4th Annual Aurora Community Gift of Life Blood Drive




Heartland Blood Centers and West Aurora School District 129 will once again partner to host a large-scale community blood drive event on Saturday, July 11, 2009.  We invite all members in Aurora and surrounding areas to join us in our effort to create awareness about the importance of blood donation for our community. 


The purpose of the event is to create a sense of bonding among West Aurora staff and community members through a philanthropic event that benefits patients in our community who are in need of life-saving blood transfusions.  There are 32 hospitals that solely rely on Heartland Blood Centers for their blood product needs – including Rush-Copley Medical Center and Provena Mercy Center in Aurora.  A summertime event, like this, will encourage donors to continue giving during the summer months, as the need for blood never takes a vacation.  Let’s join together again and help share the gift of life with our community members in need.      


Location: West Aurora High School enter door #22

Date:  July 11, 2009

Time:  7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.


All donors will be entered into our great raffle drawing for a chance to win prizes ranging from gift baskets, to gift certificates - including a $500 gift certificate to Best Buy, a $500 gas card!  Enjoy free food and beverages plus all donors will receive TWO Oberweis MOOLA cards preloaded with a free quart of ice cream and other great gifts!


We thank our generous event sponsors and individual donors:

Café Prepay, Chartwells, Chicago Premium Outlets, and AlphaGraphics
