We had the opportunity to work with this team for the inaugural Town of Gilbert Oktoberfest. Phoenix Children’s was honored to be the beneficiary of the event and we are so appreciative of the partnership. We are looking forward to growing our relationship and are proud to work with an organization that is so committed to giving back to the communities they serve.
