American Red Cross

DARLINGTON, SOUTH CAROLINA (Dec. 10, 2014) – Darlington Raceway will once again team up with the American Red Cross Blood Services Region to host a special holiday blood drive on Thursday, Dec. 18 from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Appointments are encouraged and can be made in advance by visiting www.RedCrossBlood.org and entering sponsor code “darlingtonraceway” or by calling 1-800-REDCROSS.

Blood donors of all types, particularly O negative, A negative and B negative, and platelet donors are urged to make a donation appointment. Eligible donors with types O negative, A negative and B negative blood are encouraged to donate double red cells where available.

For each donation, fans will get a behind-the-scenes look at the Lady in Black, which includes the opportunity to drive a paced lap with their personal vehicle around the Darlington oval.

“Our local community has shown tremendous generosity at our events this year. This is another opportunity for them to do something special during the holidays by donating a unit of blood in support of the American Red Cross,” Darlington Raceway President Chip Wile said.

This is the third blood drive Darlington Raceway has hosted in 2014.

In two previous blood collection events this year, the track has helped generate 354 units of blood donated. With each unit having the ability to benefit up to three people, Darlington Raceway’s efforts have helped approximately 1,062 people in the local community.

Since 2005, Darlington Raceway has collected 2,022 units of blood for the American Red Cross, potentially saving the lives of 6,066 people in their community.
