BARCS is so appreciative of the many individuals and groups offering to run events to benefit BARCS. We have specific guidelines and an agreement form for any Third Party Event that must be completed and reviewed in advance of any Third Party Event. If you are interested in running an event that benefits BARCS, please complete the form to request more information.
