Joyce Adair of Moab has won two free round-trip tickets from Moab to Denver, Colo. for being a blood donor during an American Red Cross blood drive. The tickets were awarded as part of a 2010 series of drawings sponsored by the American Red Cross and Great Lakes Airlines.

Between January and June 2010 every donor at American Red Cross blood drives in Moab was eligible to enter a drawing to win the Great Lakes Airlines tickets, according to a news release from the American Red Cross. 

“We are grateful to Great Lakes for providing this opportunity for our donors,” said Katie Stiel, donor recruitment representative for the American Red Cross in Utah. “It is difficult to collect blood, especially in the summer, so this promotion helps us attract potential donors.”

Stiel said the promotion will again be offered at all American Red Cross blood drives from July through December.
