“A Night with Greatness” Charity Fundraiser for Both Ends Burning

Posted on: March 29th, 2011 by Amy Martin No Comments

On Wednesday, April 6th, sports and business leaders will come together in Scottsdale for “A Night of Greatness” to illuminate the urgent need for a new system of international adoption so more orphaned and abandoned children around the world can have the benefit of a permanent, loving family. The public is invited to share the evening with these special sports and business “Greats” at the special event being held at the new Parc Central Restaurant and Lounge at the Scottsdale Quarter.

“A Night with Greatness” Charity Fundraiser for Both Ends Burning

Arizona Cardinals Coach Ken Whisenhunt, will host the special evening, the first fundraiser of the Both Ends Burning Campaign. The campaign is a compelling new social movement to transform the broken system of international adoption, which is failing kids who need families. Both ends of the adoption spectrum are burning: Orphans, because they have an unmet right to a family and adoptive families, because they are blocked by a system that is too costly, too bureaucratic, and too fraught with delays.

The evening begins at 6:30pm with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres hosted by Parc Central. The evening will include live music by Dawn Jameson, a live auction for unique experiences with noted sports and business greats (for a list of auction items, follow this link), and an exciting raffle to benefit the campaign.  A minimum donation of $100 to the foundation is required to attend. Donations may be made at

“The purpose of the special evening is to get as many great people as possible into one room to champion the cause of parentless children”, said Craig Juntunen, founder of the Both Ends Burning Campaign. “Having all these great business and sports successes together in one place in support of adoption will provide strong forward momentum for the initiative to create a new system that truly serves children who need families,” said Juntunen, author of Both Ends Burning: My Story of Adopting Three Children from Haiti.
