WCLV'S 2010 THANKS-4-GIVING BLOOD DRIVE FOR LIFESHARE
The 2010 WCLV Thanks-4-Giving
Blood Drive on behalf of Lifeshare
Community Blood Services took
place on Thursday, November 11th,
and collected some 230 pints. And
since each pint can benefit up to four
patients, some 920 people in Lorain
County can be impacted.
The day-long event (8:00 am to
8:00 pm) was held at the Spitzer
Conference Center on the campus
of Lorain County Community College.
The WCLV blood drive formula of good food, good music, WCLV Goodybags and good prizes from the WCLV Prize Wheel prevailed. In addition, a fair with various health and wellness agencies ran concurrently.
The first 100 donors each received a dozen red roses from Botamer Florists and More.
Live music to serenade the donors and the air audience was presented by musicians from
the Bladwin-Wallace Conservatory of Music; Cuyahoga Community College,
The Aurora School of Music, and Larry Kass, he of the Mighty Wurlitzer Radio Hour.
WCLV air personalities Nancy Sinning, Jacqueline Gerber, John Simna and Robert Conrad
broadcast regular reports on the drive throughout the day.
WCLV's Thanks-4-Giving Blood Drive for LifeShare was presented in co-operation with Hanson Services, Driscol Music, Giant Eagle and The Chronicle Telegram.
