Jeremiah Blalock may become a regular blood donor.
In just his first time donating, the Braden River High School senior rolled away in a brand new 2012 KIA Soul. Blalock was the winner of the “Give from the Heart, Get into a Soul” campaign from Friendly KIA of New Port Richey and Florida Blood Services.
More than 50,000 donors gave blood during the four-month contest. Seventeen finalists were chosen, one per week, and Blalock was the lucky winner in the grand prize drawing held March 10.
