2017 Scholarship Gala featuring David Archuleta 2017-10-30T06:53:05+00:00


Join us Saturday, November 11, 2017 for the annual Anasazi Gala

Join us on Saturday, November 11, 2017, for an unforgettable day of reunions, entertainment, honors, and giving — as we raise scholarship funds for young people and families in crisis. Held at the beautiful San Tan Elegante in Gilbert, AZ, Anasazi’s Scholarship Gala begins at 5:30 p.m. with our HUGE silent auction and ends with a concert by platinum-selling pop star DAVID ARCHULETA.

Philanthropist Gail Miller (of Larry H. Miller Education Foundation, Larry H. Miller Charities, and the Larry H. & Gail Miller Family Foundation) will be our guest of honor, receiving the Turn for Peace award.

The Turn for Peace is presented annually by the Arizona nonprofit to remarkable individuals who have devoted their lives and philanthropic work to improving those of children and families. Past recipients include Barbara Bush, Wynonna Judd, Stephen Covey, Robert & Lynette Gay, Dave Checketts, Marie Osmond, Bil Keane, and Bart Starr.

Miller is owner of the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies and Chair of the Board of Directors of Larry H. Miller Management Corporation. She and her late husband, Larry, started their business with a single Toyota dealership in 1979. The Larry H. Miller Group of Companies has grown to include more than 60 car dealerships throughout the West, the Utah Jazz, the Salt Lake City Stars, the Salt Lake Bees, media outlets, theatre complexes, sports apparel stores, and a variety of other automotive, financial, sports and real estate companies. Today, the privately-owned Larry H. Miller Group of Companies employs nearly 11,000 people.

Auction Items Needed

ANASAZI’s ever-growing silent auction will coincide once again with this year’s Scholarship Gala. Do you have tickets, air miles, or vacation points we might use to create an auction package? Can you talk a famous friend into hosting a dinner for four? Do you have connections at a resort, store, or spa that might be willing to donate? We’d appreciate any ideas or connections you might be willing to share. If you have questions (or if you simply want to donate that old bronze collecting dust in your basement), please contact Sean Rourke at 480-892-7403 or sean.rourke@anasazi.org.

Turning Hearts Homeward

Since 1988, ANASAZI Foundation has turned the hearts of thousands of young people back to their families. Many have gone on to make significant contributions in their communities. Nearly half have received financial assistance in the form of scholarships made possible by generous contributions from people like you.
