Fundraiser Tonight For Area Teacher In Need Of Bone Marrow Transplant

02/12/2011 11:17 am ET | Updated May 25, 2011

For nearly seven years, Antioch High School teacher Sarah Menoni battled Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. She was in remission until Thanksgiving 2010, when she relapsed and was told that she needed a bone marrow transplant.

On Saturday, Chicago's Public House will host a bone marrow drive and fundraiser to help Menoni find a potential donor.

Public House is pairing up with Be the Match, a foundation that works with the National Bone Marrow Registry to find a match for those in need.

The event is open to everyone and is free to attend. A portion of the bar proceeds will go towards Menoni's health fund.

Stop by to have a free bone marrow testing, which only consists of a cheek swab.

There will be hors d'oeuvres and a silent auction with prizes such as signed sports apparel, weekend getaways and more.

If you can't attend, but still want to donate, visit Menoni's fundraising website.

When: Saturday, Feb. 12, 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Where: Public House Chicago, 400 N. State St.
Cost: FREE
