Dave Thurston needs a bone marrow transplant

By The Staff

A Frito pie dinner and silent auction to benefit a Los Alamos High School teacher suffering from acute myelogenous leukemia is scheduled from 4:30-7 p.m., Friday Dec. 11 at Los Alamos High School Cafeteria. Dinner tickets are $5.

LAHS science teacher Dave Thurston requires a bone marrow transplant. His three closest siblings are not a match, so he must register his name on a national database for bone marrow recipients. The cost is $10,000 and is not covered by his insurance.

Local clubs, classes or groups of friends are encouraged to a donate gift baskets for the silent auction.

Choose a theme, fill the basket with items pertaining to that theme, catalog the contents, estimate the value and drop off the basket at the LAHS front office by Dec. 7.

Gift basket ideas include:

• Laundry — filled with bleach, detergent, fabric softener and dryer sheets;

• Baking — filled with a large plastic bowl, mini-muffin pan, baking powder, baking soda, chocolate chips and a recipe book;

• Games — filled with board games, dice, playing cards, puzzles, small prizes, timer, pencils and scorecards;

• Pizza — filled with a pizza wheel, pizza pan, cookbook, Boboli pizza crust, pizza sauce, gift card for cheese and toppings, red-checkered napkins, sturdy paper plates and soda;
