In an effort to increase collections and create greater awareness, the American Red Cross is joining forces for the fourth year with the Anaheim Angels and Los Angeles Dodgers booster clubs for a competition blood drive. Summertime is a challenging time for the community blood program and the American Red Cross Blood Services. Inventories fall to critically low levels, with less than a one-days supply of type O red blood cells available for area patients.
The Freeway Series will take place at the American Red Cross Long Beach Chapter on To Be Announced. (map below) Last year the event saw xxx people roll up their sleeves for their favorite team and give the gift of life. This year all blood drive participants will receive a commemorative Freeway Series Blood Drive t-shirt, an Angel or Dodger ticket and a chance at winning Angel or Dodger memorabilia.
Last year, when all the donations were counted, the Anaheim Angels were victorious with xxx participants while the Los Angeles Dodgers were close behind with xxx participants.
Both Angel and Dodger fans alike are grateful for the opportunity to participate in such a life-saving event and are looking forward to this year to continue the friendly rivalry.
