Growing up in Israel, Mira Tzur was an accomplished ballerina who attended the Thelma-Yellin Performing Arts School on a scholarship from the America-Israel Culture Foundation. After graduation, she joined the BatSheva Dance Ensemble in Tel Aviv. But a childhood dream of pursuing a modeling career in New York still tugged at her, and in 1995, after completing a two-year stint as a counter-intelligence officer in the Israel Defense Forces, she made the move.

A world-renowned supermodel and entrepreneur, Tzur was among other professional entertainers and athletes in town last week (March 16-19) for the annual Celebrity Fight Night Founders Dinner and Auction, held at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in Phoenix. The event raises money for the Muhammed Ali Parkinson Center in Phoenix.
