Come to learn about:
Thursday night was a blast and amazingly well-attended! Thank you all for coming. So sorry for those of you who arrived at the end and didn't get a chance to savor the salad and bread. We will make sure to have more of both next year! Also, a very special thank you to all our volunteers, without whom you would have been eating paper plates. Although there is no wine allowed in the building, maybe tonight you can raise a glass to Carrie Jemley, Jennifer LaScala, Amy Janas, Elizabeth Kruse, Alison Papays, and last, but certainly not least, Sandra Aposporos! They were absolutely amazing!
We would also like to thank the 4th graders for their lovely desserts, The Doolittle's for organizing and manning the bone marrow drive (and helping us with the oven), Marne for cheerfully allowing us use of her kitchen, Mr. Trong for cleaning up after us with a smile, and Mr. Elliott for being Mr. Elliott; always there, making it all come together.
Thanks again, it was great to see the community come out in force!

Be The Match Bone Marrow Registry Drive
Thursday, May 17, 2012 from 6-8pm during the QAE Spaghetti Dinner
In conjunction with the Puget Sound Blood Center and Queen Anne Elementary PTSA, we are holding a Bone Marrow Donor Registry Drive on Thursday, May 17 from 6:00-8:00pm during the QAE Spaghetti Dinner (details about the dinner coming soon!). We will have a table available where interested adults, between the ages of 18 and 60, can sit with a volunteer to educate themselves about the donation process, complete a questionnaire to ensure eligibility and perform a simple cheek swab for testing.
Registration is free! The Puget Sound Blood Center covers ALL costs for registration and testing.
70% of all patients cannot find a match within their own family. Please consider stopping by the table to talk with us!
