Flight for Life had it's second annual blood drive at their Waukesha hangar today. Fairly good turnout too. Around forty donors including me.
This drive was different for two reasons; food was collected for the Waukesha Food Pantry, and a beautiful one-of-a-kind quilt was to be raffled off. The quilt features something nice from each of the fire departments in Waukesha County, and a couple of panels from Flight for Life. The thing is truly a work of art - even has a curtain rod sleeve sewn in for hanging. Anyone would be proud to own it, and I'm hoping I'm the one. As a blood donor I received one ticket.
The quilt raffle was a fundraiser to outfit pilots with night vision goggles; additional tickets could have been purchased for $5.00 each.
Also Tuesday, Flight for Life will be awarding it's16th Annual Scene Call of the Year Award to the City of Brookfield Fire Department. The ceremony will be held at 5:00 at the Brookfield Civic Plaza on Calhoun Road.
