TMC to serve as Presenting Sponsor for Centurions 2017 fundraising event

cent2The Centurions of Southern Arizona Charitable Foundation has announced that Tucson Medical Center will be the presenting sponsor for The Centurions’ major 2017 fundraiser, scheduled to take place May 6th at Kino Sports Complex.

The primary beneficiary of the 2017 event for the second consecutive year will be Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tucson, fulfilling The Centurions’ $207,500 funding pledge to that charity.

The Centurions, an independent 501(c)3 charitable organization with an active membership of prominent business and civic leaders, support a wide range of worthwhile charitable organizations and projects in Southern Arizona. Tucson Medical Center will become the primary beneficiary in 2018.

“We are beyond excited to have secured TMC as our presenting sponsor starting in 2017,” said Joe Dhuey, President of The Centurions. “TMC’s three-year commitment to The Centurions represents our highest level event sponsorship in the 50-year history of our organization. Such unprecedented backing means that our organization will now be able to give more than ever to the charities of our choice.

The Centurions’ mission is to support Southern Arizona charities that provide services to underserved community members in the areas of healthcare, education and mentorship with an emphasis on improving children’s lives.

For instance, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tucson is applying funds raised by The Centurions to the launch of its Mentor 2.0 program, an initiative that pairs adult mentors with Tucson area high school kids and provides them additional tools and support to help them graduate from high school, succeed in college and achieve their ambitions.

“TMC is very excited to join forces with The Centurions to support worthwhile local charities like Big Brother Big Sisters,” said TMC’s Michael Duran, vice president and chief development officer. “ Our presenting sponsorship represents our continued commitment to Southern Arizona and to our mission to improve the health and well-being of our community. We are especially pleased that The Centurions have selected TMC as their primary beneficiary in 2018 so that together we can further our shared vision for a healthier region.”
