The Cool on the Hill

Of the 33 designated Phoenix Points of Pride, the Wrigley Mansion is number 30. We think that's an undersell. Peaking the meridian of its own 100-foot hillock, it's a measure of one rich man's love for his wife, but ask SWAY Events founder and frontman Gary Guerin, and he imagines a Summer Chill concert and ball-busting good time. (Okay, his exact words were "a fun, cosmopolitan evening," but we're sluts.) Headlining the fete is A&M recording artist and ex-Miss Black Arizona CeCe Peniston, who’ll give the fun, cosmopolitan crowd a reason to disco-dance. Also on the bill of fare are booze and hors d'oeuvres, the comedy stylings of Kirsten & Rick, and the hot boys of Sisterzz Twisted.
