Pickle Palooza 2024: Rallying with Impact

On April 18th, 2024, Intermountain rallied the Tucson community together for an evening of fun, purpose, and the nation's favorite game: pickleball! We took over the historic Tucson restaurant Corbett's where attendees savored culinary delights, imbibed delicious beverages, and tested their hand at a game (or four) on the courts. The incredible coaches from ALL-IN Youth Pickleball were circulating on every court, supporting teams with tips and feedback in a fun, relaxed style.

The ambiance of the night was rounded off with the quality live entertainment from Baja Caravan and Desert Music Project, as well as the silent auction featuring some truly one-of-a-kind items including a signed Rolling Stones guitar, international vacations, sports legends memorabilia, and so much more. We even had an onsite bourbon and whiskey draw, with the grand prize being a full Blanton’s set!

Without question, the most impactful aspect of the night was the mission-focused element. All funds raised went to support Intermountain's workforce development programs, benefiting young adults aging out of foster care and youth with disabilities. Your generous attendance, bids, and donations raised nearly $105,000!

We’re busily planning the theme, but whatever it is, we promise it will be fun, filled with incredible entertainment, and brimming with purpose. Thank you for making our dreams for a better Arizona a reality!
