Memorial service and bone marrow drive in honor of Mandi Schwartz

It should be quite the emotional scene on Yale's campus later this week when a memorial service is held in the honor of former women's hockey player Mandi Schwartz on Wednesday. On Thursday the spirit of Schwartz, who lost her gallant fight against leukemia earlier this month, will be prevelant at the annual bone marrow donor drive named in her honor.

Sam Rubin from Yale's sports publicity office wrote up a release on the women's hockey team's trip to Saskatchewan to be a part of the memorial service at Athol Murray College of Notre Dame. It's definitely worth a read.

The memorial service will begin at 8 p.m. Wednesday at Calhoun College (189 Elm Street) on the Yale campus while the bone marrow donor drive will held from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. on Thursday at the Yale Commons (on the corner of Grove and College Streets).
