Mesa Leadership Alumni and Members of the Current Class had a blast at our Annual Holiday get-together on Thursday, December 3 at the Mesa Arts Center (MAC) in the beautiful Brown Sculpture Courtyard. We collected 29 gift cards worth $345 for Helen’s Hope Chest. We also raised $115 for the Scholarship Fund through our raffle activities. MAC Artist Kyllan Maney made sure we were able to express our creative side. We made Shrinky Dinks–google it if you are furrowing your brow in confusion. We also created a Mesa Dream Share Cloud where we shared our dreams for Mesa in the magical balloon cloud tent. All while we learned about the MAC’s Creative Catalysts initiative to get young people, especially those under 40 to get involved in leadership in their community. We enjoyed delicious food from Zappone’s Italian Bistro and grooved to the music of Guitarras Latinas. Special Thanks to the i.d.e.a. Museum, Zappone’s and the MAC for their generous donations to our raffle.
