Ultimate Go For 3 Frequent Blood Donor Contest To Win Big Prizes!
Southwest FL: November 1, 2014 through April 30, 2015: Community Blood Center & Germain BMW of Naples are joining together to launch a new seasonal donor program, “The Ultimate Go For 3 Frequent Donor Contest!” The “Ultimate Go For 3 Frequent Donor Contest” runs November 1, 2014 – April 30, 2015, and is meant to both thank and encourage blood and platelet donors to keep on giving the ultimate gift of life this time of year. Donors have the opportunity to qualify to win prizes based upon the number of successful donations they make between now and April 30, 2015. People who successfully give blood or platelets once during the contest timeframe will have the chance to win either a $50 gas card or a car detail courtesy of Germain BMW of Naples, while donors who give twice have the chance to win an iPad! People who give three times by April 30 have the opportunity to win a weekend Get-Away Package inclusive of a 1-night hotel stay at the Naples Grande Beach Resort with a spa service, $100 dining voucher for Aura Restaurant AND the chance to drive a 2015 BMW 428i CV convertible for 48 hours! Donors must be at least 25 years old with valid driver’s license and insurance to specifically qualify for the weekend get-away, spa, dinner and car package. Donors must be at least 16 years old to qualify for the first two prize packages.
Whole blood can be donated every 56 days and platelets every 2 weeks. Therefore, it is possible that donors can give 3 times before April 30. Donations can be made at any Community Blood Center bloodmobile blood drive location (see website for drive sites) or at the Community Blood Center’s Naples Branch: 311 Ninth Street N. Suite 108, Naples, FL 34102. 239-624-4120. Wallet sized frequent donor tracking cards will be distributed to donors during their first donation. These donor tracking cards will also serve as official prize ticket entries after donors complete the appropriate number of donations. Winners will be drawn on 5/14/15. Visit the Community Blood Center’s website: www.givebloodcbc.org or its Facebook page: facebook.com/givebloodcbc to obtain official rules, details and restrictions. Community Blood Center invites everyone to give the Ultimate gift this season and “Go For 3!” Your gift of life will help to curb local blood shortages. Minimum age to give blood is 16 with parent consent. There is no upper age maximum. Donors must weigh at least 110 pounds, should eat prior to giving blood and must be well hydrated.
