Bone marrow drive a success

By Staff | Jul 2, 2009

What a success story! The bone marrow drive and breakfast on Sunday was a huge success. There were 54 people who agreed to be potential bone marrow donors. That is awesome! It is because of people with big hearts like you that have made it possible to find a marrow donor for Jeanne. Because of your generosity, another person’s life may be saved. Thank you all.

The breakfast was also a huge success! It could not have been done without all the people who attended, donated food and worked to make it happen. A large sum of money was raised for the “Be a Match” foundation. Also thank you to Thrivent for matching funds.

I cannot say enough about the wonderful community of friends and family that made this day a reality. There was terrific leadership to get it all organized and advertised. Workers came from Rugby, Rolette and Willow City to keep things moving and the food hot. Another crew worked to coordinate the potential donors. Great job, everyone! I am very proud to say we belong to a community where people care about each other.
