Biz Build Up Featuring Senator Kyrsten Sinema

We invite you to join the 6 West Valley Chambers of Commerce for this special Biz Build Up featuring Senator Kyrsten Sinema. This FREE, virtual event will feature a federal level update from Senator Sinema and some time for questions.

Questions can be submitted for consideration with your registration before close of business May 7.

Senator Kyrsten Sinema's Bio:
Kyrsten knows firsthand the challenges everyday Arizonans face. Born in Tucson, Kyrsten went through some tough times growing up. Her family struggled to make ends meet, and for a while they were even homeless. But they got by thanks to family, church, and hard work. Kyrsten’s childhood experience showed her the power of hard work and the importance of helping others.

Education was Kyrsten’s ticket to a better life. With the help of student loans, academic scholarships, and financial aid, she went to BYU and then ASU, where she now teaches as a proud Sun Devil.
After graduating, she worked with students and families in Arizona who faced some of the same challenges she did. Kyrsten’s commitment to service led her to the Arizona Legislature, where she passed a law to help veterans get in–state tuition at all Arizona public universities, cracked down on sex trafficking, and advocated for children’s health care and education.

Now as Arizona's senior Senator, Kyrsten works every day to deliver for Arizona families – helping veterans get the benefits they’ve earned, creating good–paying jobs for Arizonans, and keeping Americans safe at home and abroad.

Kyrsten feels a duty to serve and give back to the communities and country that gave her so much. She got her shot at the American dream, and she’ll keep working to make sure all Arizonans get theirs too.

The Maverick Golf Tournament

Celebrating its 7th season, ‘The Maverick’ has become the West Valley’s top annual charity golf tournament.  Year after year, the tournament is filled with supporters, avid golfers, business owners, and those just looking to have a good time.  They look forward to teeing off for a day filled with fun, networking, camaraderie, and excellent golfing conditions, all while raising money for West Valley charities.

‘The Maverick’ golf tournament was created with the vision to raise money for West Valley charities.  Initially hosted at the Wigwam Golf Resort on only one course, the demand to play ‘The Maverick’ grew quickly as patrons immediately re-registered simply because this was a tournament like no other that they had played in.  The following three years, the tournament quickly expanded to capacity on all three of the Wigwam’s top courses and continues to sell out. This year, we will host the event on the Blue and Gold courses at the Wigwam.

‘The Maverick’ has become valley golfer’s top charity golf tournament of choice simply because 100% of the net proceeds are donated back to West Valley charities.  Golfers enjoy the “VIP all-inclusive feel” of ‘The Maverick’.  ‘The Maverick’ swag bag is now a featured talking point of the golf tournament as each golfer receives an extensive amount of value upon arrival.  The highlight of ‘The Maverick’ is that all food, beverages, and dinners (plus spouse/guest) are included with your registration, providing an authentic and elite golfing experience.
