Back to School Bash Drive-Thru Experience

Aug 01 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

| Free

Registration for each individual is required.

Hemisfair’s signature summer event looks a little different this year, but the backpacks are just as stuffed! Register now for your FREE backpack, then head to Hemisfair on Saturday, Aug. 1 anytime between 11 a.m.-2 p.m. for a special drive-thru experience to pick it up! Specific pick-up instructions will be provided to you three days before the event via email.

Generous support makes it possible for us to provide 500 backpacks for local youth in kindergarten through fifth grade. Thanks to Argo Group for being our Back to School Bash premier sponsor, along with The Emergency Clinic and individual donors who made it possible to fill each backpack with essential school supplies. Backpacks are complete with colored pencils, glue, ruler, folder, wide-ruled loose leaf paper, scissors, erasers, colors, tissues and pencils.

Registration for this event has reached capacity.

This year, we’re able to reach even more children with the help of those donors who support Hemisfair’s inclusion efforts. Thank you to Community First Health Plans, Frederic J. & Dorothea Oppenheimer Foundation, Howard Energy Partners, LLC, The Greehey Family Foundation, The Green Door, The Louis Herbert Stumberg Jr Fund, and the Woods Foundation, whose gifts are helping to fill 50 Inclusion Matters packs with a weighted lap pad, noise-cancelling headphones, bubble machine, bubbles, color fizz tablets, water beads, kinetic sand and glow sticks.

Registration for Inclusion Matters packs has reached capacity.
