Pirates Out for Blood

pirate-heart-blood-challenge2012The Fernandina Pirates Club, Inc. members are out for blood, literally. You may remember the Fernandina Pirates finished 2nd to the Jacksonville Jaguars in the district last year for the number of useable pints donated to the Georgia Florida Blood Alliance, and this year these Pirates want to win!

Saturday, August 25, 2012, the Pirates will have buses from the Blood Alliance in the Publix parking lot on Sadler Road, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Wicked Wanda, the club’s Blood Drive Chairperson has pillaged and plundered to find some of the hottest tickets in town.

All donors will be entered into a raffle drawing for the following admission tickets:
-Jaguars vs. the Atlanta Falcons pre-season tickets for August 30, 2012
-Amelia Island Blues Festival tickets
-Amelia Island Museum of History tickets
-Amelia River Cruises tickets
-Island Falls tickets
-Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens tickets

The Sons of the American Legion Squadron 54 and the VFW Post 4351 Men’s Auxiliary will be providing melon slices, hot dogs and drinks for the first 100 donors.

Walk ups are always welcome, but appointments can be made at IGiveBlood.com until the 24th of August.

Having received a Resolution from the Board of County Commissioners of Nassau County as well as a Proclamation from the City of Fernandina Beach Commissioners recognizing the club for their ongoing community service and charitable work, members of the Pirates Club truly are our community’s “Goodwill Ambassadors to the World” as designated by both local government entities.
