NewsJunkies!! Your community needs you!  It's fast, its easy, you'll get some great food/snacks, and you are going to help save a life!!!  It's the 4th annual "Race Against The Clock" 24-hour blood drive with Townsquare Media and United Blood Services!

Starting on Thursday, July 7th at 7:00 going all the way until Friday, July 8th at 7:00 a.m. Townsquare Media and United Blood Services will be teaming up to schedule appointments and take walk-ins for folks wanted to share the gift of life - blood! 

By sharing your pint of blood you will receive (free!) a t-shirt, a pint of Blue Bell Ice Cream, a delicious McDonald's frozen strawberry lemonade coupon, and a coupon for a free pizza from Papa John's!  You get that just for donating.  But, you have a chance at winning even more prize. 

After you donate a pint of blood during our blood drive, you will be entered to win dozens of prizes like a 46 inch LCD Flat Screen, an IPod Touch, Visa Gift Cars for gas, massage gift cards, movie passes and tons of other great prizes.
