2014 Blue Tag Gala
Saturday, October 25, 2014
Thank you for your support!
The 2014 Blue Tag Gala raised more than $200,000 for the Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center. Your generous support will help us in our quest to find a cure for sickle cell disease and truly make a difference in the lives of children and adults with this condition.
To the over 350 people who enjoyed an entertaining evening with Renee Chenault-Fattah, Tye Tribbett and us, we'd like to thank you for making this year's gala a success!
It's also not too late to continue supporting sickle cell research at CHOP.

What is the significance of "blue tag"?
Since patients with sickle cell disease often need many blood transfusions, it is best for them to receive blood that very closely matches their own. Donors with the same ethnic background usually make the best match.
Blood donors can guarantee their donation goes to help a patient with sickle cell disease by asking for the "Blue Tag." The "Blue Tag" notifies the American Red Cross testing lab that a blood donation is designated for the sickle cell program and the blood will be specifically matched for a patient with sickle cell disease.
