UK, Florida compete in blood drive

UK students can compete against the University of Florida this week in the annual Big Blue Slam Blood Drive.

Every time someone donates blood, the Kentucky Blood Center will give $10 to a DanceBlue team of the donor’s choice, according to a news release.

Blood donors will receive a T-shirt and a chance to win an entertainment package, which includes a 3-D TV, Blu-Ray home theater system, XBox 360 and a popcorn machine.

Students can donate blood at the Singletary Center for the Arts from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Kentucky Blood Center locations at Beaumont and Andover will also be open 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
