The West Valley Mavericks Foundation
The West Valley Mavericks Foundation was born of the imagination and vision of a group of community leaders late in 2012. The West Valley Mavericks (or just ‘Mavericks’) is a group led by gentlemen who believe that the West Valley is an incredible place to live, work, play, and call home. The Mavericks’ charter is to advance charity, culture, community, and commerce in the West Valley of Phoenix, Arizona. The group’s membership hails from a diverse set of trades & professions and includes men from all manner of backgrounds and philosophies.
The West Valley Mavericks Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. It is our mission to assist children and families, help people in need, and improve the quality of life in our West Valley communities.
As an organization, we use individual contributions, fundraising events, sponsorship, ticket sales, donations, as well as hands-on community service to raise money and support numerous West Valley charities. The West Valley Mavericks Foundation works closely with dozens of local organizations, individuals, as well as generous business sponsors to achieve our mission of supporting the West Valley .

Mavericks’ Childspree @ Kohl’s
Each fall the West Valley Mavericks partner with organizations such as Homeless Youth Connection, Boys and Girls Clubs, and Mercy House to support local children in need. During this time the Mavericks assist over one hundred-fifty disadvantaged children with their back-to-school shopping at Kohl’s. With the support of generous sponsors, Kohl’s, and West Valley Mavericks Foundation, each child is able to spend at least $100, and in total, over $15,000 of goods are purchased for local youth. Childspree is a remarkable experience for Mavericks’ families, volunteers, and participants.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions this year’s event will be split into smaller events.

Avondale – Billy Moore Days – Virtual – October 12-17, 2020
When you ask most longtime Avondale residents about their memories growing up here, many of them will inevitably mention Billy Moore Days – a tradition named after Avondale’s founder, and celebrated for more than five decades in Avondale.
BILLY MOORE DAYS IS GOING VIRTUAL!
With the community’s safety in mind, the City of Avondale has made the difficult decision to transition Billy Moore Day to a virtual event this year. Small groups and virtual activities will take place to celebrate Avondale’s heritage October 12 – 17. The street festival, carnival and parade that were previously planned have been canceled.
