Second Annual M*A*S*H Bash to Benefit UA Trauma

 
The Friends of University of Arizona Trauma Center will host the second annual M*A*S*H Bash, a fundraising event for the Division of Trauma, Critical Care, Burn and Emergency Surgery at the University of Arizona Department of Surgery and the Level 1 Trauma Center at The University of Arizona Medical Center – University Campus On Friday, Oct. 19, at the Pima Air and Space Museum, 6000 E. Valencia Road. Proceeds will benefit the new burn program at in the UA Trauma Division at UAMC. This will be the first and only inpatient burn program in Southern Arizona.
 
Starting at 6:15 p.m., the museum will be transformed into a camouflaged mobile army surgical hospital mimicking the M*A*S*H hit television series. Highlights include live entertainment by a USO-style group, along with a Cab Calloway impersonator and a “Rosie’s Bar.” Guests are encouraged to dress in M*A*S*H-era or Asian-style clothing.
 
Also join us for the Fourth Annual “Heroes Day,” which also supports the Trauma Center. On Thursday, Oct. 18, four first responders will be recognized as special heroes for their extraordinary responses to traumatic crises. Please visit www.520hero.com for more information and ways to support the cause.
 
Since 2003, The University of Arizona Medical Center – University Campus has been the only Level 1 Trauma Center serving Southern Arizona. The cost to provide this critical community service is estimated at more than $47 million a year. Money raised at the event will help to support research and training at the UA Trauma and Burn Program.
