The Castle Marching Knights are hosting a blood drive on Saturday with the hopes of performing during half time of an Indianapolis Colts game!

The Indiana Blood Bank is hosting its Battle of the Bands, in which the band that has the largest number of donors in a single day will get an expense-paid trip to Indianapolis to perform during the half time at an Indianapolis Colts preseason football game.

The blood drive will be held at the north side of Castle High School this Saturday July 9th from 9:00 a.m.  - 12:30 p.m.  The donation process takes less than an hour. It is recommended that donors have a light snack before donating. Most people are eligible to donate.

Donors are encouraged to sign up ahead of time. For online sign-up information, email Greg Fleck at gfleck@wowway.com or Todd Glass at tig@wowway.com

The amount of blood products needed often increases in summer months. Get more information about the need for blood HERE
