University of Arizona’s 2010 Spring Fling to Again Benefit Community Food Bank

The University of Arizona’s 2010 Spring Fling will again benefit the Community Food Bank.  The partnership with Spring Fling is part of the campus wide  UA4 Food drive that brings together faculty, staff, students and area merchants to raise money and food for the Community Food Bank.  Spring Fling takes place at Rillito Downs (North 1st and River Road) April 8 through April 11, 2010.

The UA Spring Fling is the largest student run carnival in the nation.  It raises money for student clubs, organizations, events, and service work, but also benefits the Tucson community.  This year, Spring Fling will aid the Community Food Bank’s Child Hunger and Nutrition Programs and The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) Food Box program.


Attendees at this year’s Spring Fling on Thursday, April 8 and Friday, April 9, 2010, can combine fun and philanthropy.  A donation of four cans of food will reduce their Spring Fling wrist band purchase by $5 (good for all rides that day).

“Over the years both Spring Fling and the Community Food Bank have benefited greatly from our partnership,” said Chase Sutton, Marketing Director for Spring Fling.  “Every year the Tucson and University communities continue to support the Community Food Bank through Spring Fling and strive to reach our goals of donations and attendance.”
