NiteFlite Gala

Prepare for a night of glitz and glamour at the 27th annual NiteFlite Gala hosted by the Scottsdale Active 20-30 Club. The highly anticipated semi-formal event will be held Saturday, October 15, in the Entertainment District of Old Town Scottsdale at 6:30 p.m. More than 2,500 people are expected to mingle in and around Hi-Fi Kitchen and Cocktails, Bottled Blonde and The District. The gala will feature break dancers from Bboy Gravity, speed painter Randall Hedden, magician Shawn Eric, music from the band SuperHero and food from local restaurants such as Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, Melting Pot, Even Stevens Sandwiches, SOL Mexican Cocina, The Park and Sprinkles Cupcakes. A raffle drawing throughout the night includes prize packages such as a trip to Sonoma, Cabo and Rocky Point—all while benefitting more than a dozen local children’s charities including the event’s primary charity partner, Playworks. Playworks is a nonprofit that partners with elementary schools to create a place for every kid on the playground—a place where every kid belongs. Tickets for the gala are $150 and can be purchased here.
