The opportunity to try out the world’s largest superslide, known as the “HavaSlide,” while supporting a good cause, is set to happen at the first HavaSlide Epic Event to take place in Lake Havasu City this Saturday, September 26.
The HavaSlide is a 1,000-foot dual-lane inflatable slide with a 42-foot drop, and it will extend from BJ’s Karaoke & Cabana Bar to the Flying X. People on inflatable rafts or tubes will be able to slide down and ride down the long slide.
Proceeds from ticket sales to this event will be utilized to help build a state-of-the-art Pediatric Ambulatory Infusion Center offering treatments such as chemotherapy, hydration, stem cell infusion, IVIG, blood transfusions and more.
The Norona Effect, a program started by Tracy Henry and her sisters, ensures that families and their children have access to medical facilities and care. The program will also donate 5 percent of all the revenue generated toward the educational department for Lake Havasu City children.
“We are super passionate about this because my sister’s daughter has leukemia and many families have a difficult time with treatments and a long commute at times to get to a medical facility to do so,” said event organizer Henry. “We wanted to make a change and do something about it, every dime that goes to this goes to the cause and these families.”
Tickets will be available at www.eventbee.com/v/havaslide. Bring your own inflatable raft or tube or you may purchase an adult tube online for $2 each plus a $2 fee.
General Admission is Single Adult Unlimited: $35 plus a $1 fee. A single Child (17 and under) with an unlimited pass is $30 plus a $1 fee.
The event will take place at McCulloch Boulevard (between BJ’s & The Flying X).
