Every donor who registers to give blood Nov. 1 through Nov. 23 will be invited to fill out a ballot to vote for either the Ducks or the Beavers to win this year’s Civil War Blood Drive.

Each donor who completes a ballot will be entered to win a pair of tickets to the 2014 Civil War football game at OSU’s Reser Stadium on Saturday, Nov. 29.

The university with the most submitted ballots will be announced at the Civil War Game. Follow the score at Ducks have won the past four years, and we want to make sure we keep up that winning streak!

Lane Blood Center is working with the American Red Cross, Oregon State University Alumni Association and University of Oregon Alumni Association during the three-week, statewide campaign to increase community blood donations before the critical holiday period, when donation rates tend to drop off.

Donors can give at any Lane Blood mobile drive or at our center, 2211 Willamette St., in Eugene. Call 541-484-9111 to make an appointment. Or look for us outside the University of Oregon Bookstore at the corner of East 13th Avenue and Kincaid Street the week of Nov. 17-21. We’ll be running a campus blood drive all week.

Use the hashtag #civilwarselfie all month long to let others know you’re saving lives and helping the Ducks take home the trophy.
