Battle of the Cities blood drive in Vineland this Wednesday

VINELAND — First responders from Bridgeton, Millville and Vineland are helping patients battle illness and injury by hosting a friendly blood drive competition to see who can recruit the most eligible blood donors.

The 4th Annual Battle of the Cities Blood Drive will be held 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Wednesday, June 29 at the John F. Scarpa Technical Education Center of Cumberland County, 3400 College Dr.

Community members are invited to donate blood and cast a vote for Bridgeton/Millville or Vineland, with the winning city or cities earning a plaque and bragging rights.

As a thank-you for helping, in honor of the new Baz Luhrmann film, Elvis, all who come to give in the month of June will be automatically entered for a chance to win a VIP trip to Graceland for two, including round-trip airfare to Memphis, plus a three-night stay at The Guest House and Elvis Entourage VIP tour, courtesy of Graceland, a custom-wrapped Gibson Epiphone guitar and more. Additionally, those who come to donate June 1-30 will also receive a $5 e-gift card to a merchant of choice.
