Be the Match and save a life

By Melanie Pueblo February 27, 2017

Sweet Frog Bossier City is holding a fundraiser for Be the Match.

This is our 3rd annual fundraiser for LifeShare Blood Centers' Marrow Donor Program, an affiliate of the national organization Be The Match. 

This program works with patients who are battling blood illnesses such as leukemia, lymphoma and sickle cell disease. If their doctor determines they need a stem cell or marrow transplant to save their life, Be The Match helps them find their life-saving donor, by holding registry drives.

LifeShare's program operates in North and Central Louisiana to raise awareness and to register donors. To help in their mission of saving lives, Sweet Frog in Bossier City, La is raising funds during the month of March for the program. You can support their mission by donating financially in-store or by bidding on items in our online auction. Every dollar raised will stay local.

If you like one or more of the items, simply place your bid below that item in the comments section in whole dollar amounts. Opening bid will be 25% of the items value. The event will only post for 2 weeks, but we actually run it during the entire month of March. Therefore, you can begin placing your bids as soon as the item has posted. We will post several items throughout the month, so make sure you keep checking back to see what all we have to offer.

The winning bidder will be announced on March 31st at 8pm. However, if there are any on-going bidding wars, the item will be available until a 15 minute gap between bids. Once 15 minutes have passed since the final bid, the item will be considered "sold".

The highest bidders will be announced in the comment section for each item. I can meet you anywhere in the Shreveport/Bossier area for pick-up or items can be shipped at an additional fee. You can pay with cash or write a check directly to Be The Match. You will have 1 week to have your items picked up or they will be forfeited and passed to the 2nd highest bidder.
