Rotary is Out for Blood!

Seattle 4 is in competition with district clubs to see which club(s) can save the most lives. Help Seattle 4 save lives.  Paul Harris Fellowship points will be awarded to Seattle #4 blood-drive participants. Anyone who makes a blood donation before March 17th will also automatically be entered into a drawing for one of 9 new cars through Bloodworks Northwest's giveaway. 
For one reason or another, only 40% of the general population is eligible to give blood. This is why we particularly celebrate those Seattle 4 members who have done so.
Rotary is sponsoring a drive at the Seattle Aquarium on Tuesday and Wednesday, February 16th and 17th.  
To make your appointment:
Call 1-800-398-7888 or
