You could win a seven-day cruise aboard the Norwegian Dawn to Bermuda by taking some time to "give the gift of life" at a blood drive close to you in September!

The American Red Cross--Northern New England Blood Services Region--will be holding a number of blood drive events in the coming days to alleviate a critical blood shortage. All presenting donors in the month of September will receive a round of golf at participating golf courses, and chance to win a cruise aboard the Norwegian Dawn to Bermuda from Boston (not redeemable for cash and non-transferable).
