The Child Crisis Center (CCC) provides educational and developmental resources for families, operates the Arizona Adoption & Foster Care program, and runs an emergency shelter for abused, abandoned, and neglected children.
Since it's inception in 1981, the CCC has housed more than 12,700 children from infancy to age 11. The shelter now contains 42 beds and houses 300–350 children every year. Young guests get a warm place to sleep, meals and snacks, and meaningful recreational and educational activities, including regular homework time and opportunities to play outdoors.
Dan and Tim Flanigan created Flanigan Entertainment that bears their name in order to quench beer enthusiasts' thirst while supporting worthy causes. Their Beat the Heat WinterFest brings a much-needed frosty edge to summertime in Arizona, and the Spring Swing Beer Bash kicks off baseball season with cold glassfuls of hoppy, wheaty, and malty goodness. The duo's festivals showcase local and internationally renowned breweries, from Phoenix's own Old World Brewery and Phoenix Ale Brewery to Stella Artois and Hoegaarden Brewery. The team's Blue Collar Beer and Music Festival is a collaboration done in conjunction with Trick Entertainment. The event was created to honor and celebrate the beers and music that are the cornerstone's of America.
Their past events, which have benefitted children's charities, have been held at the 30,000-square-foot Arizona Event Center and The Venue Scottsdale, whose stone walls, chandeliers, and retractable roof resemble the medieval football stadiums of yore.
Imagined and founded by country singer-songwriter Toby Keith, Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill combines Southern-style eats with mason jars full of beer, plus daisy-duke-clad waitresses pouring top-shelf whiskeys. This all takes place beneath complex light and sound systems for the restaurant's full-on concert stage. The staff keeps the calendar stocked with events, hosting sports nights, poker tournaments, karaoke, and live bands such as Due West and Colt Ford. Performers croon, their guitars twang, and the lights dim to shades of purple, blue, and red—colors scientifically proven to make mediocre dancers look like Russian ballet stars.
When both the plasma-screen TVs and stage lie dormant, the entertainment continues aboard the bar's mechanical bull, appropriately dubbed “Toby.” Even ordering a drink comes with the thrill of sidling up to the 85-foot, guitar-shaped bar, originally intended to be strummed by a giant robot Elvis.
