Red Cross awards football tickets to donors

The American Red Great Lakes Blood Services Region has awarded four blood donors a pair of tickets to Saturday's big football game between Michigan and Michigan State at Spartan Stadium in East Lansing.

The Run! Pass! Donate! Promotion ran from September 23 through October 20 in the Great Lakes Region.  Everyone who turned out at a Red Cross blood drive could enter for a chance to win one of four pair of tickets to the big game.   

Donors were asked to indicate whether they bleed ‘Green’ or ‘Blue’ when casting their vote.  In the end, 7,123 votes were cast with the Spartans receiving 51 more votes than the Wolverines.   

Mike Reed of DeWitt, Shelly Charles of Swartz Creek, Terry Romska of Gladwin and Tim Wilson of Battle Creek and their guests will be in the stands rooting for their favorite team.   

More than 12,000 whole blood products were collected during the nearly month-long promotion.
