Car will be presented to winner next month
BEAUFORT, SC, July 11, 2012 – The Blood Alliance, enriching lives since 1942, together with Lucas Honda and HondasForLess.Net, announces that Martha “Sam” Cowan of Beaufort, SC, was randomly drawn (on July 2, 2012) to win a 2012 Honda Civic LX!
“We had more than 80,000 donors participate in the Honda car promotion that started on August 31st last year (2011),” said Valerie Collins, JD, MT(ASCP)SBB, Chief Operating Officer of The Blood Alliance. “Our need for blood is constant and we depend on our community to make that happen. Providing the car as incentive to come in and donate blood brought awareness of our need to new donors as well as donors that hadn’t donated in awhile.”
“We were pleased to be part of this promotion with The Blood Alliance and would like to thank everyone who participated and hopefully will continue to participate,” said Scott Boyles, Owner of Lucas Honda and HondasForLess.Net. “Donating blood is truly a selfless gift.”
Cowan, was informed of her prize, and was in disbelief, “Nobody ever gives me anything like this because I never win! What a surprise, I can’t believe it – is this real?” Cowan is a regular whole blood donor with The Blood Alliance, “I donate whenever my church (St. John’s Lutheran) hosts a blood drive. Whatever Sunday the bloodmobile shows up – I’m there to help my community.”
SAVE THE DATE! Cowan will officially be presented with her new Honda Civic LX next month, on Thursday, August 2, at 11:15 a.m., at The Blood Alliance at Beaufort (1001 Boundary Street, Suite A, Beaufort, SC 29902). Media will be sent a reminder.
FACT: If donors gave two times per year, blood shortages could be prevented.
