Washington Capitals and Inova Beat Blood Drive Record

The Washington Capitals and Inova partnered for a very successful blood drive, with 609 units of blood donated by 642 fans.  The event, held at the Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Ballston on Saturday, was the highest yielding blood drive hosted by a D.C. sports team to date.

Donors received various gifts including a limited edition Alexander Semin T-shirt, a bobblehead doll, and the possibility of winning a 22″ Sharp TV with built-in DVD player.

The Caps and Inova will be hosting another blood drive on Saturday, July 24, in Sterling, Va.

A single donation of blood can potentially save up to three lives.  There’s hope that the 609 units will help over 1,800 patients.
