Giving back to the community that I live in and causes that are close to home has always been a mission I wanted to incorporate into my life…. And now I’m lucky enough to use my business as a vehicle to help even more!
While large charity umbrellas are important, I LOVE to support LOCAL CHARITABLE CAUSES so everyone can see the faces, paws and causes that they are helping firsthand.Below is a list of some of the upcoming events AMG is helping with to raise money for LOCAL CHARITIES!
Join us at Horses Help Ranch for an Easter Egg Hunt, Riding Demonstration, Pancake Breakfast, BBQ lunch and Fun For The Whole Family!
HORSES HELP is a premier accredited therapeutic and recreational agency that serves the special needs population by providing activities to empower them to break through physical, cognitive and emotional barriers using a unique collaboration of horses and people within Arizona’s “Valley of the Sun”
AMG is helping to send off Miss Arizona 2012 Erika Frantzve to the Miss USA Pageant in style… and Raise Money for Charity!
Erika is hosting a Send-Off Party to say thank you to all who have supported her AND to raise additional funds for her charitable platform, Everyday Heroes Like You. For details on the party held at The W on April 26th, you can check out the Facebook Event created here. Would love to see everyone come out to Mix N Mingle with some very fashionable (and charitable) peeps while helping to raise money for Erika’s own non-profit she started to help a variety of charitable causes. Her most notable charity, Everyday Heroes Like You, has a program called Johnny’s Locker that is definitely worth consideration when making your next tax deductible donation…
Everyday Heroes Like You, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that assists nonprofits throughout the country. Our vocation is to promote and propagate the “everyday heroes” in our communities that have a philanthropic desire to truly make a difference. Incorporated in 2007, Everyday Heroes Like You immediately took flight with numerous projects all over the country. CEO and founder, Erika Frantzve, has made it her mission to live out her calling and touch the lives of others by promoting various charitable foundations. Our passion is not limited to any specific category of charities, we support the “heroes” who strive to leave their fingerprints on the hearts and lives of others.
COMING IN MAY… AMG’s BIGGEST CHARITY EVENT TO DATE!
I have sat on the B&G Club of Metro Org Board for over 4 years now and have helped execute numerous fundraising events to benefit the Club Kids in need in the Phoenix area. The Big Event is our largest fundraiser of the year and by far has the greatest impact on our board members, the Clubs & Kids and on all the amazing community members that attend the event.
We are hosting the event in a bigger venue this year to accommodate all our growth… very exciting! We’ll have performances from the kids, amazing food vendors from all over the valley, great bar & liquor vendors, a silent auction & an exiting LIVE auction for those top dollar items.
The silent auction provides a HUGE source of revenue for this event, so if your business has any items that could be donated (tax deductible of course) we would greatly appreciate it! Anything from food/bar gift cards, hotel/spa stays & services, sports memorabilia & golf, wine tastings, fly away trips, events, and anything you could possibly think of!
Please contact Lindsey Beres at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have donation items. Get your tickets for the event here!

This year Change 4 Kids is helping Cardon Children’s Medical Center by sponsoring a Toy Closet for which will supply toys to patients for 12 months
Are you up for the Challenge?
