Harley Winner Announced!

Thank you to all donors who came to donate blood!


One lucky blood donor was rewarded with a 2011 Scarlet Red and Vivid Black XL1200N Harley-Davidson Nightster! On Saturday, February 2, 2013, 100 finalists were invited to Napoleon Harley Davidson for the drawing for the 2011 Nightster. There was a great turn out of finalist and supporters that day, and one lucky donor was rewarded with the bike!

Matt Ayers, of Toledo was that lucky winner! Matt is a member of the 983rd Engineer Battalion in Monclova, Ohio. He donates at his unit blood drives. Matt says that he doesn’t get many opportunities to donate blood, but is very happy that his unit holds blood drives with the Red Cross to make it a convenient opportunity for him, as he knows how important it is for people to donate.

The American Red Cross would like to Congratulate Matt and also thank K100, WNWO and Napoleon Harley-Davidson who teamed up to assist the Western Lake Erie Region (WLER) to promote this campaign. Also I big thank you to The Shack in Swanton who provided a great catered BBQ lunch for the event.

About the American Red Cross

The Western Lake Erie Region serves 11 counties, and needs to collect about 300 units of blood a day to meet patient need in 23 hospitals. In addition to supplying nearly half of the nation’s blood, the American Red Cross teaches lifesaving skills, provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization—not a government agency—and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
