Vice President of Business Development for City Brand Media and, Christina Wagner says, “I am thrilled to celebrate my birthday with personal, professional and networking friends while benefitting Child Crisis Arizona. I recently toured the Child Crisis campus in Mesa. I was so touched by all of the stories about the children who come to the organization and how Child Crisis helps them with all of their needs. I was also inspired by how Child Crisis helps so many families when they find themselves in very challenging situations.”

Wagner continues, “I was very excited when I heard that Chef Eddie Matney was opening his doors to us for my birthday networking event, and toys and supplies drive. I have long admired his culinary prowess and everyone that attends will get to experience just why Chef Eddie is so amazing. A few years ago I did a toy drive for Child Crisis and it was a big success! I want to make it even bigger and better this year for all of their wonderful kids.”
