Weekend Jetaway Culinary Casino Classic Takes Off in Year Four

Posted on: October 3rd, 2015 by Alison Bailin 1 Comment

Tickets are now available for the 4th Annual Weekend Jetawaypresented by AXA Advisors SouthwestAero 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!
