Karma Kids Yoga Kamp

Finding unique activities for the kids during the Arizona summers can be a challenge. But one Valley yoga studio has a fit and fun alternative to another round of video games. From 12 to 1 p.m. every Wednesday throughout the month of July, Sumits Yoga North Phoenix will host Karma Kids Kamp. This unique yoga camp is intended to help parents and children ages six to 14 connect and communicate with one another while introducing youngsters to the many health and lifestyle benefits of yoga.

“What we’ve created with Karma Kids Kamp is a pressure-free setting where beginners can feel comfortable, even if it’s their first time ever setting foot in a studio,” says Ashley Zetter, owner, adding that although Sumits typically teaches hot yoga, for this session, the heat will be off, and the air conditioning, up. “We’ll save the hot yoga for another session.”

Existing Sumits Yoga members are encouraged to attend as part of their membership. Non-members may purchase a day pass for $18, or a two-week pass for $20, while kids are admitted free of charge with a parent. www.sumitsnorthphoenix.com.


Phoenix Dream Center Moves Survivors into New Dream Rooms


On Saturday June 21 The Phoenix Dream Center hosted an extremely successful grand debut of their brand new six Dream Rooms. The Rescue Project, the flagship program of the Phoenix Dream Center, is a national leader in the rescue, recovery and advocacy of human trafficking survivors.

Last fall, six Dream Teams, made up of some of the Valley's top builders, architects and interior designers committed their time and services to help human trafficking survivors in crisis pregnancy situations.  

The Dream Center is proud to announce that today the City of Phoenix issued the certificate of occupancy so that the very special ladies in the program can move into their newly completed Dream Rooms.

Push for Holiday Blood Donors

blood services

United Blood Services has partnered with 12 News, The Arizona Republic, 17 Valley radio stations and community sponsors to ask you to give blood June 24 to July 5, as the two weeks surrounding July 4 have traditionally been the most difficult to meet patient blood needs. The need for blood donors has escalated since the beginning of the vacation season, especially for type O-negative, the universal blood type required primarily by emergency and trauma patients, and also used in life-saving transfusions in premature babies.  

Donors at six Valley donor centers will be thanked with a voucher for a free Whataburger and be entered into six daily raffles for a pair of tickets on the Grand Canyon Railway. All donors will also be automatically entered in the summer raffle to win a 2014 Passat S, donated by your Valley Volkswagen dealers.

On July 5 at Saving Arizona, Arizona’s largest blood drive, a donor will be drawn as one of the 10 finalists for the Volkswagen Passat S. For an appointment and learn dates, times and donation locations, call 1-877-UBS-HERO (1-877-827-4376) or visit www.BloodHero.com.

As Rosewood Homes unveiled Rosewood Village in the Ahwatukee Foothills, 800 prospective buyers and neighbors toured the luxury single-family residences in the new gated community.

These well-appointed, energy efficient residences range in size from approximately 1,700 to 2,400 square feet with two bedrooms plus loft to four bedrooms; 2 ½ to three baths; and two-car garages with prices from the low $280’s to the $300’s. The new neighborhood is also notable for its use of oak “street trees” and a choice of Spanish Colonial, Italian and European Country styles. Rosewood is also nearing completion of a private recreation area for the exclusive use of Rosewood Village residents and their guests. This new facility features a resort-style swimming pool, covered pool-side cabanas, barbecue grill, fire pit as well as an event lawn for family activities and neighborhood gatherings.

“Our new neighborhood has been so well received that we’ve already sold the first 10 homes,” says David Kitnick, president and founder of Rosewood Homes. “It’s exciting to see the enthusiasm that people have for our new neighborhood where well-detailed homes are priced from the low $280’s to $300’s in such a fabulous location with such wonderful neighborhood amenities.” www.rosewoodhomes.com.
