lewis’s Koko Dinner Theater on 24th Street and Camelback Road. The location is now the site of the Esplanade office complex. The famous comedian was able to secure crooner Nat King Cole as the night’s entertainment. Today, the Esplanade office complex stands on the site. The popularity of the gala would quickly move it to the Phoenix Country Club in 1961, following a magnificent remodel by famed architect Ralph Haver. The first ball raised $10,000 which, by 1950s standards and the small size of Phoenix at the time, was a considerable amount of money. Although Board of Visitors would claim the first debutante ball a half a century earlier, the Phoenix Heart Ball would become the city’s first true charity ball. The evening set a standard of elegance and opulence the city had never before witnessed.

American Heart Association – 100th Anniversary

Peggy Goldwater – 1st Phoenix Heart Ball Chairman, 1959

• On June 10, 1924, six cardiologists met in Chicago to form the American Heart Association as a professional society for doctors. • The AHA has funded 13 Nobel Prize winners, including nine whose AHA-funded work led to the Nobel Prize. • In 1957 the first battery-operated, wearable pacemaker was implanted in a patient, funded by the AHA, which led to the fully implanted pacemakers used today.

65th Phoenix Heart Ball • Peggy Goldwater, wife of Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater, hosted the very first Heart Ball at the Jerry Lewis Koko Theater Restaurant in 1959, raising $10,000 in donations. • To date, the Phoenix Heart Ball has raised over $50,000,000! • $10,000 in 1959 has the same purchasing power as $103,381.44 in 2024. • Committee members, generous donors and A-list entertainers have included Sammy Davis Jr., Florence Henderson, Engelbert Humperdinck, Bob Hope, Nat King Cole and Josh Groban.

Mystic Pizza By Bob Stearnes, Epicurean

I love a redemption story. I love when people overcome seemingly unachievable goals in the face of adversity. I love the triumph of the human spirit. It’s no secret that during the pandemic there were hundreds, probably thousands of restaurants that had to shutter their dreams and close forever. Anyone in the restaurant business knows that the heart and soul of the chefs and owners go into every dish and customer interaction. This is the story of a restaurant that bore down and tackled the challenge head on and came out victorious. This is CM2 Pizzeria and Bake Shop. We were greeted by the larger than life chef/owner Nantas. Just Nantas, think Cher, Sting or Seal. One name is enough for this over the top exuberant chef along with his other one named team of Luca and Fabio as well. CM2 is the love child of Casa Mia, an extremely popular high end Italian restaurant that has been in business roughly twenty years in a tucked away shopping complex in Scottsdale. CM2 began amidst the beginning of the pandemic and survived by serving take out to an extremely loyal fan base. When Nanta’s father grew weary of the struggle he turned the restaurant over to his son who had worked for his father since he was eleven. The restaurant is eclectic and industrial with spray painted murals done by Nantas himself. Colorful metal chairs and butcher block tables adorn the dining area. The restaurant features a formidable array of Italian delicacies. Antipastis of calamari, artisan burrata, bruschetta and saffron scallops to name a few. Homemade soup and rustic salads are offered in abundance. However, the vast array of red and white pizzas are the crown jewels of this adorable restaurant. The pizzas are made with an extremely rare organic non GMO hi gluten wheat flour. It undergoes a cold fermentation that takes all the bloat out of pizza dough as there and no elements that artificially raise the dough. Think, healthy pizza. Think off the charts, delicious pizza! We were served a daily special pizza of margherita drizzled with a spicy chili oil with delicate fresh basil to balance it out. A creamy luxurious artisan burrata was next nestled amongst rich prosciutto and a tangy tomato and balsamic drizzle. Next came a decadent spinach and parmesan gnocchi in a delicate pink sauce with meaty mushrooms. Simply amazing. Dessert was the most incredible assortment of Nantas’s signature homemade cookies. Gluten free and quick to sell out the trio consisted


of chocolate chip, a tangy cherry and a white chocolate macadamia accompanied by a sugar free fresh whipped cream made with maple syrup and vanilla. I could have finished a bowl of that on its own and was told that I wouldn’t have been the first person to do it! Do yourself a favor and get to CM2 sooner than later as you will not want to miss out on any of the delicious items available. Go to experience the energy of Nantas and his vision, you will not be disappointed. Mangia’ CM2 Pizzeria and Bake Shop 11485 N 136th St., Suite 107 • Scottsdale, AZ 85259 (480) 314-0365 •
