CARLSBAD, Calif. - 20 little vampires, children of blood donors, donned capes and fangs for a ride on The Dragon coaster at Legoland California to remind people that every two seconds real live people in the U.S. need blood transfusions. From Oct. 14 through 28, every person who donates blood to the American Red Cross in Los Angeles, San Diego, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, Ventura and Imperial Counties will be entered into a drawing for a family four-pack of tickets to LEGOLAND California's Brick-or-Treat celebration. Multiple winners will be chosen at each location from among all presenting donors who fill out an entry form. LEGOLAND is donating 5,000 tickets valued at $335,000 dollars – that's the largest amount ever donated by LEGOLAND California to any non-profit organization at one time.
Teaming up with the American Red Cross to lure blood donors from seven different counties into becoming heroes by saving a life, any healthy person age 17 or older and weighing at least 110 pounds may be eligible to donate blood.
