GREATER MEDIA Rock WMMR/PHILADELPHIA and the AMERICAN RED CROSS teamed up to replenish blood supplies in advance of the JULY 4 holiday demand crunch. Morning guys PRESTON & STEVE's held their 1,000 Pint Blood Drive on SATURDAY (6/16) and collected 1,078 usable pints of blood -- beating the previous record of 856 pints, set by the PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES in AUGUST 2006.
Every donor received a souvenir "I Bleed for PRESTON & STEVE" pint glass (plus T-shirt), as well as a free pint of PRESTON & STEVE's GADZOOKS! ice cream. Hundreds of donors also received a free concert ticket to see DEF LEPPARD on JULY 14 at the TWEETER CENTER.
