The blood drive.
Linn Fire & EMS will be hosting a blood drive on Friday, September 28th from 1:30 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. Every donor during the month of September will be entered to win Green Bay Packer tickets, along with a free child admission with the purchase of an adult admission to China Lights Panda-Mania at Boerner Botanical Gardens. Also, due to the great need for O- and O+ blood, any blood donated during September 21st -30th, from any O- and O+ donors over 18 years old, will receive a $20 Amazon e-gift card. This is one of the most eventful blood drives in the county, so come out and donate, save lives, and possibly leave with a gift. The blood drive will be held at the Town of Linn Fire & EMS building at N1457 Hillside Rd, Lake Geneva. Appointments are recommended, but not necessary. Contact Kim to make an appointment at the email or call the blood center at 877-232-4376.
