The Arizona Humane Society is thrilled to be in the race and thanks to you, we made it to phase 2! Just think of all the homeless, sick, and abused pets we can help with such a generous contribution.

Brothers Ike and Eddie Basha Sr. opened the first Bashas’ supermarket in 1932 just outside of Chandler. Since then, their market has been part of the fabric of Arizona, which now boasts more than 100 stores statewide under multiple banners.

This summer, the friendly neighborhood grocer celebrates its 90th anniversary, and in honor of this momentous milestone, Bashas’ is donating $50,000 to the winner of their Community Choice Charity Challenge.

“We are honored to celebrate our 90th anniversary with our team members, customers, vendors, and charity partners,” said Edward “Trey” Basha, president of Bashas’ and grandson of one of the company’s founders. “I’d like to give a heartfelt thank you to everyone for their continued support. Our goal is to express our gratitude and use this milestone as an opportunity to be of additional service to our communities.”

The Arizona Humane Society is thrilled to be in the race. Just think of all the homeless, sick, and abused pets we can help with such a generous contribution.
