Tyler, Texas (KETK) —
The East Texas Music Expo 2013, celebrating its 4th year, is a music industry highlight event scheduled to take place on July 27, 2013 in Tyler, Texas.
The East Texas Music Expo is taking initiatives to engage family and community by infusing them with what’s known as the universal language, music.
The ETME has a philosophy and attitude of community improvement embedded in its goal to celebrate, educate, entertain, and intertwine music professionals, enthusiasts and novice. But, entertainment and education aren’t separate, stand-alone themes of the ETME. Social consciousness and
responsibility are also embedded in the ETME’S vision, mission, and heartbeat.
This year, the ETME is partnering with Carter BloodCare to educate attendees on the importance of donating blood.
The ETME and Carter BloodCare  have set a goal to obtain four donations per hour in an attempt to ensure that the communities of North, Central and East Texas maintain strong blood bank supplies.
The East Texas Music Expo will be offering discounted pricing to post expo events to those that donate blood during the expo. Carter Blood will be onsite utilizing one of its mobile blood collection vehicles and donations will be accepted between noon and 7:00 p.m.
The ETME has been previously sponsored by Luscious Ice Entertainment, TAM Music Consulting, and KARE Non-Profit Organization. This year’s event, due
to growth, anticipated increases in participation, and the desire to affect more than its immediate area, the ETME opened its doors to corporate sponsorship to help ensure that the contribution and benefit of this event are experienced and extend beyond East Texas itself.
