Anyone donating blood now through Sept. 10 with Vitalant will be automatically entered to win a 2021 VW Tiguan 2.0T S.
The seven Valley Volkswagen dealers have donated the car and partnered with Vitalant in the 13th annual campaign to help inspire more people to give blood this summer. Ten finalists will be drawn to participate in the grand prize ceremony.
Visit donors.vitalant.org or call 1-877-25-VITAL (1-877-258-4825) for location information and donation appointments.
During the three-month summer campaign with Valley Volkswagen Dealers, Vitalant hopes to attract nearly 50,000 blood donors to save lives in Arizona hospitals.
“The seven Valley Volkswagen Dealers genuinely believe in giving back to the communities in which we live and do business,” said Lunde’s Peoria Volkswagen GM Troy Dosch on behalf of the dealerships. “What better way is there than to support Vitalant in their efforts to make sure there is an adequate blood supply for those in need.”
Vitalant hopes to motivate people to donate more often this summer to earn additional chances to win the 2021 VW Tiguan.
“While donors are generally eligible to give blood every eight weeks, the majority (65%) donate just once a year,” said Sid Lewis, Sr. Director of Donor Recruitment for the Vitalant Southwest Division.
