Wildcat Fans Can Bleed Blue in March

LEXINGTON, Ky. – In March, Kentucky Blood Center invites all donors to be part of the Madness and receive a Bleed Blue in the Bayou T-Shirt after donating blood. Like all Wildcat fans, KBC hopes the Cats will go all the way to the Final Four in New Orleans.

“We know many of our donors will be excited about the Cats in March and we will be too, but we can’t forget our mission of providing lifesaving blood products to Kentucky patients who need transfusions,” said Martha Osborne, executive director of marketing and recruitment. “We hope our special Bleed Blue T-shirts will encourage donors to come see us –then they can wear their shirts to support the Cats.”

To find a donation location or to schedule a donation, visit or call 800.775.2522.
