United Blood Services, Volkswagen partner for blood drive

From June 1–Aug. 31 blood donors will be automatically entered to win a 2015 Volkswagen Golf.

0610Ns Entertainment (United Blood)The Valley Volkswagen dealers have donated the car and partnered with United Blood Services in the sixth annual campaign to help inspire more people to give blood this summer.  Blood donors receive a bonus entry card that provides two additional chances to win: register the entry code online, and for even better odds, deposit the card in any Metro Phoenix area Volkswagen dealer showroom raffle box.

The Scottsdale Donor Center is at 15170 N. Hayden Road #6, in Scottsdale.

Ten finalists will be drawn to participate in the grand prize drawing, who will be unveiled throughout the summer on AZ-TV, according to a press release. For a blood donation appointment, call 1-877-UBS-HERO (827-4376) or visit www.BloodHero.com.

During the three-month summer campaign with Valley Volkswagen Dealers, United Blood Services hopes to attract nearly 50,000 blood donors to save lives in Arizona hospitals, according to the release.

“The seven Valley Volkswagen Dealers genuinely believe in giving back to the communities in which we live and do business,” stated Lunde’s Peoria Volkswagen owner Dennis Lunde, in the release. “What better way is there than to support United Blood Services in their efforts to make sure there is an adequate blood supply for those in need.”
