I remember my first Crush. She was fun, elegant, had great taste in food and always looked to give back to others. Thankfully, that has never changed. If you’ve never been to the First Crush Charity Gala in Tempe, you really are missing out.
** Update: Starting in 2017, First Crush has been re-branded as Vicinity: Internationally Tempe – Please check out the new and improved event!
There is a NEW venue for First Crush this year! The 2016 First Crush Charity Gala will be held at the Arizona Historical Society Museum at Papago Park. The museum is located at 1300 N College Ave Tempe, AZ 85281. The event will feature Four Peaks brews, local wines, and tasty food favorites from places like Whole Foods, M Culinary Concepts and Snooze. There will be live, local music, as well!
The raffle and silent auction items at First Crush are always awesome! The 2016 auction is full of trips, activities, gift certificates and one-of-a-kind experiences that are totally Tempe.
The event will also feature a raffle item where the winner will get to choose their favorite getaway. Which will you choose if you win?? the Ultimate Pro Sports Fan Getaway, a Puntacana Resort & Club Caribbean Paradise Getaway, or a Fairmont Chateau Whistler Ski Getaway?!
This really is a can’t miss event!

Hi Nick, thanks for publicizing this charity event! I’m a local singer-songwriter (you can check the website if you’d like) and I’d love to donate a performance for charity. If you come across something like this please feel free to pass my info along.
All best to you, and perhaps our paths will cross someday!
