Central Kentucky Blood Center organizing contests, big prizes for donations

As it gets colder, The Central Kentucky Blood Center is hoping to fight a drop in donations by offering a prize package worth braving the elements. During the center’s "Donate, then Hibernate" contest period, running from Dec. 19 to Jan. 31, everyone who donates blood will be entered to win a home entertainment center, consisting of a 50-inch 3D Smart TV, a Blu-ray home theater system, an Xbox 360 with Kinect and a popcorn machine. One of the first chances local residents can get to enter the contest will come next Friday, Dec. 23, when the KBC Bloodmobile will be parked in front of Wal-Mart at the Prestonsburg Village shopping center. The blood drive will take place from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. In addition to being entered in the contest and providing someone in need with life-saving blood, all donors at the Dec. 23 blood drive will receive a $10 Wal-Mart gift card. To schedule a donation, visit or call (800) 775-2522.
