Dover International Speedway plans to once again pay tribute to the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks with its annual 9/11 Memorial Blood Drive on Thursday, Sept. 11 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Dover Downs Hotel & Casino.
This marks the ninth year the Monster Mile, Dover Downs Hotel & Casino and the Blood Bank of Delmarva have partnered for this honorable cause, dating back to 2006. As a sign of appreciation toward all who donate this year, each donor will receive a pair of tickets to the Saturday, Sept. 27, 2014 NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Dover International Speedway.
“The 9/11 Blood Drive is a tradition we’ve established that our team is very proud of,” said Denis McGlynn, president and CEO of Dover Motorsports, Inc. “We’re honored to be able to pay tribute to the many who lost their lives on that fateful day in 2001, while also contributing to a cause that helps so many today.”
The 9/11 Memorial Blood Drive is open to the public and appointments should be scheduled by calling 1-888-8-BLOOD or visiting www.DelmarvaBlood.org. Please be sure to reference the Dover International Speedway event when making your appointment. Although advance appointments are strongly encouraged, walk-in donors will be welcomed and taken as time permits.
