  • Culver’s of St. Charles to host Sept. 20 ‘Day of Giving’ and marrow registry for girl battling rare leukemia Sep 10, 2014 4:32 PM
    Culver's of St. Charles will host a "Day of Giving" and marrow registry drive to honor six-year-old Ava Lee. The event will honor a local 6-year-old with leukemia. Culver’s will donate 10 percent of its receipts to Be the Match, a national bone marrow registry. According to Be the Match, ethnicity plays a big role in bone-marrow matches. Because Ava is of Taiwanese and Korean descent, her match most likely will be with someone who shares her similar ethnicity. Although only seven percent of the current, national registry of potential marrow donors are Asian, Lee's parents are hopeful that this Culver’s drive will reveal the "needle in the haystack" they desperately seek.
