The Cardinals and team President MICHAEL BIDWILL will receive the "West Valley Regional Advancement Award" from Western Maricopa Coalition.
The award will be presented at the 21st Best of the West Awards being held this evening at the Wigwam Resort in Litchfield Park.
"The support Michael Bidwill and the Arizona Cardinals have shown for the West Valley is extraordinary," said Bradley Wright, Chairman of WESTMARC's Board of Directors. "Since the opening of University of Phoenix Stadium in 2006, the Cardinals have sold out every one of its home games and have brought nearly 5 million Arizonans and out-of-state visitors to the West Valley. This past summer, the team successfully staged its inaugural training camp at the stadium and brought thousands more. In less than a year and a half the Super Bowl is returning to University of Phoenix Stadium bringing to our region an economic impact of $500 million."
WESTMARC was founded in 1990 to promote a positive image for Western Maricopa County and to advocate on its behalf in matters of public policy.
