100 Club 911 Challenge
To remember those who lost their lives on 9/11 and to continue to honor first responders and military who protect us, hundreds will join in on Wednesday for the 9/11 Tower Challenge at Gila River Arena in Glendale. The recipients of the money raised, the 100 club of Arizona and the Fighter Country Partnership join us to talk about how important this fundraiser is for them and how folks can participate... There were 110 floors and 2,071 steps in each of the Twin Towers when the buildings collapsed on Sept. 11, 2001. Photographs of fallen heroes will line the stairs during the challenge, giving participants the opportunity to acknowledge those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service of others.

Jaime's Local Love: Knee Deep Denim
Knee Deep Denim is a Woman Owned, 7-year-old, Arizona-based clothing company. Just opening up a location in Scottsdale Fashion Square, they are going neck and neck with the big wigs. They are a "small business" in every sense of the word, and are very proud to hold that title here in Arizona.
KDD specializes in reworking some biker babe/ rock 'n' roll/ vibes into old school T-shirts. The young brand claims to love AZ so much so, that they didn't want to share manufacturing with Los Angeles or China. Knee Deep Denim has been around since 2012, so they know a thing or two about customer service, keeping up with trends, and rewarding return customers by keeping good relationships.
One of the most exciting parts is sourcing all the vintage tees, jeans, jackets, and sweaters that are one-of-a-kind just for you. They are really picky, so you don't have to be. They carry sizes 00-17 as part of an early decision to provide clothes to all sizes. This has been a focal point throughout the years. You really do have your new favorite item once you leave Knee Deep Denim.
