On Sunday, August 15, 2010 our council held another successful Blood Drive as we were

able to collect 96 pints of blood which was just 4 pints below our goal of 100 pints. The

$15.00 gift card to Target proved to be a great incentive as we saw a lot of new faces.

New faces are a very positive for future Blood Drives as we hope to see those people at

future Blood drives.

I want to mention a special word of thanks to the 18 Brother Knights that came out to

donate. That number is down from past drives but we had a number of Brother Knights

that donated on the Alyx machine at our last drive and were not eligible to donate this


We awarded three door prizes and the winners were Greg Haluzak who won a certificate

for a Luxury Car Wash at Handle With Care Car Wash located in Lake in the Hills.

Rosemary Gruenes won a certificate for a free oil change at Merlins 200,000 Mile

Shop in Algonquin. Tonia Gonzalez won a $10.00 certificate to The Thirsty Whale

in Algonquin. Michelle Perna won a $10.00 certificate to Buffalo Wild Wings in


As you know we increased our goal to 80 pints per drive and this drive really help us

get back on track. I would love to see this same kind of turnout at our next Blood Drive

on October 17, 2010. If we could just double the turnout from our council from 18 to

36 Brother Knights I know we could make it. I urge you to make every effort to attend

our next drive on October 17, 2010 and bring your family members and neighbors.

If you are not able to make our blood drive dates you can still donate so our council

will receive credit. Just make an appointment at one of the LifeSource Centers and

tell the staff that the donation is being made for code U202 which is our council. Last

year our council picked up 21 pints at the various LifeSource Donor Centers. The

closest center is in Crystal Lake, IL and others are available on the LifeSource website
