Tuc$on Money Faire tomorrowby Carolyn Classen on Nov. 13, 2009, under Life, Politics
Free workshops, free tax preparation, free checking & savings options, free food– all at the Tucson Money Faire coming up on Saturday November 14 at the Northwest Neighborhood Center, 2160 N. 6th Avenue, south of Grant Road, from 10 a.m to 1 p.m. There are even prizes and free cash giveaways.
Sponsored by the Southwest Center for Economic Integrity, this faire (fair?) offers “affordable, friendly financial services and products” for all. You can also learn about foreclosure timelines and options, and credit reports and repair.
This Center for Economic Integrity (whose Executive Director is Councilmember Karin Uhlich) lead the fight against pay day loan companies in Arizona. Their mission is to “engage in research, education and advocacy to strengthen local economies by mobilizing and protecting marginalized people, holding corporations and industries accountable to communities and cultivating support for good business practices.”
Last year I attended this annual event and I witnessed someone win $100 in the free cash giveaway. How lucky!

“When the going gets tough, the tough get going”…hopefully to the Tucson Money Faire.
