My experience with Arizona Russian Center was excellent! They helped me to move for free, and collected and brought the furniture for me and my child for free. I never saw such help from Russian organization before. Since then I went to their events. New Year party and Children's Protection Day party were very nice organized, happy for everyone and very, very friendly. Thanks everyone, who volunteers for ARC!

I 'm a happy guest of Arizona Russian Center for several years. Many meetings with other Russian speaking people and Americans, who are interested in Russian culture were done by this organization in friendly and happy way. I'm very satisfied, and ready to go to their future events and activities! Thanks to ARC staff!

I appreciate this opportunity to express my gratitude for your mission connecting Russian people and keeping such an outstanding legacy of our national roots as tenderness, heartfullness and desire to help!
Thanks to the Arizona Russian Center I found not only a cosy room for staying in Phoenix for my 3-week professional courses in July, but new wonderful friends! I can’t stop amazing how it happened in the smoothest and easiest way when I applied to this site, so that I was immediately connected with a family with which we had so much of common interests!
It must be emphasized how helpful all those advices concerning the use of transport, location of stores, rules of conduct may be for each of new arrivals in Phoenix!
It is hard to overestimate this generous support and this sense of community!
I wish you new ideas and new achievements, increasing the number of participants, like-minded assistants and sponsors of this undoubtedly important and necessary charity!

I went to the new years celebration event held by the Arizona Russian Center and it was incredible! They really took their time and effort setting it all up so that it would be enjoyable to everyone. There was a patio outside where it was quite if anyone wished to go out, they had a great DJ playing a mix of Russian songs, they even had an act with Father Frost and the Snow Maiden! I did not see a single person leaving the event without a smile. Everyone had a great time, including myself.

I have attended event with Vladimir Sorokin, who traveled around the world on the bicycle. It was very interesting event that combined interesting travel stories of Vladimir with New Year celebration. Vladimir also was the Grandfather Frost who came to wish as the happy New Year. The event was very warm and interesting. This type of events bring close people, and provide opportunity for meeting the new people with the similar background and interests. I am looking forward to more of this kind of events. Thank you.
