CJ Soto Benefit Golf Tournament

We Care In Anthem would like our supporters know about the CJ Soto Benefit Golf Tournament at the Trilogy Golf Club at Vistancia on July 24. We invite you to play, donate or consider a sponsorship.

The following is from the Trilogy Golf Club web site:

CJ is a 13 year old junior golfer who is part of our Vistancia Varmints JR Golf Program. CJ’s grandfather, Jim, works at the course and is considered one of our best team members. Tragically, CJ has recently been diagnosed with a sub acute hepatitis liver failure phase 2, along with valley fever.

After extensive testing at the Children’s Hospital, CJ was transferred by ambulance to the University Medical Center in Tucson. He has spent the last three weeks recovering from the valley fever and undergoing more testing regarding his failing liver.

CJ will spend at least the next four weeks in Tucson to determine if there is any improvement with his liver. If not, he will be put on the transplant list. Medical bills for the family have already passed the $100,000 mark, much of which is not covered by insurance.

In an effort to help the family, Trilogy Golf Club would like you to partner with us in this benefit golf tournament to be held on Friday, July 24th. Please participate by playing, sponsoring, or volunteering for this worthy event.

Pure Child Photography Supports We Care

Pure Child Photography will be an exhibitor at the 10th Annual Anthem Days being held April 4 and 5. Drop by to see her distinctive style of photography, schedule a pre-session consultation, and sign up for the new PureBaby (birth-12 months) and PureChildhood (18 month-5 years) Collections.

Miki DeVivo has always been involved with children and the arts. When she decided to start a business several years ago, she wanted to find a way to meld her two loves, so she put her artistic vision to work and Pure Child Photography was born.

Miki also wanted to support a cause that benefits children. “Working with We Care in Anthem is a wonderful opportunity to give back to the community that has given me so much,” says Miki. And so she created the “Download & Donate” program.

After photographing children at special events, such as Anthem Days, Miki posts the images to her blog www.purechildphotography.com. When visitors to the blog purchase and download images, a portion of the proceeds is donated to We Care In Anthem.

Miki DeVivo’s style is contemporary photojournalism. While she does interact with her subjects by providing guidance and encouragement, she prefers the effortless expressions of kids just being kids. As children play, the camera is forgotten and true personalities shine through. “I enjoy using natural light and a familiar environment,” she says.

Pure Child Photography’s mission is to remind you of the pure joy of being a parent. Life moves so quickly that sometimes we forget to slow down and take notice of the miracles that are right in front of us. A session with Pure Child Photography is an opportunity to put aside life’s fast pace and to relax in the company of those closest to you. Your images will preserve those little moments that reveal a priceless work of art: your family.
