Today, Friday, October 6, from 4 to 8 p.m. Downtown Books in Manteo invites the community to support the efforts to find a bone marrow donor for Dare County’s current Teacher of the Year John Buford who was recently diagnosed with leukemia. Healthy individuals ages 18-40 are encouraged to get a cheek swab by certified volunteers that will be on-site.

If you do not qualify to donate, financial donations to support Mr. Buford’s medical costs will be accepted. A banner for well wishes from the Outer Banks community will also be available to sign.
