'Battle of the Badges' blood drive set for Aug. 11 at Quality Inn & Suites
The debut of a community blood drive dubbed "The Battle of the Badges" will take place from noon to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 11, at Quality Inn & Suites, 8250 Park Road, Batavia.
It's being presented by Tompkins Financial for the American Red Cross.
The question looms: Who will be the 2016 First Responder Champion for the premiere of this contest?
A Trooper? Sheriff's Deputy? A city or village Police Officer? City firefighter? A volunteer for a town fire department? A Mercy EMS technician? Ambulance personnel?
All help save lives on the job and by donating blood, they help save lives off the job, too.
