Las Vegas artists unite to raise blood at the 3rd annual Aerial Fitness Blood Drive with the United Blood Services
Aerial artists, contortionists, singers, belly dancers and ballroom dancers will all come together to perform in Aerial Fitness’s show “Heroism”. Aerial Fitness will host a community Blood drive on Saturday, September 24, 2016 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with the United Blood Services (UBS) of Las Vegas at City Athletic Club. Shows will start every hour from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Kristi Toguchi, owner of Aerial Fitness, is hoping to raise awareness and support the blood needs in the valley by hosting a Community Blood Drive in Loving Memory of her father, Mr. Terry
Toguchi, whom during his lifetime made 142 lifesaving blood donations. Mr. Toguchi was inducted into the Hawaii’s Blood Bank Wall of Fame for his generous contributions. Toguchi hopes to raise at least 10 times her father’s amount in her lifetime.
Toguchi said “I am moved by the amount of people who have reached out to me to help support this cause that is so special to me. From show tickets to performers donating their amazing talents, I know that one day I will deWinitely surpass my personal goal.”
Toguchi said “Every year our Blood drive is growing. This will be our 3rd year in a row. Last year we raised a total of 36 pints. This year I hope to raise 100 pints. “
All donors will receive a voucher good for a ticket to Hypnosis Unleashed courtesy of Kevin Lepine, a goodie bag from Bodi Cafe, 500 Donor points which is equal to a free Movie ticket, and Aerial Fitness and friends will provide fun and free entertainment throughout the day.
As Southern Nevada’s community blood provider, United Blood Services relies on blood donations to make sure blood is readily available for anyone in need. UBS currently has a need for ALL blood types, especially O-Negative blood. O-Negative is the universal blood type and the only type that can be transfused to patients with different blood types.
