Give Blood in April to Win Reds Tickets
Hoxworth Blood Center is offering Cincinnati Reds tickets as an incentive to give blood during the month of April.
The springtime can bring warmer weather, but also increased blood usage at local hospitals due to more accidents and traumas.
All donors who give blood at any Hoxworth blood drive or donor center between April 1-30, 2007 will automatically be entered in a raffle to win four tickets to an upcoming Cincinnati Reds home game.
One winner will be selected each week in April and will win four tickets to an upcoming Cincinnati Reds home game. The group of four tickets are in section 128, located ten rows behind the Reds dugout and have a retail value of $125.
