Russo and Steele’s 2020 Scottsdale RS Gala

For its 20th anniversary celebration, Russo and Steele Collector Automobile Auctions is bringing back the RS Gala on Wednesday, Jan. 15, from 6:30 to 10 p.m. on the auction grounds. Russo and Steele has partnered with Phoenix Children’s Hospital as the beneficiary for this event.

Russo and Steele chose Phoenix Children’s in part because it was one of the first charities that had partnered with the auction for their gala in years past. Having had history with the organization and truly standing behind its vital mission to bring medical treatment to children in need, it was only natural to reunite the partnership for Russo and Steele’s 20th Anniversary Gala.

“Phoenix Children’s is an incredible organization and we believe in their mission,” said co-owner of Russo and Steele, Josephine Alcazar. “Giving back to our community is what we are all about here at Russo and Steele and we couldn’t be more excited to host this event.”

Phoenix Children’s provides world-class inpatient, outpatient, trauma, emergency and urgent care to children and families in Arizona and throughout the Southwest. As one of the largest children’s hospitals in the country, Phoenix Children’s provides care across more than 75 pediatric specialties.

“Arizona becomes the center of the car world during this one week and Russo and Steele is hands down the most exciting auction,” said Steve Schnall, senior vice president and chief development officer at Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation. “We are grateful to Drew and Josephine for helping raise funds for Phoenix Children’s and couldn’t be more excited to partner once again for this gala.”

The RS Gala will be a night of glitz and glam for attendees. Festivities at the cocktail attire affair include, dancing, live music and both a silent and live auction. Guests will sample hors d’oeuvres from the Valley’s top chefs, including:
