United Blood Services to hold blood donation event in honor of 'Back to the Future'

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The United Blood Services is hosting an event in honor of the day Marty McFly went Back to the Future.

In the 80’s movie Back to the Future, McFly set a time machine to transport him to October 21, 2015. United blood Services say that due to advancements in technology, everything from the movie is closer to reality, with the exception of flying cars.

Even with all the technological advancements, United Blood Services say that they still need blood donors, which is why they will be holding a donation event on Wednesday, October 21 from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Baton Rouge Donor Center at 8234 One Calais Avenue.

Those who donate will be entered for a chance to win a self-balancing hover board, like the one featured in the movie.

United Blood Services says that all blood types are needed.
