BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A local business is teaming with Houchin Blood Bank this weekend for a blood drive.
Outdoor Galore is sponsoring the second annual 'Givin, Grillin and Chillin Blood Drive'.
The store is offering prizes totaling $50,000, including outdoor furniture, a fire pit, and barbecues.
Two donors will also have the chance to win a $10,000 outdoor kitchen.
But the prizes aren't the only reason to donate.
"If you just knew and realized the difference you're making in someone's life and I'm here to testify to that," said Chad Hathaway, a blood transfusion recipient. "I wouldn't be here today without the people that gave blood and kept me alive."
The blood drive is taking place Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Outdoor Galore on 6801 White Lane.
