Celebrate the men in your life.

This month we recognize the men in our lives — fathers, grandfathers, brothers, sons, uncles and husbands. We pay tribute to these special men who made lasting impacts on our lives and continue to inspire us every day.

In this issue you’ll get to know Arizona Diamondbacks President and CEO Derrick Hall. He openly shares his personal journey through his battle with prostate cancer, and explains how he is utilizing his professional platform to encourage early testing and diagnosis. He is certainly motivating those with prostate cancer, along with their families, to maintain a “pro” state of mind.

If you’re a beer drinker, you’ll enjoy learning about Arizona Brewery Tours, a locally-owned father-and-son team who provide tours, tastings, pairings and education about the growing craft beer industry. This duo not only found their passion but is helping Arizona truly become a beer destination.

Your mouth may start watering while reading our Hot Spot. This month we feature Cold Beers & Cheeseburgers, a new neighborhood destination where you can catch a game and choose from 16 award-winning burgers and 40 beers on tap. Definitely a must for any guy!

We spotlight the Chandler Firefighter Charities, everyday heroes who go above and beyond to give back and support those in need. Through monetary donations, workplaces giving campaigns and an annual golf tournament, these firefighters are actively finding ways to raise funds to positively impact Chandler families.

Finally, you’ll meet Chandler High School special education teacher and Special Olympics coach Andrew Valuikas. Andrew has dedicated his life to helping students feel welcome in and outside the classroom. You’ll understand why he is committed to making sure smiles are happening every single day. Andrew is truly an inspiration.

This issue is a must read for all the men in your life.

All of us at Chandler Lifestyle want to wish every dad a very happy Father’s Day!
