When you give blood, you will receive a commemorative We Remember 9/11 patriotic blood hero t-shirt to wear with pride! To celebrate football season, donors will also receive a copy of The CJ Solar Band's "We Bleed Purple and Gold" CD or free download for your next tailgate. In addition, donors will be entered to win, over $600.00 in prizes and packages from The Quarters, one of two couples packages to the Belle of Baton Rouge Hotel and Casino, One of Seven Yearly Memberships to Bally's Total Fitness, and many more gift cards and merchandise from local businesses.
