Gail Singer blood drive kicks off today
Chairman Stephen Singer said more than 1,100 people had pre-registered as of Monday night to donate blood today or Wednesday at the Radisson Hotel downtown. Singer said that already puts this year’s drive 20 percent ahead of last year’s pace, which brought in more than 1,700 pints.
The family started the drive to honor the memory of Gail Singer, the wife of Stephen’s brother, Gary. She died of leukemia in 1984 at age 29.
“It’s not about the record,” he said. “It’s been a wonderful experience. We’ve made lots of new friends and helped save lots of lives.”
He said businesses contributing merchandise for the annual donor appreciation bags have made the giveaway a staple for annual donors.
