McDowell Village 10 year anniversary event celebration Jan. 16

McDowell Village is hosting its 10 year anniversary with a big celebration on Saturday, Jan. 16, at 8300 E. McDowell Road and it’s inviting the public to join in on the fun.

Events include a classic car show, two live bands, food trucks vendor booths, a kid zone with games, rides, a petting zoo and more. All proceeds from the event will go to a charity for veterans and the American Service Animal Society.

The classic car show will be a major portion of the event and McDowell Village is looking for more entries to the show. This is an opportunity for classic cars to be shown with no registration fee, according to a press release.

In addition, the first 20 returned entries will receive a participation plaque, two free lunches and free water. Judges will be awarding trophies at the end of the event.

McDowell Village wants to bring the residents, families of the residents, staff and the community together to celebrate 10 years of excellence in Scottsdale.

McDowell Village was developed by Phoenix based Opus West Corporation in 2006 and was acquired by WESTliving, LLC in February 2010. Initially the community was successful as a senior apartment community without assisted living services, but when WESTliving, LLC came in they transformed 40 of the 197-units into assisted living care.

“We believe that integrated levels of care and support services provide for the resident-focused operation in our communities” stated John Rimbach, president of WESTliving, LLC, in the release.

Being a prominent member of the Scottsdale community, McDowell Village has been highly recognized over the years. McDowell Village has received numerous awards in their 10 years. In 2012 they won The Sterling Award, one of the most coveted business awards in the Scottsdale Valley, stated the release.
