Arizona Foothills Magazine is proud to host the Women Who Move the City luncheon at Loews Ventana Canyon Resort on May 16th.  The event will honor 10 of Tucson’s outstanding women, representing a variety of local organizations from charities, arts, education and social media. Resort-style retirement community Splendido is the event’s title sponsor.  The gold standard in adult living, Splendido has embraced the Tucson community. Through on going education, they are showing how their brand of adult lifestyle truly does “make neighborhoods better places for older adults to live, work, learn, contribute, and play.”

As the founder and face of “Mrs.Green’s World” Gina educates listeners on all things “green” during her popular weekly radio broadcast.  Her community involvement ranges from President and Co-founder of Providence Service Corporation to founder of Strength Building Partners, a local child mentoring program. She is both a passionate advocate for our children and Mother Earth!
