"2017 We're Still Here" Blood Drive

Howdy Phlock!

"We're Still Here" for the 19th MOTM Blood Drive! Last year we collected 208 pints. First time over 200! First time we had two clubs, "Parrot Heads of Eastern Massachusetts and "Fins of the Valley" donate as a Club! Ask me about reserving a bloodmobile for your club. I need your help!

For the last ELEVEN years we have been the largest blood drive in the Keys. A DOZEN years in a row has a nice sound to it! Can we collect over 200 pints for the second year in a row?

Once again we'll have at least two, maybe three bloodmobiles or possibly FOUR sitting in front of the Casa on Seminole, Thursday, November 2nd from 9 am to 5 pm and on Friday, November 3rd from 9 am to 1 pm.

Please send an email to MOTMBLOODDRIVE@AOL.COM with your NAME, the DATE and TIME you would like to donate. Just in case I can talk the folks at Oneblood into doing another special LIMITED edition shirt for the participants, please INCLUDE a shirt size.

So flood my inbox with those appointments!!!

Everyone can take home a souvenir from Key West. You have a chance to do something extraordinary, leave a souvenir in the Keys, "The Gift of Life!"

I look forward to getting an email from you and seeing you out in front of the Casa!

Thank you,

I want to thank all the attendees that make this event such a success! You may contact me at if you have any questions. Please put MOTM in the subject.

Thank you,
