Tucson’s 6th Annual Fall Family Festival and Chili Cook-Off took place on October 25 and was another successful networking event.
Eighteen sponsoring companies provided various carnival-type games, 15 management companies and properties competed for chili bragging rights, more than 140 attendees enjoyed networking, and children took part in costume parade.
Attendees raised money for Big Hearts by donating via a fair-favorite event: the good old whipped cream pie in the face. This year it was the face of Kyle Kelly of Sunland Asphalt. Thanks, Kyle.
Special thanks to Thunder Canyon Brewery for its donation to raise additional funds for Big Hearts. Congratulations to the winners:

Managers from Greystar, MEB, Northland Investment, Nicolosi & Fitch, Quarterpenny, and Scotia Group hosted a hot buffet breakfast to say thank you for their support of the AMA. With a menu of homemade potato casseroles, freshly scrambled eggs, fresh fruit, hot coffee, and so much more, it was a delicious way to start the day and end the year.
