Make-A-Wish Arizona, the state chapter of the international wish granting organization, recently elected Jennifer Moser, co-founder and principal of Rose+Moser+Allyn Public and Online Relations, as the new Chair of the Make-A-Wish Arizona Board of Directors.

Ms. Moser has been on the Make-A-Wish Arizona board for four years. During that time, she helped to grow the chapter’s signature event, Wish Ball, more than doubling the number of attendees and the dollars raised in her three years as co-chair.

“Jennifer’s leadership has introduced our mission to hundreds of new people through her creativity and her commitment to engineering a great event,” said Elizabeth Reich, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish Arizona, in a press release.  “We are excited to have her lead us in the 2016-17 fiscal year as we work toward our vision of granting the wish of every eligible child in Arizona.”

With nearly 20 years of experience in public relations, marketing, event planning and business management, Ms. Moser is a recognized leader in her industry within the greater Phoenix area.

Her agency not only provides the public relations, marketing, and event planning work for which Ms. Moser is recognized, but also includes crisis management, government affairs and political consulting.

Ms. Moser has been active on non-profit boards throughout the valley for over a decade and in addition to Make-A-Wish Arizona, she currently sits on the Trends Charitable Fund board as past president and the board of directors as well as the executive board for the Arizona State University Sun Devil Club.

In addition to volunteering her time on endless nonprofit committees, she has chaired some of the top galas in town including Beach Ball for Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Garth Brooks Teaming up for Kids, Wish Ball for Make-A-Wish Arizona, Dinner with Wolves, Larry Fitzgerald’s Supper Club, The Knuckle Ball and Debbie Gaby’s Celebrity Catwalk.  She has also co-chaired committees for the past seven years for the Phoenix Heart Ball.

“Make-A-Wish was started right here in our valley and is now internationally known,” said Ms. Moser in the release.  “I am extremely honored and excited to be taking on the board leadership position of the local Arizona chapter and I look forward to helping our amazing board and staff grant a record-breaking number of wishes this year.”

Ms. Moser is joined on the executive committee by Vice Chair Rick Collins, Vice President of Development for Ryan Companies; Treasurer Todd Jarman of BBVA Compass; and, Secretary Nicole Pryde-Johnson of Lovitt & Touché.
