ENTERCOM COMMUNICATIONS Classic Rock WROQ-F (CLASSIC ROCK 101.1)/GREENVILLE-SPARTANBURG-COLUMBIA, SC, and Active Rock WTPT (93.3 THE PLANET)/GREENVILLE-SPARTANBURG-COLUMBIA, SC, wrapped up their annual "Rock N' Roll Up Your Sleeve" blood drive last weekend, with over 870 listeners donating blood at various locations.
The two-day event was hosted at WALMARTS across the upstate SOUTH CAROLINA region and proved to be the largest blood drive in the area. The 870 pints donated this year brought the total donations to over 7,500 pints since the drive started 11 years ago.
Any individual who donated received a free, customized "Rock ‘N’ Roll Up Your Sleeve" T-shirt, as well as was entered into a drawing for a pair of tickets to see DEF LEPPARD on OCTOBER 16th at COLONIAL LIFE ARENA in COLUMBIA or qualified to win an autographed PAPA ROACH guitar.
“We are grateful to have CLASSIC ROCK 101.1 and 93.3 THE PLANET embrace our mission as their own, and for the hundreds of listeners who rocked and rolled up their sleeves to save lives right here in our community,” commented THE BLOOD CONNECTION Marketing And Public Relations Manager DONNA EHRLICH.
THE BLOOD CONNECTION needs to collect over 400 pints every day to meet the needs of the area's 27 local hospitals.
