Ghosts, goblins, costumes, candy, a trick or a treat, vampires and blood. For BloodCenter of Wisconsin, Halloween is all about the blood – for the patients who need it in our community. BloodCenter will be holding a Halloween Blood Drive at the Harley-Davidson Museum, 400 W. Canal Street in Milwaukee on Thursday, October 27 from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. To schedule an appointment please visit www.bcw.edu or call 1-877-BE-A-HERO. Walk-ins are welcome.
All attempting blood donors will receive a treat – a limited edition t-shirt and a chance to win a limo ride to visit a haunted house. Donors will also be entered in a sweepstakes for a chance to win one of ten family four-packs of tickets to the Harley-Davidson Museum or a Harley-Davidson® leather jacket. There is no trick to saving lives.
