Give blood for The King

-A A +A

Medic Regional Blood Center is offering one blood donor in January a trip for two to Graceland, home of Elvis Presley.    

Donors who give blood during the month are automatically entered to win the prize package that includes two tickets to Graceland, overnight hotel stay and a gas card.    

Medic will be at Oliver Spring Food City from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Jan. 30 for a blood drive.

All donors will receive a limited-edition Elvis T-shirt.

“This area has been hit hard with sickness, which has negatively affected our collections,” explained Christi Fightmaster of Medic public relations.

Donors must be 17 years old and weigh 110 pounds or more. With parental consent, 16-year-olds weighing 120 pounds or more may donate blood. Consent forms can be found at any blood drive or online at www.medicblood.org.

All donors must present identification.
