GREENVILLE – Community Blood Center (CBC) will officially kick-off the “The iFocus on Saving Lives” summer blood drive campaign May 30 by unveiling the “race red” 2012 Ford Focus that one lucky donor will be driving this fall. Campaign sponsor Dave Knapp Ford Lincoln will get the race for the “race red” Focus started with a mobile blood drive and kick-off celebration at its Greenville dealership.
Everyone age 18 or older who registers to donate at any CBC branch or mobile blood drive from May 29 through Sept. 2 is automatically registered into the drawing to win the 2012 Ford Focus.
CBC is launching the summer campaign with the “iFocus, iChange Local Lives, the Power is in Your Hands” t-shirt. The red, white and blue flag design t-shirt is free to anyone who registers to donate May 29 through June 23 at any CBC branch or mobile blood drive.
The Ford Focus giveaway follows in the tire tracks of last summer’s wildly popular drawing for a new Jeep Patriot. “Our donors keep telling us they love our summer car giveaway campaign,” said CBC Donor Relations Director Andrew Keelor. “We value the commitment they make to donating during the busy summer months, and the Focus is a great way to say thank you. This car is a great combination of style and value, plus it’s the perfect color – race red!”
The Ford Focus will be on display as the Dave Knapp Ford Lincoln dealership during the mobile blood drive and kick-off party. The celebration will include free hot dogs, baked beans, chips, popcorn and cake, special gift bags for donors (including the iFocus t-shirt) and door prizes. The mobile blood drive is May 30, 3-6 p.m., at Dave Knapp Ford Lincoln, 500 Wagner Ave., Greenville.
The “iFocus on Saving Lives” Ford Focus summer giveaway campaign is sponsored by REACH Magazine and Dave Knapp Ford Lincoln of Greenville. Official rules are available at www.givingblood.com.
