Milena and Tony Astorga – who recently retired from his position as senior vice president, CFO and chief business development officer of Blue Cross Blue Shield – have agreed to chair the Catholic Community Foundation’s 2012 Crozier Gala.
Now in its 24th year, the fundraising event will be held for the first time in downtown Phoenix on Saturday, April 14, 2012. A reception will be hosted in the plaza of the Diocesan Pastoral Center, followed by dinner, entertainment and dancing in the North Ballroom of the Phoenix Convention Center.
The Crozier Gala has raised over $3 million over the years to support the Catholic Community Foundation, an independent nonprofit organization that serves families and individuals in their charitable giving and fosters philanthropy in support of the mission of the Roman Catholic Church.
The Astorgas are active philanthropists. Tony serves on various boards, including the Arizona Community Foundation, ASU Foundation and currently serves as the board chairman of the Arizona Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Milena is a master docent at the Phoenix Art Museum and has served on the board of Friends of European Art. She has worked with several charitable organizations that educate and benefit children in our community, including the Assistance League of Phoenix and the Mexican Cultural Center. The Astorgas were recently honored by the Phoenix Art Museum with the 2011 Exemplary Service Award.
