DELIA'S Cleaners is delighted to share some wonderful news a much anticipated Phoenix event. UMOM's 8th Annual Buckles & Bangles Dinner Gala will be held Friday, November 3 at the JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn in Scottsdale.

Putting the Fun in Fundraiser

This annual gala features the finest food, exciting auctions, and dancing. The event raises money in order to help end homelessness in Phoenix. The festivities begin with a cocktail reception at 6:00 p.m. Dinner, a short program, and dancing to the live music of Mogollon follow. The fun includes mechanical bull rides and both a silent and live auction with   travel, entertainment, jewelry, and other prizes.

A highlight of the evening is the Wine Pull fundraiser. Guests purchase a bottle of wine wrapped in paper to hide the label. Once they receive their wine, they remove the wrapper to see what they've won.

One of Phoenix's most popular local bands, Mogollon (pronounced Mug-E-on), is returning for an encore performance. Mogollon started as a high school band in the small town of Overgaard in Northeastern Arizona. Today, the band is known as a premier country rock group throughout the West. They have a diverse repertoire, playing music ranging from Hank Williams to Pink Floyd. They also write and perform their own songs.

Tickets and sponsorships are still available. For more information, visit UMOM's website.
