Jeff Saunders,owner of Arizona Beds, and LFA Executive Director, Kimber Lanning
Our April mixer was hosted by Jeff Saunders at Arizona Beds. While it was tempting to nap in all those comfortable beds, the energy in the room kept everyone on their feet. New members met up with old ones and those new to Local First AZ learned about the great work LFA is doing across the state.
Kimber never fails to electrify a crowd and there were a few calls in the audience of “Kimber for Governor!” upon hearing about all that LFA is doing. Jeff provided plenty for our members to eat and drink. There were wonderful wines from Feast and great pizza from Dominicks Real Italian. There were lots of raffle prizes donated by LFA members to give away including a leather portfolio from Vantage West Credit Union, tickets to the SAACA Cocktails & Classics Event, many adorable Serta sheep from Arizona Beds, local music CDs from KXCI and even a motorcycle calendar featuring some of the pinup girls that will be in attendance at the April 27th motorcycle show sponsored by Habitation Realty. We never fail to be impressed by the energy and drive of our member businesses. Southern Arizona is a better place because of our amazing local business members.
Also in attendance were:
Jeff with LFA Southern Arizona Membership Director Erika, Corinne from Tucson Federal Credit Union and Rebecca from the Marana Chamber of Commerce
