Orange & Blue event this week

For the 29th year, fans of the Tennessee Vols and Kentucky Cats will be competing to see who can donate the most blood for their local blood center. For the past several years, the Vols fans have been trounced losing most recently by 600 units. This year, however, MEDIC Regional Blood Center is hoping that Vols fans can turn it around.

Donors may leave the blood drive down a pint, but they’ll be leaving with a lot more. Not only will donors know they’re helping a sick patient at a local hospital, they’ll also receive the annual Orange/Blue t-shirt, a coupon for a free pizza from Papa John’s, a free Chick-fil-A Sandwich, a free Wendy’s Frosty, a free appetizer from Texas Roadhouse, and free admission to Fantasy of Trees.
