Impacting the world through the power of changed lives!
AZ Common Ground's
1st Annual Awards Gala 2015
You are invited to a Night of Impact, an elegant black tie affair. 
This night will include music from a live band, exciting festivities and a
chance to bid on items to raise funds for an amazing organization, AZ
Common Ground.

We will begin our evening with a silent auction, an opportunity
to network, followed by an exquisite gourmet dinner. Our awards
ceremony will honor engaged citizens who have displayed acts of
humility and devotion within our communities. Your support for our
event will allow AZ Common Ground to continue working throughout
the state of Arizona, providing education and awareness, prevention
to at-risk youth, resources to the formerly incarcerated, and
increasing quality of life for Arizona families and communities.
A Night of Impact is AZ Common
Ground's 1st Annual Fundraising Event!

community based non-profit
organization created by three former
inmates while in prison themselves.

provided effective support services for
both youth and adults who have been
convicted of felony or misdemeanor
offenses, and are attempting to rebuild
their lives. AZCG's mission has been to
restore communities through economic
development, increase quality of life,
promote crime prevention and
awareness, and honor survivors of
crime by creating safer communities
and reducing recidivism. This will be an
amazing evening, full of inspiring people
who are making positive changes within
our communities. Join us to make an
impact on this Night of Impact!
