LEXINGTON, KY (WAVE) - The Kentucky Blood Center is promoting "Livin' by Givin'" throughout the summer by offering a chance to win some big prizes just by donating blood.

Prizes include a trip to Las Vegas and a 2014 Toyota Corolla.

The public can give blood and enter the contest by donating this summer at one of four donor centers in Lexington, Pikeville and Somerset, at one of the Kentucky Blood Center's mobile drives or a Kentucky Blood Center-affiliated blood drive held in conjunction with businesses, community groups, schools or churches in 60 counties eastern and central Kentucky.

Here is the donation and prize schedule for the rest of the summer:

  • July 1 to September 30: Donors are eligible to win a 2014 Toyota Corolla.
  • July 5 to 11: Donors will be entered to win tickets to see Jimmy Buffett at Riverbend in Cincinnati on July 21. 
  • July 12 to 18: Donors will be entered to win a four-pack of box set tickets plus all-you-can-eat buffet at the Cincinnati Reds vs. Washington Nationals game on Saturday, July 26.
Participants must be at least 18 to win the Las Vegas trip. Blood donors must be 17 years old (16 with parental consent), weigh at least 110 pounds, be in generally good health, present a photo I.D. and meet additional requirements.
