Feeling well and healthy? Then you may be eligible to save a life this weekend and get some goodies, to boot.
On Saturday, Feb. 16 donors who are able to give blood at any of the six Bay area Golden Corral locations, will be treated to a voucher for a free lunch buffet and movie ticket.
Florida Blood Services mobile collection units will be on site from 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. in Hillsborough, Pinellas and Polk counties for the special blood drive.
In addition to the freebies, donors will get a health check that includes blood pressure and cholesterol checks.
Donors must be at least 16 years old, weigh at least 110 lbs. and be in good health. A photo I.D. is required to donate.
