It’s 2012, and preparations for the Annual Tucson Blue Ribbon Event are well underway. The event will be held, as usual, on the first Saturday in May (the 5th) at Thoroughbred Nissan from 4-7pm. There will be food, fun, entertainment, face painting, a speaking event, and a special balloon release to honor the children in foster care. This year, there will also be a very SPECIAL GALLERY of pictures of children right here in Tucson who are waiting for their forever family.
Although the purpose of this event is to honor the children in foster care and the families who love them, it is also an opportunity to bring to light the fact that Arizona needs more foster and adoptive homes. There is a great need for families of all kinds to love and care for the children in foster care, and a vast need for families who are willing to care for them or to call them their own.
The F.A.C.T. (Foster and Adoptive Council of Tucson) website has been updated with a fresh new look, more content, a user-friendly interface, and includes a special gallery of children in Tucson looking for their forever families. You can learn more about foster care, adoption, the licensing process and view these photos by visiting :
The Tucson Blue Ribbon Event website was also updated to reflect a similar style to the new F.A.C.T. site. We hope you enjoy the changes.
