Kentucky Blood Center’s annual Battle of the Bluegrass will run August 23 to September 3. During the event, blood donors can give blood and vote for their favorite team — the University of Kentucky Wildcats or the University of Louisville Cardinals.
All donors will receive a Battle of the Bluegrass tshirt. The blood drive will take place locally from noon to 7 p.m., August 26, in the Bloodmobile at Whitesburg Plaza. The drive is sponsored by the Kentucky Blood Center and Whitesburg Walmart. For more information, call (800) 775-2522.
