The Arizona Promotional Products Association’s (AzPPA) new Philanthropy Committee hosted the regional association’s first fundraising event of the year on April 6. Puppies & Prosecco, a brunch to support local animal shelter, Home Fur Good, was held at The Churchill, a downtown Phoenix eatery, with a Mexican food buffet provided by Provecho catering. The event collected approximately $500 in donations for the shelter, and two of the puppies in attendance left the day with possible adoption interviews scheduled for the following week.

“We are so proud to have had such a successful event for our first venture in 2019. It was all for a great cause, and Home Fur Good truly appreciates our support,” says AzPPA's 2019 Philanthropy Chair Stephanie Welch of distributor HP2 Products & Promotions.

Other members of the Philanthropy Committee include Anna Wiese, with supplier and AzPPA 2019 Gold Sponsor Imagen Brands, and Stephanie Canter, with distributor HDS Brand Solutions in Phoenix. Numerous sponsors also contributed to the cost of brunch and goodie bags that were distributed.
