WE ARE BACK, BETTER AND STRONGER!!!
The Lubbock Monterey Chapter of AMBUCS is excited to announce their SummerFest 2021 Fundraising Event will be on Saturday, August 14, 2021, and we are looking forward to seeing you there.
SummerFest 2021 Fundraising Event includes BBQ from Teddy Jack's (brisket, sausage and all the fixings), beer and wine tasting, silent and live auctions, listening to SPUR 327 Band, and dancing under the beautiful West Texas sky. The SummerFest Event is the major fundraiser for Lubbock Monterey Chapter of AMBUCS. Previous attendees believe this event should not be missed.
We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization serving the Lubbock community and the South Plains area. Our mission is to create mobility and independence for people with disabilities. Our goals focus on raising money for our two projects: AMBUCS AMTRYKE PROGRAM and AMBUCS SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM FOR THERAPIST. Once we have our funds for these projects, there is nothing better than GIVING it all away.
AMBUCS AMTRYKE PROGRAM consists of AMTRYKE therapeutic trykes, specifically adapted to the individual's needs, allowing those with physical and/or mental disabilities to improve their coordination, muscle strengthening and socialization skills. Recipients enjoy being able to ride their AMTRYKE with their family and friends. Those who qualify for an AMTRYKE will receive it at no cost to them.
Below are some of our most recent AMTRYKE recipients.
AMBUCS SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM provides scholarships to students in the field of Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Pathology and Audiology at Texas Tech Health Sciences Center—Health Professionals. These students are our future therapists and we are proud to support them and, they are most appreciative of the scholarships they receive from us. Please view their video “Thank You AMBUCS”.
So, we ask you to COME, ENJOY, AND SUPPORT OUR CAUSE by bringing your charity money for bidding on the silent and live auctions. Tickets to the event are $60.00 each and go on sale July 12, 2021.
