C.A.R.E.S Committee Hosts Bermuda Shorts & Ice Cream Social

Yesterday, the Lovitt & Touché Tempe C.A.R.E.S Committee held a Bermuda Shorts & Ice Cream Social that benefited three charities: Lifewell, Fiesta Bowl Charities and Arizona Animal Welfare League. Employees were free to dress down for the day to celebrate the event!

Lifewell is a non-profit integrated healthcare agency providing treatment, services and support for low-income clients diagnosed with serious mental illness (SMI), general mental health issues, and substance abuse disorders. Lifewell offers residential, outpatient and community living programs, which are client centered and adapted to address a broad range of needs. Their programs provide safe and supportive environments that foster recovery, healthy living and personal growth for clients as they build on existing strengths, focus on addressing deficiencies, and learn new social and vocational skills.

Fiesta Bowl Charities strives to enhance organizations that contribute to the success of their communities through youth, sports and education. Their vision is to be a world-class community organization that executes innovative experiences, drives economic growth and champions charitable causes, inspiring pride in all Arizonan’s. As a nonprofit organization, it believes in the importance of fostering a culture of community outreach and service.

The Arizona Animal Welfare League (AAWL) was founded in 1971 and is the largest and oldest no-kill shelter in Arizona. AAWL’s vision is to be the community’s leading source for pet adoptions, affordable veterinary services, volunteer opportunities, humane education and expertise in animal welfare. Over the past 44 years the organization has grown from adopting a handful of animals each year to a full service animal welfare organization and leader in innovative behavior training, medical care, adoption, education and community outreach programs.

Our friends from AAWL were kind enough to stop by and share more information about their work and they brought a special guest as well! Chuck Norris (Pictured Right), one of the many sweet dogs at AWL who are looking for their forever home, was the star of the day as he lit up the office with his heartwarming energy.

A total of $213 was raised through a 50/50 raffle that was held and the proceeds were split between all three of our charities.

Thank you to everyone who participated and contributed to these great charities that we are so proud to support! We would also like to thank Amerisure Insurance for sponsoring the event!
