Philadelphia, PA (June 19, 2018): The 93.3 WMMR-FM Preston & Steve® Show’s 13th Annual I Bleed For Preston & Steve Blood Drive produced 1,128 units of blood (including 147 Power Red donations) to benefit The American Red Cross Penn-Jersey Blood Services Region. In addition, the event raised over $800 for Alex’s Lemonade Stand.
The annual collection took place on Saturday, June 16, 2018 at the Valley Forge Casino Resort Event Center in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.
Radio station listeners showed up in record numbers to help save lives during a time of the year when the American Red Cross needs it the most, as summer sets in, schools let out, and families begin vacations plans.
Donors were treated to a new Preston & Steve T-shirt and an official 2018 I Bleed For Preston & Steve Pint Glass, provided by Window Nation. In addition, hundreds of donors were randomly selected to receive a pair of tickets to a summer concert, courtesy of Live Nation. Free food and samples were also provided, courtesy of Jersey Mike’s Subs, Rita’s Water Ice, and Bob Evans Restaurants.
Several companies brought activities to keep children busy while their parents donated blood, including Paint-a-Treasure/Paint-N-Take Art Studio from Haddon Heights, New Jersey and Aim High Studio from Fairview Village, PA.
To date, the I Bleed For Preston & Steve Blood Drive has collected over 14,967 pints of blood!
