An evening of snazzy clothes, cocktails, art, music and fine dining could be fun for you — but crucial for some of Arizona’s struggling men, women and children.

The 30th annual Silver & Turquoise Ball and American Indian Art Auction returns Saturday, April 13, to Talking Stick Resort’s Salt River Grand Ballroom. Presented by the Phoenix Indian Center, it begins with a 5:30 p.m. cocktail hour and silent auction, followed by dinner and live entertainment.

Silent auction items include traditional and contemporary paintings, sculptures, jewelry and even a pair of hand-beaded black pumps.

Nephi Craig, executive chef of Sunrise Park Resort near Greer, will create the night’s menu, which includes dishes such as Western Apache charred pork shoulder posole and Ayacucho quinoa salad.

Mesa’s three-time Native American Music Award nominee Tony Duncan and his band, Estun-Bah, will perform.

Proceeds raised are an important part of the Phoenix Indian Center’s annual budget. The Center works to improve the health and well being of American Indian people via workforce development programs focusing on skill-building and cultural enrichment, as well as leadership, education and scholarship programs for youth.
