Cruz’n @ Phil’s in Fountain Hills cruises towards Christmas


To: All Cruisers,

Today’s TOY DRIVE at CRUZ’N @ PHIL’S  was a big success. Patty had a great idea and the cruisers supported her by being generous with their toy donations for needy kids. Over (55) Cruisers braved the chill in the morning air to enjoy the sunshine just a bit later. We appreciated Fountain Hills Fire Department, Station #1 Firefighters, Paul Peacock, Jayson Jonovich and Gabriel Gutierrez (Photo below) who came out to pick up the toys. Posing with the Firefighters are CRUZ’N @ PHIL’S registration volunteers, Connie Vincentini, Gene Marshall, Catherine Manko and Becky Hampton. Not pictured, Patty Sarraillon, Registration Coordinator, who was away attending a car club holiday dinner.
