Be the Match and Save a Life with just a Q-tip Swab

BE THE MATCH at Crestview Baptist Church!
MIDLAND -- BE THE MATCH at Crestview Baptist Church! Nope, not for a date, but to SAVE A LIFE!

Crestview will be hosting Be the Match, Save a Life from 5:30-7PM with bbq by Johnny’s BBQ for only $10.

At 7PM BE THE MATCH will explain what the bone marrow transplant foundation is and what it is all about. Crestview’s own Susan Reeves will be the main guest, (Susan is one of the successful stories about bone marrow transplants). Susan’s donor Nick will be there too and Susan will be meeting him for the first time. Two of Susan’s doctors who were instrumental in Susan’s bone marrow transplant, treatment and recovery, people from the Be the Match, Save a Life foundation will also be there as well.

Myths and lies will be dispelled and truths on this procedure that can save a life will be discussed.

After a 20-30 minute panel discussion, questions, and answers, you’ll be dismissed into the Commons area for dessert, coffee, a hot chocolate bar, and “swabbing” for FREE! It’s just a little Q-tip swab in your mouth! If you choose not to be swabbed, you can still help out this life-saving program by donating. Tax receipts for your donation will be available.

You can go online at www.crestviewmidland.org to register and get signed up for your bbq meal for $10, or you can go by the Crestview office to pick up your tickets at 301 N. Loop 250 West (corner of Loop 250 and Thomason) between the hours of 9-5 this Thursday or Friday, or Sunday the 31st at a special marked table between services, Monday or Tuesday from 9-5 or last chance will be all day Wednesday at the church from 9 a.m.-7:30 p.m.

If you can’t attend but would like to donate, you can go to www.bethematch.org, click on the GIVE button, and follow instructions.

If you have to hire a baby-sitter for the evening, the church will issue you a voucher to be re-imbursed for up to $20. When you register on-line, you will receive a confirmation email and it will have a link with instructions on what to do to get the voucher. If you buy your ticket in the office, let the ladies know you need a baby-sitting voucher and they will give you instructions on how to get that. Vouchers will only be available to the first 20 persons to complete a request. Only one voucher per family can be received.
