Clinton Memorial Hospital in Wilmington will host a blood drive Friday, July 10 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the hospital cafeteria, 610 West Main St. Everyone who registers to donate will receive a free “Donor Surf Co.” surfboard T-shirt and everyone age 18 and older will also be entered in the Community Blood Center (CBC) “Get on Board – Give Blood Summer Blood Drive” drawing to win an expense-paid deluxe Hawaii vacation for two.

The grand prize includes air travel and deluxe accommodations for eight nights at two island locations. All taxes, fees and meals are included. The vacation package also includes prepaid activities and sight-seeing excursions, plus all ground transportation.

Everyone age 18 and older who registers to donate with CBC May 4 through August 28 will be automatically entered in the “Get on Board – Give Blood Summer Blood Drive” drawing.

Eligible donors can enter the drawing a second time when they register for a second donation during the blood drive period. Official rules are available at www.givingblood.org.

Anyone who registers to donate June 15 through Saturday, July 25 at any CBC Donor Center and most CBC mobile blood drives will receive CBC’s second special-edition, Hawaiian surf board design t-shirt of the summer.
