- Saturday, July 14, 2018 - Ward 4 Council Office 18th Annual Back to School Bash
Location: William Clements Center, 8155 East Poinciana Drive
Time: 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.
This Saturday, July 14th from 8:00-11:00am the Ward 4 Council Office is hosting it's 18th Annual Back to School Bash. This has become a signature event for southeast Tucson. Each year more families count on this long-standing tradition to get a jump-start on making sure their children are ready to start the new school year.
When this event began in 2001, approximately 350 participants attended. Recently, we have had over 2,000 people show up and participate. The "Bash" will be held on Saturday, July 14th, at the William Clements Center, 8155 East Poinciana Drive from 8 am to 11am. All of the donations that are received go towards supplying the children and families with backpacks, school supplies, breakfast, and raffle prizes including laptop computers, tablets, and bicycles. This entire event is free to all that attend. The event is a success because of our amazing volunteers and sponsors. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us at (520) 791-3199. This year we have partnered with the American Red Cross.
The American Red Cross has now slipped in official critical collections status with only about 25% of our shelves filled. All blood types are needed. Every 2 seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood, and with one 1 pint of donated blood you could be saving 3 lives. Since we serve Southern Arizona, all donations collected here, stay here to fulfill our local hospital obligations first. Donors could very well be saving the life of a neighbor, friend, family member or loved one, and not even know it. All sleeves-up and all hearts-in. We can't save lives without our donors! They are the #MissingType! Join us on July 14th during our Back to School Bash and help save some lives.
To be eligible to donate you must be at least 17 years old, meet height and weight requirements (at least 110 pounds based on height) and be in generally good health. Everyone who donates at the event will receive an American Red Cross t-shirt and a raffle ticket to win gift certificates ranging from $15 to $250; however the first 10 people to sign up now and donate at the Back to School Bash will be guaranteed to receive a gift certificate. The blood mobile will be located at 8123 E. Poinciana Dr. on Saturday, July 14th from 8-Noon. If you would like to sign up now and be one of our guaranteed winners, or have any additional questions, please call 1-800-733-2767 or visit redcrossblood.org and use Sponsor Code: WARD4
