Justice Sandra Day O’Connor

The Sixth annual Supreme Evening was held on Friday April 4th at the Montelucia Resort and Spa. The event was chaired by Tracy Bame and Kari Yatkowksi while the honorary chairman was Jerry Hirsch. The Evening at the Lazy B Ranch is a tribute to the childhood ranch of retired United States Supreme Court Associate Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.

Justice O’Connor stated that the vision of the O’Connor house is to re-create a place that will be a center for problem-solving and bringing together groups with divergent views.

The O’Connor house is used to facilitate collaboration, constructive dialog and bring important issues to the table such as reducing domestic violence, greater legal services to victims, combating sexual exploitation of children and improving low voter turnout in Arizona.

The evening was a who’s who and many of the valley’s A-listers were in attendance. Also seating next to Justice O’Connor was our own Governor Jan Brewer.

The décor and table decorations were something right out of the Wild West. Those in attendance adorned their best country and western attire. Executive Chef Michael Cairns cooked up some fabulous cowboy chow to stay

Guests were treated to entertainment by Tucson’s Andy Hershey and the O’Connor Boys as they enjoyed dinner and dancing.
