BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KERO) — One local blood donor is now also a new owner of a car after taking part in a special blood drive.
Over the past four months, every blood donor at Houchin Community Blood Bank was entered to win a new 2021 Chevy Trailblazer, courtesy of Three-Way Chevrolet.
Thursday Houchin and Three-Way announced the winner at Houchin’s Bolthouse donor center. The winner, Martin Ramirez said he was surprised and excited.
"So it was like a surprise because it was on Monday. I just got a random call. And they told me on Monday when it got better and I guess I was up for a run for the cars. Now I guess I won the car."
There were three runners-up, each given a key to the new car. Lucky Martin's key was the only one that successfully unlocked the car meaning he was the winner.
