Skiing promotion benefits blood donors

People who donate blood to the St. Mary’s Regional Blood Center in Grand Junction during February will receive buy-one, get-one-free lift tickets to Powderhorn Mountain Resort.

Donors also will be entered into a drawing to win a three-day learn to ski or snowboard package donated by Powderhorn Mountain Resort.

Located at 750 Wellington Ave., the blood center is open from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. weekdays and 7 a.m. and noon  Saturdays. The locations and times of operation for the mobile blood donation bus are posted on the St. Mary’s Web site at
