Thanks For The Success!

Thanks For The Success!

Dear Editor;

Thank you for helping to make the Inaugural Graybeards Blood Drive on September 15 such a success.

As you may have read in the local papers, we had 255 potential donors register and collected 229 pints of blood. We simply could not have done it without you. Here is a list of the local businesses and associations that helped make this drive so successful...

Belle Harbor Property Owners Association, Belle Harbor Yacht Club, Ben's Deli, Community Board 14, Harbor Light Pub, Knights of Columbus, New York Blood Center, Point Breeze Association, Rockaway Volleyball League, Rockaway Action Committee, Rockaway Beach Civic Association, Rockaway Chamber of Commerce, RDRC, Rockaway Park Association, Rockaway Park Homeowners & Residents, Rockaway Rotary Club, St. Francis de Sales School, St. Francis Parish Council Blood Drive, St. Thomas Moore, The Forum Courier, The Pointer, The Tablet, The Wave and The Walter Blum Memorial Blood Drive. There were also dozens of business owners who agreed to display posters in their store window prior to the drive.

The Graybeards plan to make the Second Annual Blood Drive even bigger and better. We have already pledged to collect 350 pints of blood and have arranged with Long Island Blood Services for more personnel and longer hours. The date will be Sunday, September 14, 2003 at St. Francis de Sales gym.

We look forward to your continued support.
