American Red Cross holding St. Patrick's Day-themed blood drive

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The American Red Cross is celebrating Saint Patrick's Day a little early this year.

The Holiday Hero Saint Patrick's Day blood drive is going on today. Everyone who gives blood gets a hearty, Irish-themed meal, including dessert.

Donators also get entered into a raffle to win two tickets to the second and third rounds of the NCAA tournament games hosted at the KFC Yum Center on March 19 and 21.

"We're really encouraging donors to come and roll up a sleeve and help us restock our shelves after the recent winter weather," said Lindsay English, a spokeswoman for the American Red Cross. "We saw lot of blood drives canceled because of all the rain, the snow, the freezing rain that we experienced."

English says there are blood drives seven days a week. Today's blood drive runs until 7 p.m. and is at the Kentucky Fair and Expo Center in the South Wing C lobby.
