SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (July 17, 2023) — Saratoga Casino Hotel is teaming up with the American Red Cross to host a blood drive on Monday, July 24 from noon to 6pm inside the hotel ballroom.
“The American Red Cross is extremely grateful for the longstanding relationship we have shared with Saratoga Casino. Every 2 seconds someone needs a blood transfusion. Saratoga Casino provides awareness of the constant need for blood donations and provides an exceptional venue in our community for blood drives,” said Sonja Ronovech, Regional Donor Services Executive for the American Red Cross.
Schedule an appointment to give blood by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org and enter sponsor code SARATOACASINO, calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or enabling the Blood Donor Skill on any Alexa Echo device.
“Our team members and community always respond with great generosity to blood drives,” said Alex Tucker, Chief Operating Officer at Saratoga Casino Hotel. “To date, our drives have collected over 1,600 blood donations and each blood donation can go on to directly help more than one patient in need. We consider ourselves lucky to live and work in a community so dedicated to supporting others.”
Thanks to Discovery, all who come to give blood in July will receive a Shark Week T-shirt.
