The EDPA Las Vegas chapter’s ninth annual Tim Provo Blood Drive is tomorrow (Wednesday, Oct. 10) from 3-7 p.m. at Las Vegas Expo.
In 2009, when Elements owner Tim Provo was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia, EDPA held its first blood drive and collected 80 units of blood. Since then, nearly 200 units have been collected during EDPA’s drives. Factoring one donation can save three lives; that’s more than 500 lives that have been saved by the Tim Provo Blood Drive. While he passed away in 2010, the EDPA Las Vegas chapter has continued the event in his honor.
What started out as a way to show support for friend and industry colleague Tim Provo, continues to be an annual tradition. This year, Las Vegas Expo is hosting and event sponsors include AFR Event & Tradeshow Furnishings, Las Vegas Expo, Stevens E3 and MC2. Circulate love and give blood with your industry friends and family!
Wednesday, October 10, from 3-7 p.m. at Las Vegas Expo, 4075 East Post Road, Las Vegas, NV 89120
