Lucky Star Casino plans blood drive for Dec. 26
CONCHO -- Lucky Star Casino invites all Concho-area residents to get in the giving spirit by donating life-saving blood. Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) will conduct a blood drive 1 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 26, at 7777 N U.S. 81.
Each donor will receive an OBI ball cap, health screenings and Donor Rewards points, redeemable for items in OBI’s online store. All donors will receive $10 free play.
Any donor who wishes to support the Global Blood Fund can forgo the ball cap. In turn, Oklahoma Blood Institute will make a monetary contribution of similar value to the Global Blood Fund. It’s a chance to ‘doubly give’ by saving a life locally, and making safe blood available in the world’s poorest countries.
“We’re blessed to be surrounded by giving people who respond when they know of a need,” said Dr. John Armitage, president and CEO of Oklahoma Blood Institute. “The gift of blood is a life-saving one. It’s difficult to think of anything more important that we personally can do.”
