On Sat., Oct. 22, at the Pima Air and Space Museum, 6000 E. Valencia Road, the Friends of University of Arizona Trauma Center will host the first annual M*A*S*H Bash, a fundraising event for the Division of Trauma, Critical Care and Emergency Surgery at the University of Arizona Department of Surgery and the Level 1 Trauma Center at The University of Arizona Medical Center – University Campus.
 
Starting at 6 p.m., the museum will be transformed into a camouflaged mobile army surgical hospital mimicking the M*A*S*H hit television series. Highlights include special celebrity guests from the M*A*S*H television series, including Mike Farrell (B.J. Hunnicutt) and William Christopher (Father Mulcahy), live entertainment by a USO-style group, along with a Cab Calloway impersonator and a “Rosie’s Bar,” serving specialty drinks in mini-canteens while the band plays music from WW II to the present. Guests are encouraged to dress in M*A*S*H-era or Asian-style clothing.
 
Money raised at the event will help to fund an endowed chair in trauma for medical research to advance the field of trauma and emergency surgery.
