Weekend Jetaway Culinary Casino Classic Takes Off in Year Four
Tickets are now available for the 4th Annual Weekend Jetaway, presented by AXA Advisors Southwest, Aero Jet and Jet Set Magazine, which will take place on Friday, October 23 from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The event will feature music, culinary creations from leading Valley chefs, custom cocktails, surprise “elevated” and “iced” entertainers, Clique Photo Station and casino games set in a private jet hangar within the Scottsdale Airport. During the event, guests will take part in a casino-style dice game, with several lucky winners taking home a multitude of lux prizes, including the grand prize–a luxurious all-inclusive, first-class vacation on a private jet for four.
This year, the event will also feature several new elements including a decadent “sweet suite” dessert bar, custom cocktail tastings, a blind wine pull, and Elevated Sponsor Lounge, which will be hosted by the Four Seasons Scottsdale Resort Troon North and allow both early access to the event and the chance to play a second, private dice game for additional prizes, courtesy of the resort. In addition, Weekend Jetaway is aiming to help its guests “chill out” no matter how warm the temperatures outside may still be by transforming the bustling hangar into an icy, white wonderland. Think human snow globes and perhaps even an igloo!
But that’s not all.
Among the popular restaurants sampling their fall and winter menus during Weekend Jetaway are:
- Arcadia Tavern
- El Hefe
- Postino WineCafe
- The Capital Grille North Scottsdale
- Four Seasons Scottsdale Resort Troon North
- Rhythm & Wine
- Jalapeno Inferno
- SOL Cocina
- The DoubleTree Resort Paradise Valley
- Tom’s Thumb Marketplace
- The Melting Pot
- Twin Peaks
“We’ve also partnered with Alliance Beverage, who will be debuting several of their seasonal, limited edition spirits and specialty cocktails all night long,” says PGA star and Weekend Jetaway host Tom Lehman.
Back by popular demand will be DJ Solomon, spinning music all night. Both a live and silent auction featuring resort, jewelry, spa, golf, dining and vacation packages will also take place, with proceeds from the entire evening benefiting Elevate Phoenix.
“Elevate Phoenix is a unique and often life-changing program for Arizona youth that provides in-school teaching; after-school mentoring; career instruction; post-secondary preparation; character, life skills and peer leadership development; community service; adventure activities; and literacy improvement within our local public schools,” says Lehman, who also serves on the Elevate Phoenix board of directors.
