CKP Insurance Gives Back to the Annual Silver and Turquoise Ball Supporting the Phoenix Indian Center

Each year, guests and volunteers of the Silver and Turquoise Ball come together to celebrate this special event honoring the resilience of Indigenous people and supporting important work that is done within the urban American Indian population here in Phoenix. This year’s event took place on October 12, 2022, and the theme was “Celebrating Our History, Honoring the People”, which was more than fitting considering it is also the 75th Anniversary of the Phoenix Indian Center. Our partners over at CKP Insurance have played a large part in giving back to this event over the last couple of years and were thrilled to once again be a part of it. Read the full story here.
