Save the Date – Free Living Trust Seminar

Friday, Oct. 14, Lakeview Room, 10 a.m.

Planning Is Essential—Do You Have a Plan? Everyone should attend this seminar, even if you have a Will or a Trust. A good estate plan coordinates what happens to your home, savings, investments, and retirement accounts. Learn how to appoint someone to make healthcare and financial decisions for you when you are unable to do so. If you do not, a court may decide for you. Why a Will is not enough. Why many people with Living Trusts will end up in probate. Learn how to avoid it. If you have your plans finalized, find out what may have changed, needs updating, or is still applicable in Arizona. Guests will have an opportunity for questions after the seminar with Attorney Richard M. Dwornik. Presented by Dwornik Law Firm. You must RSVP to reserve your seat. There is limited seating. To RSVP, call 480-809-1014 or email [email protected].

Save the Date – TAD Management presents Candle in The Wind – The Elton John Experience

Tuesday, Oct. 18, Ballroom, 7 p.m.

National touring tribute artist Candle in The Wind, The Elton John Experience, performs the ultimate tribute to the music of Elton and his songwriting partner Bernie Taupin. The band spotlights Elton and Bernie’s earlier classic songs, but also touches on the selections from later eras. Jeff Burkett, as Sir Elton John, brings a truly authentic portrayal of the iconic artist and his music to the stage, as well as an uncanny resemblance to Elton himself. As a fan of Elton’s music since the early age of 12, Jeff aspired to become a successful singer/pianist/songwriter after hearing Elton John’s Goodbye Yellow Brick Road album. It remains his favorite to this day. “The music is absolutely incredible. But it is also the heartfelt, often surreal imagery of Taupin’s lyrics set to Elton’s unique piano and vocal stylings that tell these amazing stories best,” Jeff explains. “My and the band’s mission is to thoroughly recreate the Elton John concert experience to the level or degree that after the show, fans truly feel as if they just saw Elton himself perform.” Tickets are available Sept. 7.
