Michael A. Pollack does not just give financial help, but he is also an accomplished auctioneer and Master of Ceremonies, who has given his time and talent throughout the years to numerous charities in order to help make a positive difference in the lives of others. Combining his life-long love of music with his ability to play drums, Michael displayed yet another facet of himself starting in 2003 when he founded and performed in the band “Corporate Affair”.  The band has played various charity events around the valley of the sun at some of the following venues:  Arizona Biltmore, Phoenician Resort, The Buttes Resort, Sheraton Wild Horse Pass, Arizona Grand, Desert Ridge Marriott, Hyatt Regency Resort and Spa, Mesa Hilton, Scottsdale Waterfront, and The Celebrity Theater at no cost to the various charities.  Never slowing down Michael designed and built an award winning parade float which has been featured in several parades including APS Light Parade, Fiesta Bowl, Chandler Parade, Gilbert Parade, Scottsdale Parade and the Tempe Light Parade showcasing his talent and love for entertaining the hundreds of thousands of people along the parade routes.

Giving back to the community has always been an important part of Michael’s personality and life; he implanted that strong desire to give within each of his children.  With the 2011 tragic loss of his eldest son, Michael led with his heart to establish the Daniel Heath Pollack Memorial foundation in his son’s name, to continue giving to charities that Daniel supported, in his memory.  Michael has received numerous commendations, resolutions and proclamations from senators, congressional representatives, governors, mayors, city councils, county supervisors and commercial industry leaders for his achievements in renovation and community revitalization.
