Cherokee Casino of Fort Gibson to host blood drive

— Cherokee Casino of Fort Gibson is partnering with Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) in a wild blood drive  from 9 a.m. to noon June 28 in the OBI bloodmobile parked at the casino, 103 N. Georgetown Road and U.S. 62 in Fort Gibson. Anyone who is healthy and 17 or older is welcome.

All blood donors at the Cherokee Casino of Fort Gibson blood drive will receive two free tickets to the Oklahoma City Zoo, along with a “Feel Wild” T-shirt.

During June, blood donors have the opportunity to support the Global Blood Fund by forgoing the T-shirt offered in appreciation for giving blood. In turn, OBI will make a monetary contribution of similar value, giving donors the chance to doubly give — first, by giving blood and, then, by allowing OBI to use funds otherwise allocated for a donor incentive item to assist blood centers in developing countries with needed supplies.

Information or to make an appointment: (877) 340-8777 or www.obi.org.
