Champion Sponsors

Because every child deserves a champion, we honor those who have courageously made a difference for Arizona youth

Presenting Sponsor Blue Cross Blue Shield Arizona

Building stronger communities goes beyond constructing spaces where people live and work. We are passionate about building our neighborhoods and improving lives by helping those in need. Some people call it giving back — we just call it being a good neighbor.
