Give blood, get a SCarowinds ticket!by CBCC
We have teamed up with Carowinds to host our second annual Stick or Treat Blood Drive on Friday, Sept. 29, from 3-8 p.m. As a thank you, the first 250 presenting donors will receive a FREE admission ticket to SCarowinds (while supplies last).
“We always look forward to this time of year,” said Laresa Thompson, public relations manager of Carowinds. “Not just because of the excitement of SCarowinds, but also because we are able to give back to our community in such a fun and meaningful way. Knowing that the blood donated at this drive will help patients in our local hospitals makes this even more meaningful.”
CBCC President and CEO Martin Grable shares Thompson’s sentiments.
“Our donors and staff members love this blood drive,” he said. “What a great way to bring awareness to the importance of donating blood. We couldn’t ask for a better partner in our lifesaving mission.”
CBCC will bring its Community Bloodmobiles to Carowinds on Friday, Sept. 29. Registration will be held on site. All presenting donors will receive a FREE Stick or Treat T-shirt as a thank you for rolling up their sleeves and giving blood.
To further support patients in our local hospitals, CBCC and Carowinds will be selling chocolate bars to raise money for Levine Children’s Hospital. Three lucky winners will receive a free SCarowinds admission ticket with their chocolate. The $2 bars are available at CBCC’s Charlotte, Gastonia, Concord and Hickory Donation Centers now until supplies run out. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to LCH.
SCarowinds, Carowinds’ annual Halloween haunt attraction, runs select nights September 15 through October 29. Guests can check out more than 16 haunted attractions and shows, and some of the top roller coasters in the nation. For more information, visit carowinds.com.
