SARASOTA, Fla. – A great recurring summer event continues this weekend, the Boots vs. Badges competition for blood donations. This is a friendly campaign among our first responders to see who can help the SunCoast Blood Bank collect the most blood and platelets.

This final leg of the 9th annual campaign will be held at CoCo Plum Plaza in North Port, this Saturday July 26 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. If you can't make it to North Port on Saturday, check with your local first responders who are hosting blood drives at their stations with the goal of collecting a total of 300 units of blood during the campaign.

The winning agency receives a trophy and bragging rights!

And remember, when you donate, you're donating locally. 

SCBB provides 100% of the blood products and services for Sarasota Memorial Healthcare System, Manatee Memorial Hospital, Lakewood Ranch Medical Center, Doctors Hospital of Sarasota, Complex Care Hospital at Ridgelake, HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital of Sarasota, Surgery Center at St. Andrews Venice, North Port Emergency Room, Fawcett Memorial Hospital of Port Charlotte, Englewood Community Hospital, DeSoto Memorial Hospital and Bayflite 2.

For SCBB donor locations and more information, visit www.scbb.org or call 1-866-97-BLOOD.
