Salt Lake City, Dec. 9, 2009 -- The American Red Cross and FOX 13 have teamed up again this year to provide a fun and entertaining opportunity for holiday blood donors.
 
On Tuesday, December 15, 2009 from 6:00 AM until 6:00 PM, FOX 13 and KZHT FM 97.1 will broadcast live from the American Red Cross Blood Donor Center at 6616 South 900 East. Donors are invited to meet and mingle with Big Budah and other television and radio personalities at the donor center. Each presenting donor will receive a t-shirt and be eligible to enter drawings for prizes including The Canyons ski passes, gift certificates, and Red Cross gift packages. Special refreshments will be provided by Harmons and Subway. 
 
Julia Wulf, chief executive officer of the American Red Cross Blood Services Region, said, “This annual blood drive has proven to be one of our most successful drives of the year. Last year we collected nearly 500 units of blood. This event is crucial to our efforts to keep Utah hospitals supplied with blood products during the holiday season and beyond.”
 
The American Red Cross strives to collect an average of 2,350 units of blood in Utah each week to meet patients’ needs. The Red Cross provides blood products for 33 Utah hospitals.
