For 32 years, the Palo Verde Kiwanis Club sponsored a fall event raising in excess of $300,000 for Tucson charities. In 1994, when the club ceased to operate, PICOR formed a foundation to enable this endeavor to continue for years to come. The 2012 event will be held October 14th in Tucson's Reid Park at Ramada #1 from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm with performances by the Tucson Girls Chorus and youth Mariachi performers. Three bucks buys a full breakfast with all-you-can-eat pancakes, plus sausage and milk, with coffee donated and served by Starbucks. Of course, we're happy to take additional donations for the kids in any amount.
PICOR Connect | Trends in Commercial Real Estate
After an extensive recessionary period when ‘uncertainty’ was the ruling word, Tucson’s commercial real estate sectors have settled into a sense of stability that signals firming fundamentals and a somewhat painfully slow return to market balance. Limited meaningful job creation remains the largest hurdle to overcome, with health care uncertainty and the impending presidential and congressional elections contributing to a cautious business climate. Some meaningful growth continues in Tucson’s medical sector, with economies of scale, more favorable locations, and proximity to health care centers fostering movement.
