She remembers going to Phoenix Roadrunner games, Suns games, Diamondback games, ASU games,Coyotes games, Cardinal games… the list goes on and on.

What makes Sande Charles fabulous?
When we asked Sande what she thought makes someone fabulous, she said it is someone who isn’t afraid to be different. Who doesn’t do things just because it’s “cool” or “in.” Someone who doesn’t take the easy way out, doesn’t give up and keeps their integrity and character, regardless of how hard things might get. We think Sande definitely embodies all of these traits. She has worked hard to make her dreams come true and always stands by her strong beliefs, despite what is currently trending amongst her peers. Her charitable nature is a fabulous characteristic as well. Sande says, “One of my favorite’s is the Special Olympics. It is incredible to see the athletes face their fears. They are so inspiring.”
