The raffle prizes offered at this week’s Community Blood Drive will look much like these from June 

The Webster Community Blood Drive will return to St. Paul’s Church and the Webster Rec Center this week,  and a new feature that was introduced at June’s drive will be making a return appearance.

The semi-annual two-day blood drive, heralded by the huge white signs placed all around town, is always one of the most popular and best attended drives of the entire year. It stands out among all others by the tremendous support it receives from Webster businesses.

Like in June, instead of receiving a packet of coupons, every presenting donor will be handed ten raffle tickets, which can be used to take chances on more than two dozen different prizes provided by local businesses.

The response to the raffles was quite positive in June, so organizers have decided to bring it back again.

The raffle prizes at this week’s drive include:

  • Gift certificates from Barry’s Old School Irish
  • Beauty products from Beyond Cuts Salon
  • Gift certificates from The Chicken Coop
  • Gift cards from Eastway Liquor
  • Gift basket from Kittelberger Florist
  • Grumblers and pint glasses from Knucklehead Craft Brewing
  • Free month of classes from Matsunami Karate
  • Gift certificate from Natural Alternatives
  • Free oil change from Ron’s Auto Repair
  • Gift certificate from Rubino’s
  • Fruit gift basket from Schutt’s Apple Mill
  • 10 free classes from Strike Back Martial Arts
  • Set of eight Waterford wine glasses from The Garage Sale Store
  • A free ice cream cake from The Goodie Shoppe
  • Free month’s membership from World Gym
  • Gift certificate from La Bella Vita

One of the most popular coupons of all — from Bruster’s — will be returning. Every presenting donor will receive Bruster’s “Pint for a Pint” coupon, good for a free pint of ice cream or a free ice cream cone.

Wait! There’s  more! On top of all that, each donor will also be handed a free t-shirt from the Red Cross (while supplies last).

The Webster Community Blood Drive is scheduled for Wednesday October 11 at St. Paul’s Church, 783 Hard Road, and Thursday October 12 at the Webster Recreation Center, 1350 Chiyoda Drive, from noon to 7 pm each day. You can make an appointment by calling 1-800-REDCROSS (1-800-733-2767) or by logging onto http://www.redcrossblood.org. Walk-ins are also welcome.
