We’re Going Virtual…

We are excited to announce the 26th Annual Cruise Aboard the LifeLine®, signature fundraising event.  For the first time since its inception, the fundraiser, to include our well-known silent auction, will be a Virtual Cruise!  The entire event will take place online, launching on World Blood Donor Day, June 14, and running through June 30, 2020.

Learn more about this year’s event at GIVEaPINT.org/Cruise-2020!

The purpose of the virtual fundraiser is to inform our region about the work of the Blood Center and invite our community to support MKBC’s mission of saving lives by partnering with our community to provide a continuous supply of blood products and services.

The virtual Cruise Aboard the LifeLine offers three ways to make a donation to support the collection, processing, and delivery of blood products to 29 hospitals in the region.

  1. Sponsorship opportunities—Sponsors are recognized through social media and at fixed-site Blood Centers
  2. Pledge opportunity—pledge goal is $10,000
  3. Online auction—A display of amazing gifts donated from generous local businesses. Participants have the opportunity to bid on an auction gift or direct a donation towards a Bloodmobile, MKBC’s fleet of trucks, equipment to process blood donations, training kits for phlebotomists, scholarships for high schools students, or operational expenses.

Please visit the site during June to learn more about the work of Miller-Keystone—the daily goal of seeing 400 volunteer blood donors each day, the critical need for blood donations in our communities, blood products used for medical treatments, and first-hand success stories about how donated blood saved lives in our communities.

For sponsorship information or questions, contact Rosanne at develop@GIVEaPINT.org, or 610-419-5259.

This year’s virtual event will reach our entire expanding geographic service region.  The communities we serve will have the opportunity to visit our online site and support our mission.
