Posted By: The Ski Channel on October 16, 2012 2:12 pm

“Transylvania Tea Party” takes place on Wednesday, October 31, 2012!

Employees of Deer Valley Resort will host the “Transylvania Tea Party” blood drive from 10am to 3pm on Halloween (Wednesday, October 31, 2012). The Transylvania Tea Party blood drive, now an ongoing tradition for Deer Valley employees, began nine years ago by Deer Valley employees who wished to help local health care facilities augment their blood supplies. Members of the public care are also urged to donate blood at Deer Valley on Halloween.

Resort director of Human Resources Kim Mayhew said, ” This event has become a Halloween tradition at Deer Valley. Many employees find it fun to get dressed up and get together to support a worthy cause.”

Deer Valley’s Transylvania Tea Party blood drive will take place on the second level of the Snow Park Lodge in the Clock Room. The current Deer Valley employee base is being encouraged to participate in full force, and the blood drive is open to any community members who also wish to donate blood. Walk-ins ARE accepted, but Deer Valley staff does encourage donors to make an appointment by calling 435-645-6654. Light refreshments will be provided.

Donors must come to the blood drive with a photo ID, be 18 or older (or at least 16 years old with a parental permission slip), weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good health. To determine if you are eligible to give blood, please consult the ARUP Blood Services website at ARUP Blood Services, a division of ARUP Laboratories which is an enterprise of the University of Utah and the Department of Pathology, will be conducting the drive and is proud to be the sole blood provider to University of Utah Hospital, Huntsman Cancer Hospital, Primary Children’s Medical Center and Shriners Hospital for Children.
