LEXINGTON, Ky. – The long wait is over, the official drawing was held yesterday and the 2010 Toyota Camry got a new owner today. From May 22 through Sept. 7, 2009, 29,687 blood donors presented to donate blood. This tremendous number of blood donors helped to keep the blood supply stable throughout the summer.

Of those nearly 30,000 donors, one lucky winner, Lowell Collett, 40, of Pineville (Bell County), Ky. won! Collett, a State Highway Department (Kentucky Transportation Cabinet) employee in Clay County, traveled to Lexington today to receive the keys to his new car.

Collett said, “I started giving blood about two years ago in Manchester [Clay County] and I give every time I can.”
