State Forty Eight Foundation Launch Fundraiser
December 10, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$20
For over seven years, State Forty Eight (SFE) has been delivering Arizona pride through uniquely designed streetwear and lifestyle products. Now, the beloved local brand is expanding its reach with the launch of its nonprofit, State Forty Eight Foundation, and is celebrating with a virtual fundraiser on Dec. 10.
It has always been the prerogative of State Forty Eight to do good by empowering others to do good. As such, partnerships with local organizations and causes has always been at the forefront of their business model. Since inception, the company has given more than $100K in monetary and in-kind donation to local charities. In 2019, State Forty Eight began an initiative called “Community Impact” which was dedicated to community outreach, engagement and connected the SFE fan base with local causes, events, or volunteer opportunities.
The State Forty Eight Foundation’s mission is to enrich and strengthen Arizona through thoughtful partnerships, inspired community action, and investment in the changemakers of tomorrow. With the support of the community, State Forty Eight Foundation intends to launch and build out programming, such as volunteer events, youth mentorship and entrepreneur development, that will benefit Arizonans for years to come.
On Thursday, Dec. 10 from 6 to 8 p.m., the foundation will host a virtual fundraiser hosted by author and SFE Foundation Director, Zach Hall, and Arizona Cardinals Team reporter, Lisa Matthews. The two-hour virtual event will feature inspiring conversations with four Arizona leaders and community movers & shakers.
Guest speakers include:
- Debbie Castaldo, SVP and Corporate & Community Impact for the Arizona Diamondbacks
- Thomas Barr, Executive Director of Local First Arizona
- Jake Arians, Son of Bruce Arians and President of the Arians Family Foundation
- Lady La, Radio & TV Personality and Founder of Mahalo Made
