Blue Tie Bash2/5/2013 Digestive Health Associates of Texas (DHAT) are teaming up with the Dallas Mavericks to host the inaugural Blue Tie Bash, on April 8, 2013, at the Audi Club in American Airlines Center, benefiting CitySquare’s Community Health Services Program. WFAA Daybreak’s Ron Corning will host the event with Dallas Mavericks Head Coach, Rick Carlisle, serving as a special guest.
The Blue Tie Bash will raise funds for CitySquare’s Community Health Services (CHS) clinic and awareness about the importance of proper health screenings. “We are both thrilled and honored to partner with DHAT and North Texas GI on this inaugural event. Providing affordable, high quality healthcare to our neighbors is a major focus at CitySquare, and by working with companies like DHAT, we are able to continue this important work that our community so desperately needs,” said Shawn Wills, chief development officer of CitySquare.
“We are delighted to have an opportunity to develop an event like this in the DFW area, where there is currently no other fundraising event that focuses specifically on colon cancer. CitySquare’s commitment to helping those in need receive life-saving preventative screenings, reflects our commitment to promoting the awareness and education of colon cancer, while providing exceptional, cost-effective care for all of North Texas,” said Dr. Paul Zopolsky, president of DHAT.
In addition to CitySquare’s Community Health Services, a donation will also be made to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, an organization significant to Carlisle.
Official tickets can be purchased at http://bluetiebash.eventbrite.com. Corporate tables are available in addition to individual tickets. Corporate sponsors will enjoy a private reception with Coach Carlisle and Corning.
