BLOOD BASH IS BACK!
Red Cross at UCSD is hosting its fourth annual week-long blood drive event. This is the LARGEST blood donation event in SoCal! Our goal is to collect 400 units, which has the potential to SAVE 1200 LIVES.
ALL DONORS RECEIVE: FREE food and drinks. Also, by donating we will approve 5 VOLUNTEER HOURS.
PRIZES: All donors will be entered into a raffle to receive tickets to Knott's Berry Farm! We have hundreds of tickets to give away so all donors have a great chance to win!
INTER-GREEK LIFE/CLUB SPORTS COMPETITION: The competition is back! The IFC, PHC, and MGC greek organizations will be competing to collect the most blood donors (miniumum 10 donors). The organization that can achieve the ...most donors will win a prize of THEIR CHOICE (up to a $500 value). Amazing right?! In addition, org. members may bring someone from outside the org. to donate on their behalf and win points for them.
