Spring Cleaning Drive for Big Brothers Big Sisters of So AZ

From March 20th to April 20th we will be collecting Clothing, accessories, handbags, shoes & linens for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Arizona. This will help them and they will pay us a per pound of the items we donate. Win- WIn! Items can be donated at my office at 6444 E Tanque Verde Rd, Tucson, AZ 85715 Monday-Friday 8am-5pm. Outside those hours you can bring them to any event on our calendar or contact us to arrange something. So turn on the Netflix watch some Marie Kondo and ask yourself, “Does it spark joy?” If not donate it to us! For other items, hold on, for now, we are hoping to do a Yard Sale in April, but I don’t have space to warehouse stuff yet.

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

No children under 6 are allowed in the theater, children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Any unaccompanied minors will be given espresso, tons of sugar and a kitten.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

jennifer@thetacoteam.org, or msg on our website.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

You don’t have to, we will have a printout of the tickets purchased.

What’s the refund policy?

Tickets can be refunded up to 7 days prior to the event.

Do you offer handicapped seating?

Each auditorium for Roadhouse Cinemas has allocated seating that is wheelchair accessible in the back of the theatre. The handicap area is designed for wheelchairs so they can be easily rolled up to a table. The seats are in the back of the auditorium with good views. Each table has a call button to summon your server. In the event a handicap guest is not in a wheelchair, but requires the handicap seating area, there are very comfortable office chairs to sit in. Please Note: These are comfortable, rolling office chairs and not recliners.

Do you provide assisted listening devices for hard of hearing or the descriptive devices for the deaf and blind community?

Yes. Each auditorium has a Hearing Impaired System installed. Roadhouse Cinemas also has the descriptive device for our blind friends.

How much of the ticket price is donated?

We pay for the whole theater, seating for 54 (4 wheelchair accessible spaces). If we sell out then $9.16 from each ticket would be donated. If we don’t sell out we still have to pay the flat fee for the theater, so BRING YOUR FRIENDS!

The Road So Far…

It’s been a long journey so far, follow us as we show you where we’ve been and what we’ve accomplished so far.

Winter Solstice 2015- a group of us heathens were sitting around the bonfire talking about all the things we wish we could do to help our community. Many lofty ideas were brought up and maybe we’ll get there someday. The seed was planted then to start this group.
