Chandler Mayor and Chandler-Gilbert Community College co-host annual East Valley Mayors’ Prayer Breakfast

Chandler Mayor Jay Tibshraeny and Chandler-Gilbert Community College (CGCC) will co-host this year’s East Valley Mayors’ Prayer Breakfast. The annual event will be held from 7-9:30 a.m., Wednesday, March 16, at the CGCC Coyote Center, 2626 E. Pecos Road.\

Now in its sixth year, the event brings together East Valley Mayors and active leaders of the faith-based community, government, businesses and nonprofits who work side-by-side to address human service needs in the area.

“This annual event offers a morning of reflection and inspiration,” said Mayor Tibshraeny. “Leaders from the East Valley community come together and share new ideas to make our region a better place.”

During the breakfast, Roc Arnett, former president and CEO of the East Valley Partnership for the past 13 years, will be honored with the 2016 Leaders of Faith Lifetime Achievement Award. Together, the group will share a moment to pray for the safety and well-being of the community, police and firefighters, neighborhoods and those in need. The event also will include a brainstorming session of community needs and service ideas for participating cities and towns, which include Mesa, Scottsdale, Tempe, Gilbert, Queen Creek, Apache Junction, Fountain Hills, Paradise Valley and Cave Creek.

This year’s event theme is “Strong Partnerships, Strong Communities.” The breakfast is open to the public. Individual tickets are $40 and available for purchase online at evmpb.org. Tables of 10 also are available for $600 (early bird pricing before Sunday, Jan 31, 2016). After Jan. 31, the price for a table of 10 will be $750.
