Blood Bowl Bash winners drawn, UBS makes new appeal for donations

PINE BELT - Some of the lucky individual winners in WDAM and United Blood Services' recent Blood Bowl Bash were drawn at Ashley Furniture Homestore Tuesday morning.

More than three hundred units of blood was donated in that event on July 26.

Winners of two recliners from Ashley Furniture Homestore were Sheila Moffett of Hattiesburg and Raymond Martin.

Selina Trigg's name was drawn as the winner of an Apple Watch.

The City of Laurel won the Blood Bowl competition with Hattiesburg, while Waynesboro took top honors among surrounding communities in the Pine Belt.

Also Tuesday, United Blood Services issued a new appeal for donations.

The organization said area hospitals currently have less than one day supply of blood. All types of blood are needed, but O-Negative, A-negative and B-Negative are especially needed.
