A History of Community Service
April 20, 2022

On Thursday, April 7, more than 200 business and community leaders gathered at the Centennial Event Center at the Homewood Suites (Center Valley, PA) to celebrate Miller-Keystone Blood Center’s 50th Anniversary.

The event marked 50 years of lifesaving service to our community, and celebrated many of the individuals and organizations who have contributed to our success – including our blood donors, blood drive sponsors, volunteers and more.

Emcee for the evening was Ashley Russo of ASR Media, and serving as pledge chair was Tony DaRe of BSI Corporate Benefits.  The evening also featured the debut of the Blood Center’s new mascot, Half-Pint.

The highlight of the evening came when transfusion recipient Sofia Groves sharing her inspiring story.  Her story concluded without a dry eye in the room, and resulted in a standing ovation.  We sincerely thank Sofia and her family for graciously spending the evening with us.
