Seminole Service Day is this Saturday: can you spare an hour?
Join the Greater New Orleans Seminole Club THIS Saturday, March 24 as we work to combat childhood diseases with the Kidz 1st Fund and Be the Match. We’ll be registering folks for the National Bone Marrow Registry, which helps pair registrants with people facing life-threatening diseases. For Ethan Fisher, the son of Florida State football coach Jimbo Fisher, it’s Fanconi’s Anemia. For others, it’s leukemia or sickle cell anemia. Registering is painless and free – and can save lives!
We’re partnering earlier that day with St. Baldrick’s at Finn McCool’s (3701 Banks Street, Mid-City) at 11:30 a.m. We’ll celebrate as a club that evening at 7:00 p.m. at Tracey’s Uptown Bar (2604 Magazine Street, Uptown), where we’ll also be registering volunteers for the match and collecting funds for the Kidz 1st Fund’s research into curing childhood blood disorders (and yes, there will be drink specials just for us!). We also need volunteers to help collect samples (you will be trained) and to help get folks out to Finn’s and Tracey’s to register. Volunteers or registry participants will get $1 off domestics, wells and drafts at Tracey’s, too.
Can you spare an hour? Bring a friend to sign up for the registry? Forward this to your friends? Encourage them to come via Twitter or Facebook? Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
