The Annual Wristband Blood Drive Returns

Houchin Community Blood Bank is sponsoring its annual Fair Wristband Blood Drive from Monday, September 10 through Wednesday, September 12, 2018. 

During the three day drive, donors will be entered to win a free carnival ride wristband with 18 winners each day. Free adult admission passes to the Fair will be available to all donors, while supplies last. The Kern County Fair runs from September 19th to September 30th. This is possible thanks to their sponsor, LeBeau Thelen LLP.  

Over the three day drive, a total of 54 ride wristband vouchers will be given away!

To enter this giveaway donors must donate Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday from 9 am to 6 pm.
You can visit one of two locations in Bakersfield:

  • 5901 Truxtun Avenue

To be a blood donor, you must be in good health, weight at least 110 pounds and be 18 years of age or older. If you are 16 or 17-years-old, you can donate with parental consent.  All you have to bring is a photo ID with your date of birth.
