Push for Holiday Blood Donors

blood services

United Blood Services has partnered with 12 News, The Arizona Republic, 17 Valley radio stations and community sponsors to ask you to give blood June 24 to July 5, as the two weeks surrounding July 4 have traditionally been the most difficult to meet patient blood needs. The need for blood donors has escalated since the beginning of the vacation season, especially for type O-negative, the universal blood type required primarily by emergency and trauma patients, and also used in life-saving transfusions in premature babies.  

Donors at six Valley donor centers will be thanked with a voucher for a free Whataburger and be entered into six daily raffles for a pair of tickets on the Grand Canyon Railway. All donors will also be automatically entered in the summer raffle to win a 2014 Passat S, donated by your Valley Volkswagen dealers.

On July 5 at Saving Arizona, Arizona’s largest blood drive, a donor will be drawn as one of the 10 finalists for the Volkswagen Passat S. For an appointment and learn dates, times and donation locations, call 1-877-UBS-HERO (1-877-827-4376) or visit www.BloodHero.com.

Rosewood Village at The Foothills - Photo 1

As Rosewood Homes unveiled Rosewood Village in the Ahwatukee Foothills, 800 prospective buyers and neighbors toured the luxury single-family residences in the new gated community.

These well-appointed, energy efficient residences range in size from approximately 1,700 to 2,400 square feet with two bedrooms plus loft to four bedrooms; 2 ½ to three baths; and two-car garages with prices from the low $280’s to the $300’s. The new neighborhood is also notable for its use of oak “street trees” and a choice of Spanish Colonial, Italian and European Country styles. Rosewood is also nearing completion of a private recreation area for the exclusive use of Rosewood Village residents and their guests. This new facility features a resort-style swimming pool, covered pool-side cabanas, barbecue grill, fire pit as well as an event lawn for family activities and neighborhood gatherings.

“Our new neighborhood has been so well received that we’ve already sold the first 10 homes,” says David Kitnick, president and founder of Rosewood Homes. “It’s exciting to see the enthusiasm that people have for our new neighborhood where well-detailed homes are priced from the low $280’s to $300’s in such a fabulous location with such wonderful neighborhood amenities.” www.rosewoodhomes.com.
