WMMR/Philadelphia's 11th Annual 'I Bleed For Preston & Steve' Blood Drive A Big Success
June 23, 2016 at 8:30 AM (PT)
GREATER MEDIA Active Rock WMMR/PHILADELPHIA in conjunction with the PENN-JERSEY Blood Services Region of the AMERICAN RED CROSS, combined efforts to collect 1,297 units of blood on SATURDAY, JUNE 18th at Valley Forge Casino Resort- the largest blood drive in the PA, NJ, DE region. Each donation has the potential to save 3 lives.
WMMR Morning duo PRESTON ELLIOTT and STEVE MORRISON were the first to donate at 6a and they hung out after giving blood to greet every person until the final donor left at 4:30p (ET). Each donor left with the newest PRESTON & STEVE t-shirt and a 'Gadzooks!' pint glass (a popular catch-phrase from the show). 600 random donors left with a pair of tickets to one of the six Summer Rock Concerts contributed by Live Nation.
PRESTON & STEVE Show members CASEYBOY, KATHY ROMANO, NICK MCILWAIN and MARISSA MAGNATTA greeted donors as they arrived and prepared to give blood. Even WMMR's midday personality PIERRE ROBERT popped in to thank donors for their act of kindness.
The 11 year total for The PRESTON & STEVE Show Blood Drive is now 12,605 pints of blood.
