Celebration at McKale Center: More in the Crowd

Posted By on Thu, Jan 13, 2011 at 10:18 PM

Sen. John McCain joined other Arizona and national leaders at the celebration.

A tone of celebration and hopeful rejoicing filled McKale Center for the Together We Thrive Tucson & America memorial.

The capacity crowd applauded as family members, doctors, and Arizona politicians entered the V.I.P. section in the arena. Among the capacity crowd were Bill Heilman, whose wife was the neighbor that brought young Christina Green to the Giffords meet-and-greet on Saturday; Angela Robinson, the step-daughter of Dorwin Stoddard; now world famous Sheriff Clarence W. Dupnik; and many other politicians including Senators John McCain, Jon Kyl, former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, former Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi and many Arizona politicians.

These are just some of the faces in the crowd.
