Red Cross Donorama Set For Monday, Tuesday

The largest annual blood donation drive in Kentucky will be held today and tomorrow (Dec. 29-30) in Louisville.The 2008 Louisville Donorama will take place from noon until 7:00pm both days at the Executive West Hotel.Red Cross spokeperson Loni White says the Donorama helps the region's hospitals get through the holiday season."That's very, very important because the need for blood is constant and during this time of the year people are involved in family activities and holiday celebrations and they put off giving blood,"  she said.White says the Red Cross hopes to collect at least 750 pints of blood per day.All blood types are needed.
