GROSSMONT COLLEGE (Press Release) — Staff members of Griffin Radio, the student-operated, on-campus radio station, will attend and man their own exhibit booth at the San Diego Blood Bank’s Chargers Blood Drive XXXII, to be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 30, at the Town and Country Resort Hotel & Convention Center in Mission Valley. It will be Griffin Radio’s 13th consecutive year to appear at the Chargers Blood Drive.

Blood donors at the Chargers Blood Drive will be awarded a voucher that may be redeemed for a T-shirt, as well as a VIP wristband for the autograph line. Donors also will have the opportunity to purchase an entry to win a 2011 Honda CRV or Honda Insight Hybrid, donated by the Honda Dealers of San Diego County, which will be given away at the Chargers Blood Drive on the 30th. Participants who do not plan to donate blood, but would still like to meet the Chargers and enjoy the festivities at the Town and Country will be charged a $5 entry fee ($1 for children). Blood donors will be refunded the admission price after they donate. Donors will be treated to a variety of food, entertainment and other goodies at the blood drive.
