New Car Runs with Your Blood!



Sort of. Bloodmobile to visit Original Ripley’s Odditorium in St. Augustine – blood donors eligible to win a brand new 2012 Honda Civic!

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! and The Blood Alliance are hoping your blood donation will put you behind the wheel of a new car.  The Blood Alliance Bloodmobile will be parked in front of the original Ripley’s at 19 San Marco Avenue in downtown St. Augustine from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on both Saturday, December 17 and Monday, December 19.  All blood donors will be entered into a random drawing to win the car, courtesy of Lucas Honda in Jacksonville, and will also receive free admission to the museum on those days.

“Pardon the pun, but it’s a fantastic way for us to rev up some attention to the important work the The Blood Alliance does - and a great way for us to thank those that support them,” said Ripley’s General Manager Kim Kiff.

According to the The Blood Alliance a painless donation of one pint takes less than one hour and can save up to three lives, with all of the blood donated staying here in the Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia community. Officials say they need to collect 350 pints of blood on average each day to keep up with area hospital needs.  Those unable to attend the events at Ripley’s, may visit to find out how to be eligible for the drawing (to be held June 30, 2012) or can call The Blood Alliance at (888) 998-2243.For more information about the events at Ripley’s, contact Ralf Ingwersen at (904) 824-1606.
