Governor's Cup Blood Drive Is Tuesday

From WFPL's Haley HartThe American Red Cross will hold the last of the area’s major summer blood drives Tuesday.The Governor’s Cup Blood Drive will be held from noon until 7pm at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on Phillips Lane, which encourages UK and U of L football fans to support their teams through blood donation.Loni White of the American Red Cross said that the Governer’s Cup Drive is strategically planned to build up the blood supply in a typically slow season. “Our two very difficult seasons are summer and winter.  And we assume that during the summer time it has to do with school starting again, it has to do with people being on vacations—there focused more on their leisure activities. That is why we have big blood drives during the summer and winter time," she said.For more information about scheduling a donation appointment, click here.
