Oklahoma blood donors have a chance to win a new Buick Verano this Saturday

One lucky donor who gives blood at selected Bob Moore Auto Group dealerships across Oklahoma, will drive away with a brand-new Buick Verano. Bob Moore Auto Group is teaming up with Oklahoma Blood Institute to hold a blood drive on Saturday, August 5, at Bob Moore Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Tulsa, located at 46th Street and Memorial Drive, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Five finalists will be chosen from donors who give blood at Bob Moore Auto Group dealership locations only. The odds of winning are expected to be about 1 in 1,000 depending on how many donors participate. The Buick Verano winner will be announced during a ceremony on August 19. 

“The Bob Moore blood drive not only offers our dedicated donors the chance to win a shiny new car, but they get the guarantee that they are saving someone’s life,” said John Armitage, M.D., Oklahoma Blood Institute President and CEO. “One blood donation saves the lives of up to three Oklahomans. Over the last seventeen years, we are so grateful to Bob Moore Auto Group for supporting our life-saving mission and the health of all Oklahomans.” 

Healthy adults, 16* and older, are encouraged to give blood. Free pizza from Papa John’s Pizza and other refreshments will be served. In addition to the chance to win a car, each donor will receive a pass for two to Safari Joe’s H2O Water Park, a coupon for an order of Papa John’s Garlic Knots, and a “Keep it Local” T-shirt. 

Oklahoma Blood Institute relies on approximately 1,200 volunteer donors per day to provide every drop of blood needed by patients in 90% of hospitals and medical facilities statewide.  This includes all Children’s, Veterans and Indian Hospitals. Oklahoma Blood Institute recently equipped all air ambulances in the state with O-negative blood to provide more immediate transfusions to trauma patients.
