Silver & Turquoise Ball

Phoenix, AZ

The Phoenix Indian Center will host the 40th Annual Silver & Turquoise Ball on Friday, Oct. 20, 2023. The signature fundraising event will be held at the Sheraton Downtown Phoenix and our theme this year is “Celebrating Our Voices.” Each year the Silver & Turquoise Ball raises funds for the Center to provide direct services to customers who face daily challenges that include lack of transportation, food insecurity, lack of childcare and limited access to health care, technology, and the Internet. We hope you can join us in this worthy cause, and this wonderful evening of art, music, food, and entertainment.
