Eventbrite - AVS Transplant Party: Dirty South Edition

THE PARTY

DJ Fanci will be spinning 6 hours of the best of Cash Money, No Limit, 8Ball & MJG, Jeezy, Gucci, Three6 and more as we take over the top floor of The Pitch Tavern in Petworth.  Please come prepared to sweat, swag and surf as we officially and properly kick off day party season in DC!

In keeping with the AVS mission to serve our community, we have partnered with Be The Match. Over the past 25 years Be The Match, operated by the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP), has managed the largest and most diverse marrow registry in the world. They work every day to save lives through transplant.



THE CAUSE

Race, or better yet ethnicity matters when it comes to finding a matching donor. Searching patients are most likely to find the best match within their own race or ethnicity. By increasing the diversity of the Be The Match Registry we can have a positive impact on these figures so that more patients are able to find matching donors.

THE DETAILS

Be The Match will be present during the event to sign people up for the registry. A quick cheek swab and basic information is all you will need to provide to become a potential donor.
