Go For 3 Frequent Blood Donor Contest To Win Big Prizes!
Southwest FL: May 1, 2015 - October 31, 2015: NCH Community Blood Center & Germain Honda of Naples are joining together to launch the 3rd biannual "Go For 3 Frequent Donor Contest!” The Go For 3 Frequent Donor Contest runs May 1, 2015 – October 31, 2015, and is meant to both thank and encourage blood and platelet donors to regularly give the ultimate gift of life. Donors have the opportunity to qualify to win prizes based upon the number of successful donations they make between now and October 31, 2015. People who successfully give blood or platelets once during the contest timeframe will have the chance to win $50 gas card, while donors who give twice will have the chance to win a 2-night stay at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples plus the aforementioned gas card! People who give three times by October 31 have the opportunity to win a 60" 1080 3D HD TV and the chance to bring their TV home in a new Honda HR-V during an extended 24 hour test drive! Donors who successfully give three times by October 31 will also qualify to win the first two prizes.
Whole blood can be donated every 56 days and platelets every 2 weeks. Therefore, it is possible that donors can give 3 times before Oct. 31. Donations can be made at any Community Blood Center bloodmobile blood drive location (see website calendar 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 between November 1 & November 16, 2015 and donors will be notified. Visit the Community Blood Center’s website: www.givebloodcbc.org or its Facebook page to obtain official rules, details and restrictions. Community Blood Center invites everyone to “Go For 3!” Your gifts 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. Photo ID is required at donation time.
