Remembering ... Betty Rosenzweig By Bill Dougherty

If you were fortunate enough to have known 1985 Trendsetter Betty Rosenzweig, then consider yourself lucky. She passed away last fall, living well into her late 90s. Betty and her equally talented late husband Newt literally changed our community’s landscape and left a great legacy. By today’s standards it would be all but impossible to duplicate their success. My time at I. Magnin & Co. in the early 1990s did so much to prepare me to be the publisher of this magazine. It introduced me to people like Betty Rosenzweig. Betty, a frequent shopper in the now defunct grand store, spent hours with a team that included legendary personal shopper Kay Berry. Kay made sure that Betty always looked her very best, but in a very subtle and understated way. Tall, stunningly beautiful and not the least bit affected by her wealth, Betty had become a powerhouse in the world of fund raising by the time we met. In 1956 Betty wed Phoenician Newton Rosenzweig who was already a famous jeweler and budding philanthropist. Together the two would go on to become one of Arizona’s first true power couples, long before the term ever existed. St. Luke’s Hospital, American Jewish Committee, United Way, Foundation for the Blind and Arizona Cultural Committee were just a handful of organizations the couple helped to build from nothing to amazing organizations. Betty was a past Heart Ball Chair and chaired the Barrow Ball too. Betty Rosenzweig belongs to a generation where people threw lavish but uncomplicated dinner parties at the drop of a hat. She was a gracious hostess. She was exceptionally beautiful, yet not the least bit conceited. Her jewelry was amazing but never overdone and her style rivaled that of Jackie Kennedy’s White House years. Betty will forever be remembered for the year she chaired the Heart Ball. She was so concerned about keeping costs down that when she threw the Addressing Luncheon, she only served coffee and iced tea. She instructed all the attendees to bring a sack lunch. Both the Addressing Luncheon and later the Ball made the cover of the Arizona Republic! No one dared to do the things Betty did and she aways met wth amazing success. She had an extraordinary life.

FIGHT cancer. It’s the only thing I do. As a medical oncologist at Cancer Treatment Centers of America®, I wholeheartedly devote myself to fighting cancer. It’s not one thing I do, it’s the only thing I do. If you are diagnosed, and don’t know where to begin, start here. Start with a specialist who treats only cancer. Every stage. Every day.

Singleton Moms How and when was your charity formed? Michelle Singleton, a single mom of four children, was just 32 at the time of her cancer diagnosis. Her childhood friends Jody Farley-Berens and Andy Royal McCandless sprang into action to help their friend to “lighten the load” by making meals, cleaning the house and paying a few bills. As a result, Singleton™ Moms became a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in 2006. Briefly describe the mission of your organization. We are dedicated to nurturing single parents battling cancer and their minor children by meeting the practical dayto-day needs of the entire family, while providing hope for tomorrow. What is the most significant impact that your organization makes in the community? Singleton Moms programs meet the practical day-to-day needs of the entire

family while they are struggling through the single parent’s cancer crisis. All of our support services offer some respite from household chores and relieve a bit of the emotional stress and financial hardship to give families the ability to recover and enjoy more time together. What is the main thing that sets you apart from other non-profits? Singleton Moms is the only direct service provider in Arizona that provides support to underserved single parents receiving treatment for cancer, at no charge to the family.

Tell us something no one knows about your charity. To qualify for support, each parent must provide treatment information including a signed document from their consulting doctor. Each must be living as a single parent with no significant other living in the household, and must have children under the age of 18 living with them at least 50% of the time. In addition, each parent must be recovering from cancer related surgery, actively receiving chemotherapy, radiation or related cancer treatment that impacts their ability to work or maintain the household. How do volunteers play a role in your organization? Taking the place of paid staff, a generous group of over 300 volunteers fully run our Bare Necessities program, Singleton Kitchen program, Singleton Kids program, Singleton Santa program, Singleton Seeds program, Care Coordinator & Care Team program and Singleton Phonebook & Resources. Please describe the specific program for which TCF is providing funding? The generous funding that TCF is providing continues to allow our Care Coordinators to provide parents with meals, toiletries, monthly house cleanings, supplemental bill payment and young mom support groups.

La Dolce Vita The Season October to May People are talking about a very triumphant event, the Phoenix Heart Ball dazzled everyone the other night at the Phoenician. Most would describe the ball décor this year as quiet elegance. This task was effortlessly accomplished by the White House Design Studio. Their team led by Dennis Thompson transformed the Phoenician’s ballroom into soft hues of pink, purple and cream. It was a refreshing look when most expected a room filled with heavy and dark fall colors. It was a magnificent setting! During the cocktail reception Jennifer Carmer, together with her Executive Team which included: Char Hubble, Carolyn Jackson and Kristine Thompson, did a magnificent job making sure guests were greeted by past ball chairs, champagne glasses topped off and hors d’ oeuvres passed. The crowd which included a lot of much younger and very beautiful people graced the stately resort. Everyone wanted to know who Carola and Omar Alvarez and Stephanie Marie and Nate Reis were? These were arguably two of the most beautiful couples in the room. I hope we see more of them in the near future. Since it was my 29th Heart Ball, I surrendered our seats. My wife, the 2009 ball chair, was home under the weather and I worked with admissions to place a couple at our seats. Last month I told you that the first Heart Ball I attended was Jamie Lendrum’s in 1985, so technically this should have been ball 30. However, the former publisher

By Bill Dougherty

of this magazine forbid any of us to attend one year due to his brawl with that year’s chair. My how things have changed. I’m delighted that Scott Foust/Image-Industry is now the official photographer of the ball. Since Gittings went out of business, the photos we received resembled a senior prom. I’ve been told that the food was exceptional, the band amazing and after parties continued tell the dawn’s early light. There are more moving parts to this ball than any other in the Valley. No one hands the Executive Team a binder and says “here you go, just follow these instructions.” Every year this ball has to be completely reinvented and is expected to raise a great deal of money. It’s a tremendous amount of work and greatly appreciated by the community. The Heart Ball is the gold standard in the charity world. Started in 1959, it was held at the long since demolished Jerry Lewis Koko Theatre and Nightclub on the corner of 24th street and Camelback Road. Since then the ball has risen to titanic highs. I know they raised a lot of money, but they decided not to announce any numbers from the stage. I wish more organizations would follow their lead. I was raised to believe you never talked about money. You get the picture? Continued on page 12


La Dolce Vita – Continued from page 11 Before the season officially started, the Trends Charitable Fund took the lead with An Evening of Trends. The event returned to the Camelback Inn and what a treat it was to be back there once more. The resort rolled out the red carpet for us and everything was fantastic! This year we convinced our special events and fashion coordinator Margaret Merrett to set in place the T-shaped runway to give merrymakers a better vantage of the festivities and it worked. 10 new Trendsetters including Pat Bondurant, Kim Cullum, Melinda Gullick, Julie Kroot, Martha Martin, Kathrine Scardello, Molly Stockley Christine Watson and Erika Williams wowed the crowd. Ruth and Bob Lavinia were honored as our 2016 Fabulous Phoenicians. Urban Electra dazzled the crowd together with an opulent fashion show courtesy of Neiman Marcus. We raised a good deal of money that fall evening for several charities in Maricopa County. That alone ladies and gentleman might just change the destiny for a lot of our people. The event would not have taken place without the talents of the 3 chairs: Julie Bowe, Beth Dougherty and Kimberly Jacobson. TCF board member Kathy Harris should also be commended for her tireless efforts gathering just about any and everything for the various auctions and packages. Clyde Betts did an outstanding job with our audio visual as always. Chris Beckley, our resident musical genius, played “Be My Baby”; the tremendous Phil Spector tune by The Ronnetts; as all 10 new Trendsetters made a finale walk down the runway at the end of the night. I was so touched that Trendsetter Ambassadors Trisha Anthony, Anne Christensen and Suzanne Eder were there from the class of 1996. It

was also one of the few moments in time when a second generation Trendsetter graced the catwalk. Many of you realize that Julie Kroot is the beautiful offspring of much-adored 1985 Trendsetter Harriet Friedland who was there to wish her daughter well. Another 1985 Trendsetter, Nanci Bruner, was there too. Both ladies have supported this worthy event for more than 30 years. Thank you!!!! As we close the year, I want to make a few suggestions of things I see needing a little improvement in the social world. Even if you’re attending a fundraiser at a private home, you need to bring a h­ ostess/ host gift. Sorry! Thank you notes are always nice too. In addition, If you don’t like the person you happen to be seated next to, please at least be polite and converse. I see more of this than anything else. We’re all adults. Happy New Year! In Cocktail Polo News You Should Know: That a well-known couple just made Christmas a dream for many Valley families this year, but refuses any credit. That two angry socialites need to give it a rest, since everyone just laughs about your behavior behind your backs. That a woman who often says she doesn’t support a certain charity thinks she’s all that a bag of chips, even though most socialites can’t stand her. That several ladies who are more concerned with their cosmetically-enhanced appearances then actually helping the underprivileged need to be given the boot, since they’re only taking up space. Now you’re all caught up until 2017!

Tumbleweed Center for Youth Development How and when was your charity formed? Founded by Soroptimist International of Phoenix in 1972, Tumbleweed Center for Youth Development offers emergency support and residential solutions for youth, ages 12 to 24, during individual and family crises. Briefly describe the mission of your organization. Tumbleweed Center for Youth Develop­ ment’s mission is to “Support homeless and forgotten youth to grow and thrive.” What is the most significant impact that your organization makes in the community? Tumbleweed works to transition ­traumatized, often-abused homeless youth into strong, independent young adults through emergency resource services, housing solutions, education and employment services, and health and wellness ­programs. Tumbleweed intervenes in young lives that if unchanged can have dramatic long-term societal costs, such as chronic homelessness, long-term unemployment, substance abuse treatment requirements or contact with the judicial/penal system. What is the main thing that sets you apart from other non-profits? We operate the only non-profit emergency shelter for homeless young


people, focusing exclusively on the 12-25 age group and offering a full continuum of services ranging from emergency shelter to education, job placement and long term housing. Tell us something no one knows about your charity. Tumbleweed operates residential facilities for refugee children separated from their families, some as young as 12. How do volunteers play a role in your organization? Volunteers play a key role in helping keep our facilities clean and well maintained,

offering tutoring services and helping organize community contributions in our Donation Center. Please describe the specific program for which TCF is providing funding? Generous funding from Trends Charitable Foundation has provided homeless youth, ages 18-25 safe shelter at its Emergency Housing Program. Here, street-dependent youth have the opportunity to stay 30-90 days in a safe facility and have access to Case Management services, employment and education services and work towards exiting to safe and stable housing and ultimately, self sufficiency.


New Beth Ames Swartz Exhibit of Works 1963-2016 Swartz calls her latest series of paintings Homage, since the works honor two painterly sources: Josef Albers (1888-1976), a German born American artist who may be best remembered for a “hard-edge” series entitled Homage to the Square and Howard Hodgkin (1932-), possibly the most well-respected British artist alive today. Hodgkin’s work is loose and free ... the polar opposite of Albers’ orderly compositions. Swartz continues painting works that contain visual elements that reflect her fascination with order, disorder, reordering thereby reminding us of the continuous cycle of life, death, and rebirth. The Arizona Jewish Historical Society (AZJHS) invites the general public to a free exhibition of thirtyeight paintings surveying art created by Swartz in the period 1963-2016. The exhibition is open through January 21, 2017 at 122 E. Culver St., Phoenix 85004 on Monday-Friday from10am to 4pm and on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month from 6:30 to 9pm. Docent guided tours available on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12 to 3pm. A special program will be held on Friday, January 20th during which time a film on Swartz and her art will be screened; the film is free, but reservations must be made. For more information on the AZJHS program and the screening of a film on Swartz and her art, contact Larry Bell,, (602) 241-7870. For more information on Beth Ames Swartz visit or or

Free Arts for Abused Children of Arizona How and when was your charity formed? Originally founded and operating in CA, art therapists Elda Unger and Margaret Beresford along with Executive Director Stephanie Small started Free Arts for Abused Children in AZ in 1993. Briefly describe the mission of your organization. Free Arts’ mission is healing abused and homeless children through artistic expression. What is the most significant impact that your organization makes in the community? Free Arts serves over 7,000 abused, homeless and foster care children each year, having served over 100,000 children since 1993. Children who have suffered trauma from abuse, neglect or homelessness require more than just basic needs; they need a way to express emotions in a positive way, learn to trust again and to heal from past trauma. Free Arts programs provide this outlet helping children build resilience and develop trusting relationships with positive adult role models. What is the main thing that sets you apart from other non-profits? Free Arts is the only nonprofit organization in Arizona that delivers creative and therapeutic arts programs, at no cost, to children ages 3 to 21 who have faced abuse, neglect and homelessness.

What is the biggest developing need in your organization’s field of expertise and how does your organization plan to address this in the future? As more research is coming out about the lasting effects of childhood trauma; we can better understand how trauma affects the brain and design programs to counter these negative effects. Free Arts staff and volunteers are undergoing training in Trauma Informed Care in order to infuse our programs with the latest research in this field. Tell us something no one knows about your charity. Free Arts designed the “It Shouldn’t Hurt to Be a Child” license plates that appear on more than 16,000 vehicles throughout the state of Arizona. Proceeds from the registrations of this special license plate go to fund child abuse prevention programs statewide. How do volunteers play a role in your organization? We have over 900 volunteers that deliver all of our programs throughout the Valley. It is because of our volunteers that we can reach the large number of children each year that are served in our programs. Please describe the specific program for which TCF is providing funding? Trends funding will support Free Arts programs for children delivered to our 35 child social service agency partners in Maricopa County. We anticipate Trends funds will help us reach more than 8,000 children in Maricopa County in 2016.

Cortney’s Place How and when was your charity formed? Cortney’s Place was founded in 2007 by Cindy & Jim Carpenter. We received our 501c3 status in Nov. 2008. Briefly describe the mission of your organization. To provide the physically and mentally challenged individuals an array of opportunities through education and programs for life, giving them an ability to further reach their individual goals which elevate their personal potential as members of the community. What is the most significant impact that your organization makes in the community? Over half (53%) of Cortney’s Place students are confined to a wheelchair. Cortney’s Place provides a variety of programs to individuals with severe and profound disabilities. Many day programs only offer services to a limited number of individuals in wheel chairs (especially those needing full care because it takes more resources to provide toileting, feeding and additional care). What is the main thing that sets you apart from other non-profits? The quality, variety and types of programs we offer at Cortney’s Place sets us apart from other day programs like


ours. A few of these special programs are: Hydro-therapy, Community Outings (eight (8) per week), Pet Therapy, Music Therapy, Health & Wellness Programs and a grant-funded Snoezelen Room to focus on sensory awareness and stimulation. Tell us something no one knows about your charity. Our organization provides toileting and changing up to 3 times per day for our students. Most day programs that serve the disabled only provide 1 or 2 changes per day and some don’t provide any changes. How do volunteers play a role in your organization? Volunteers help us at our fundraising events, help at the Center with special things like reading to the students,

exercising with the students and staff, assisting on outings and helping with art activities. We also have volunteers who help us with data entry and other administrative tasks. Please describe the specific program for which TCF is providing funding The grant funding that Trends provided to Cortney’s Place is for Social Storybooks to help disabled individuals with Life-Skills. We are creating 20 Social Storybooks that help educate our students and their families in the areas of hygiene, clothing sizes and clothing for different seasons, appropriate social etiquette, proper diet and nutrition practices, etiquette for dining out, personal boundaries and friendships, having self confidence and building self-esteem.

MEET THE SUPREMES Chair Jennifer Carmer, together with Carolyn Jackson, Kristine Thompson and 2017 Chair-Elect Char Hubble, certainly had the Midas touch with everything they did from the event’s start to finish. The much anticipated return to The Phoenician didn’t disappoint either. The resort proved the perfect answer to the sell-out crowd of more than 750 beautiful and dashing people.

A top fundraising ball, known throughout the country for its over the top everything, gave way to elegance reminiscent of the White House state dinners of the early 1960s.

Teen Lifeline How and when was your charity formed? As a result of the made-for-TV movie Surviving that aired on national television in 1985, mental health agencies began to look at the problem of teen suicide nationwide. Arizona was ranked 2nd in the nation for teen suicide rate; double the national average. In 1986 Teen Lifeline was developed as an innovative solution to address teen suicide from a grant through the McKesson Foundation. Briefly describe the mission of your organization. Our mission is to provide a safe, confidential and crucial crisis service where teens help teens make healthy decisions together; impacting the devastating problem of teen suicide. What is the most significant impact that your organization makes in the community? In our 30-year history, we have provided a connection of hope to over three quarters of a million teens and families across Arizona. We’ve answered over 175,000 calls through our 24/7/365 peer-to-peer crisis hotline and new text-messaging service. We also

provide free prevention, education and postvention services to schools and other youth organizations across the state. What is the main thing that sets you apart from other non-profits? Studies have shown that teens are more likely to turn to other teens first to talk about their problems. Our unique peer-topeer model is the only one of its kind in

the state, and one of only a handful nationwide. Teen volunteers train for 72+ hours with Master level clinicians to take crisis calls from other teens and provide a connection of hope to their peers. How do volunteers play a role in your organization? Our teen volunteers are the heart of our operation. They are real life superheroes, volunteering their time every day (even holidays) to literally save the lives of other teens. On average, each volunteer will answer 150 calls annually, with 1 in 3 calls from a teen considering suicide. Please describe the specific program for which TCF is providing funding?

The second night was presented in Andrea Bocelli’s country home in the Tuscan hills. The next day was a trip by privately charted train to Venice for a memorable lunch at Palazzo Pisani Moretta on the Grand Canal. This was followed by the grand gala in Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, and the final night at Palazzo Corsini along the Arno River. The guests based their trip from the impeccable Four Seasons Firenze Hotel.

Childhelp History Founders In 1959, two women, former Hollywood actresses, were sent to Japan on a government-sponsored goodwill tour during the Korean War. During their visit, these women – Sara O’Meara and Yvonne Fedderson – opened International Orphans to support 11 JapaneseAmerican children found wandering the streets. Because of their mixed heritage, the local orphanages would not take them in. Within a few weeks the number of children increased to 100. Now called Childhelp, this organization is one of the largest child abuse prevention, intervention and treatment organizations in the United States. For over five decades now, Childhelp’s founders, Sara and Yvonne, have worked tirelessly to ensure that more than 10 million children around the world are protected from abuse, neglect and bullying. Childhelp Childhelp’s programs and services include residential treatment services, children’s advocacy centers, therapeutic foster care, group homes and child abuse prevention, education and training. It operates facilities in California, Virginia, Tennessee and Arizona and has several volunteer chapter organizations around the country. Locally, the Childhelp Children’s Advocacy Center of Arizona dedicated to Linda Pope, founded in 1998, has served over 140,000 abused and neglected children in the state by providing treatment, intervention and investigative services. A model of community collab­oration, the center provides a child-friendly atmosphere where members of the multidisciplinary team interview child victims, provide medical exams and specialized mental health treatment for children in need and provide family members with referrals to other community resources.


Each year, proceeds from the Childhelp Drive the Dream Gala ­benefit the Childhelp Children’s Advocacy Center of Arizona. Chaired by Dr. Stacie J. Stephenson and Mr. Richard J Stephenson, the 2017 Childhelp Drive the Dream Gala is striving to raise the financial resources necessary to help Childhelp meet the needs of the 8,500 children the center serves annually. An average of five children die every single day in this country as a result of physical, sexual and emotional abuse. And that is five too many. For more information, visit

Foundation for Blind Children How and when was your charity formed? The Foundation for Blind Children was formed in 1952 by a group of parents who didn’t want to send their visually impaired children to a residential state school in Tucson. It began with a weekend recreational program that still exists today. We now have programs and services for clients of all ages, from birth to currently 103 years old. Briefly describe the mission of your organization The mission of FBC is to provide education, tools and services that enable all persons with vision loss to achieve greater independence. We currently serve more than 2,000 children and adults, with some coming from as far away as Africa and France to receive our services. What is the most significant impact that your organization makes in the community? The national unemployment rate among blind people is 70%. At FBC, it’s 5%. We get our students to work and make a difference in their lives. What is the main thing that sets you apart from other non-profits? FBC is the only agency of its kind in Arizona. 80% of our students have multiple disabilities in addition to vision loss. At FBC, no blind child is ever turned away, and that’s a game changer!


What is the biggest developing need in your organization’s field of expertise and how does your organization plan to address this in the future? The biggest developing need in the special education world is measuring true outcomes of students over their lifetimes. FBC is developing a tool to measure, document and communicate progress year over year over year. When completed, FBC’s tool will revolutionize the lives of special needs children and their parents. Tell us something no one knows about your charity Several of our students and former students are world record holders. They’ve climbed to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro, hiked the Grand Canyon rim-to-rim in 24 hours,

swam Alcatraz, and successfully completed a Warrior Dash competition! How do volunteers play a role in your organization? Volunteers play a critical role at FBC. From special events to fundraising to braille transcription, we couldn’t provide the services we do without their tireless efforts. Please describe the specific program for which TCF is providing funding? TCF is funding our Family Services program which helps children and families remain positive and strong in difficult circumstances. This program focuses on supporting the families of our students by providing emotional support, educational workshops and family outings.

When you’re a city-dweller living in an apartment, finding the right dog can be a challenge but Chivas is the perfect dog for urban living and for those of us who lead a lazier lifestyle. The laid-back Boston Terrier specializes in being a couch potato and after a short morning stroll, he prefers to veg out on the couch with his human pal. The 4-year-old is extremely affectionate and outgoing, greeting both strangers and longtime friends with nubby tail wags and an abundance of kisses. He’s housetrained, leash trained, knows a few tricks and is great with other pets. Meet Chivas at the Arizona Humane Society’s Campus for Compassion located at 1521 W. Dobbins Road in Phoenix. He may have been adopted by the time you visit the shelter but there are hundreds of other dogs just like him who need a home. For more information call 602.997.7585 and ask for animal number A544057.

Petrie was a former stray who was rescued from the engine of a car by a team at the Arizona Humane Society. After a few weeks spent in a foster home, 9-week-old Petrie is ready for a new home. The Snowshoe kitten has gorgeous markings, sea blue eyes and a motor boat purr that is so loud, it tickles your ear. She’s the master of mischief and will nosey her way into open paper bags, sneak into open cabinets, and bat at tassels on your purse. Easily entertained, Petrie will bat around anything whether it’s a milk cap, a wad of paper, or a toy mouse filled with cat nip. Meet Petrie at the Arizona Humane Society’s Campus for Compassion located at 1521 W. Dobbins Road in Phoenix. She may have been adopted by the time you visit the shelter but there are hundreds of other cats just like her who need a home. For more information call 602.997.7585 and ask for animal number A529019.
