Last Chance to Win July $5,000 Give & Go Travel Package

LEXINGTON, Ky. – July days are dwindling and so are the chances to be entered into the drawing to win Kentucky Blood Center’s $5,000 Give & Go travel package.

Everyone who registers at a Kentucky Blood Center donor center or blood drive in July and August will be automatically entered into the Give & Go summer campaign where one lucky donor per month wins a $5,000 vacation voucher. The three winners will work with AAA to plan a vacation of their dreams. The June winner has already been chosen and is busy making plans for an upcoming trip. The vacation voucher is good for 24 months and can be used in one lump sum or for several smaller trips.

In addition to the Give & Go summer promotion, Blue Bell Ice Cream is treating blood donors who visit the Beaumont, Andover or Somerset donor centers to a free pint of ice cream during the Pint for a Pint promotion July 26‐31. Donors will be able to select their favorite flavor of Blue Bell ice cream to enjoy at the donor center or to take home for later.
