Staff Reports | Digital Free Press

Free Arts for Abused Children of Arizona kicked off its 30th anniversary with the Pure Imagination Costume Gala this past October at the Sheraton Phoenix Downtown.

More than 225 supporters attended and raised over $200,000 for Free Arts programs, according to a press release.

“We are expanding to serve families and young adults with a new clinical lens,” said Matt Sandoval, executive director of Free Arts for Abused Children of Arizona. “Our staff has grown to 27 members, including new leadership focused on expanding Free Arts statewide by 2028. We’re proud of all we’ve accomplished in the past 30 years and excited about what the future holds.”

Attendees dressed up in superheroes to fairy tales and everything in between.

The theme ‘Pure Imagination’ was meant to encourage supporters to connect with their inner child and that same sense of adventure, curiosity, and wonder from our childhood. Lincoln Heritage was the presenting sponsor and additional sponsors included Desert Financial Credit Union, Edward Jones, Nationwide, and The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation.

Three Resilience Leadership Awards were provided to Frank Thompson, Susie Silverman and Desert Financial Credit Union, all who have played a significant role in Free Arts work, representatives of the brand say.
