Tom Vandergriff Civil Courts Building
On May 4, 2017 the Tarrant County Bar Association, Tarrant County Bar Foundation and the Tarrant County Family Law Bar Association will be hosting their annual Blood Drive. This year’s event will be held again in the Jury Assembly Room of the Tom Vandergriff Civil Courts Building located at 100 N. Calhoun Street starting at 8 AM and ending at 4 PM. The annual Blood Drive benefits our locally operated Carter Blood Center.
Thanks to so many of you who helped to make the 2016 Annual Blood Drive our most successful drive ever with over 120 people participating. The Blood Drive Committee has been working diligently to make our 2017 Blood Drive event just as successful. Already the Committee has secured door prizes to be given to selected participants, and the list continues to grow!!!!:

With last year’s event, the Committee initiated the recognition and awarding of its “travelling trophies” presented to law firms and organizations that have the most individuals donating blood. The categories for awards include: small firms (1-10 people); medium firms (11-40), large firms (41+), organizations/associations (up to 99) and large organizations/associations (100+). Everyone (attorney, staff, friend, etc) who participates can associate with any entity in hopes of winning one of these beautiful travelling trophies. Last year’s trophy winners included the Tarrant County Domestic Relations Office, the Second Court of Appeals, the Kelly Hart & Hallman LLP and Dowell, Pham & Harrison, LLP law firms, and the Tarrant County Family Law Bar Association. Who knows if they will maintain their trophy in 2017.
Come early to enjoy a coffee social and light breakfast provided by Corner Bakery, or visit at lunchtime for delicious UNO pizza. Carter Blood has assured us that there will be plenty of stations for timely donations. Appointments/sign-ups can NOW be made here.
The Blood Drive Committee is excited and sincerely hopes that each of you can participate this year. Mark your calendars now (May 4th) for this fun event and for an opportunity to provide blood for those who are in need of this invaluable lifeline.
