Red Mango Donor Drive

The Red Mango Donor Drive has been confirmed!! We are so excited about this donor drive. Yul Kwon will be in attendance for all you Survivor fans out there. Thanks to the generosity of Red Mango VF new registrants will receive a free, small, single topping, frozen yogurt.

The drive will take place on:

Saturday, May 16, 2009
12 p.m. until 4 p.m. at:
Valley Fair Shopping Center

2855 Stevens Creek Blvd. (Space 1293 on the first floor)
Santa Clara, CA 95050
(408) 246-2720

Because of federal funding all Ethnic Minorities and people of mixed ethnicities are tested for free. The standard Non-minority testing fee is $52 but thanks to a federal grant this fee has been reduced to a $25 (tax deductible) tissue typing fee for Caucasian donors. To learn why only Caucasians are charged please click here.

You can visit Red Mango's website for more information about their yogurt.

Yul became involved with AADP when his best friend in college, Evan Chen, was diagnosed with Luekemia. The donor program became important to him because Yul saw firsthand what happens when it takes too long to find a matching donor. Sadly Evan found a match but not in time. By the time his match was found, Evan was too sick to survive the transplant procedure.

If you're in Palo Alto this summer be sure to stop in Yul Kwon's Red Mango shop at:

429 University Ave
Palo Alto, CA 94301
(650) 324-1811

(Please note that the donor drive will only be held at the Valley Fair Mall location.)
