This drive is part of Desi Dhamaka, the Pacific Northwest's largest South Asian cultural show, which is held at the Meany Theater. From The Daily:
In addition to the show, there is a planned bone marrow registration drive. According to the Puget Sound Blood Center, only 7 percent of the 6 million registered bone marrow donors are Asian or Pacific Islander. Patients from the same ethnic background as the donor are more likely to find a matching bone marrow type, making registration of ethnic minorities especially important.
