Hosted by Southern  Arizona Aids Foundation

“Join us to honor Concilmember Karin Uhlich as she retires from the Tucson City Council. Vice Mayor Regina Romero & Friends invite you to celebrate Karin’s service to our community. We’ll have lots of food, family & friends. All we need is YOU!

Karin has been a longtime supporter of the Eon drop-in lounge, a safe space for LGBTQ & allied youth. She knows youth need a place to access programming & services. That’s why she’s co-chair of the capital campaign to open the Thornhill Lopez Center on 4th, which will house not only Eon, but other youth-centered programming.

In lieu of gifts, Karin asks you to consider a gift to the Thornhill Lopez Center on 4th. ”
