The Phoenician Awards
The Phoenician Awards, a “people’s choice” awards program honoring excellence and superior achievements, will debuting on Wednesday, Oct. 2, at the Arizona Historical Society Museum. Individuals and companies in 35 categories will be recognized at the awards ceremony, hosted by multi-Emmy award-winning actor Ian Buchanan. The event will benefit Banner Health Foundation/Cardon Children’s Medical Center.
Mary Manross, former mayor of Scottsdale, will be presented with “The Lifetime Achievement Award,” for her lifelong professional commitment to service in her community.
Arizonans are encouraged to vote for their favorite individuals and companies via the Phoenician Awards’ Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/PhoenicianAwards. Every individual vote counts and will be part of the official tabulation. Voting categories range from arts, education, retail and sports to entertainment, leisure, real estate and hospitality.
There are 4 nominees in 35 categories, which were selected by nomination committee members, including: Doug Bruhnke, John Burley, Tim Holt, Maral Jorjani, Carlo Karim, Rick Kidder, Chris Mallory, Coleen Rossi and Dale A. Walters. The Phoenician Awards’ official CPA, Henry & Horne, tabulated and certified the nominations and will also tabulate and certify votes from the public.
Winners are kept secret until they are announced on stage at the Oct. 2 awards ceremony. Each winner will receive a statuette reminiscent of the one given to winners at the “Oscars.”
Tickets to the event are $30 each and 100 percent of the ticket sales will benefit Banner Health Foundation/Cardon Children’s Medical Center.
