Arizona Advocacy's Roast of Congressman Ruben Gallego

April 28, 2016

Phoenix, AZ - Arizona Advocacy Network, Arizona’s premier citizens’ rights advocacy organization, is excited to announce the details of its 2016 signature event, the Arizona Advocacy Roast of Congressman Ruben Gallego.

The event will take place on Friday, June 17, at Club Downtown, which is located on the west side of Central Avenue at Pierce Street. Known by many as the former Amsterdam, Club Downtown is just one of many venues on this property (operated by Live on Central) which will soon include the only 24-hour Steampunk-themed coffee house/café in the state (and possibly anywhere).

We are delighted that Mr. Gallego, who is in his first term representing Arizona’s 7th congressional district and serves on the House Armed Services Committee and the Committee on Natural Resources, has agreed to take part in this unique signature event, which represents a departure from the many enjoyable events of Arizona Advocacy’s past.

“The issues we deal with every day are sobering,” says Juli Myers, Development Director for Arizona Advocacy, “from violations of the integrity of our electoral process to working to strengthen the voter-mandated Clean Elections process, and we want to give our supporters, ally organizations, and the community a few hours of fun in the midst of these serious battles.”

The evening will begin at 6:15 with a VIP tasting of some special creations by the chefs from Live on Central, and the doors will open at 7:00 for an hour of cocktails that features a specially created Build Your Own Street Taco Bar. Emceed by the peerless Barbra Seville, the roast will begin promptly at 8:00 and will be followed by the opening of the dance floor by Live on Central’s DJ from 9:00 to 11:00.
