American Red Cross Sends Donors to the Races
Everyone who comes out to donate blood tomorrow, Friday, August 19 at the Lansing Donor Center (1729 E. Saginaw) has a chance to win one (1) of eight (8) pairs of tickets to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Michigan International Speedway Sunday, August 21. However, every presenting donor will be a winner. Those who do not win race tickets will receive a special Red Cross gift.
Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood. This summer, blood collections hit a critically-low level and the Red Cross is still working to replenish the blood supply to an adequate level.
In addition to the MIS promotion, every presenting donor will have a chance to win a $500 Best Buy gift card, a $125 Meijer gas card and $250 in groceries to Meijer.
The Donor Center is open Friday from 7a.m. to 12:45p.m.
“The 2011 racing season concludes with the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Pure Michigan 400. The Sprint Cup Series stars always end the MIS season with an exciting finale, featuring many lead changes and exciting finishes. In 2010, Kevin Harvick won his first Sprint Cup Series race at MIS and also gave owner Richard Childress his first MIS Cup victory since Dale Earnhardt Sr. won in the Irish Hills 20 years before in 1990. With great camping, affordable adult prices, kids 12 and under free in general admission seats, half off in any reserved seat for juniors 13-17, free parking and the ability to bring a bigger cooler with your favorite food and beverages, MIS is the perfect way to end your summer race season.”
Thank you for all you do to support the lifesaving mission of the American Red Cross!
