The Las Vegas Chapter of the Exhibit Designers and Producers Association is once again sponsoring the annual Tim Provo Blood Drive, which is being held September 21-28, 2011. This the the 3rd year that the Las Vegas Chapter will sponsor the event.
For those who are not aware, Tim was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia back in July of 2009 and the Las Vegas Chapter of EDPA wanted to do something that would allow the industry to show Tim our support.
While this started as a local Las Vegas initiative, the response from friends, family and colleagues across the country has been overwhelming.
“We are excited to have some new companies commit to hosting drives,” said Alicia Rosen, president of the EDPA Las Vegas Chapter. “We are sure this year will be bigger than ever.”
There will be dedicated drives in the following cities:
