Community Impact

Being involved in our community is very important to Merestone. By working with the community we are able to stay in the know with the important changes in businesses, trends, and economic times. Enjoying what we do is easy when we are able to give back.

It was a HOT night in old town at the Backstage Bash hosted by Chester’s Harley-Davidson! Chester’s went to Merestone for the entire production of the festival—planning, layouts, entertainment coordination, sound and lighting.

Live country music by David Allen Coe, Rowdy Johnson Band, and Doublewide kept the crowd rocking, along with carnival games, food and much more with all proceeds to benefit Liberty Wildlife.

Scottsdale Chamber Lunch
The Scottsdale Chamber of Commerce has worked hard to support many businesses over the years, one of those being Merestone. Merestone in turn has found it quite rewarding to return the favor by being a key sponsor to many of their events throughout the year, as well as donating the time from Merestone’s very own President, Camille Hill that sits on the Scottsdale Chamber’s Board of Directors. Merestone underwrites all the production support for the Chamber. This is the Chamber’s annual Women in Leadership Luncheon. It is dedicated to educating professional working women and celebrating success.
