Posted on 6/27/2016

Alpha Media Salina, Kan. held a “Pump up the Volume” blood drive contest June 27-29, between Salina’s nine radio stations. Listeners can sign up to donate to the American Red Cross on the stations’ entry form at the donor site. The station that signs up the most donors receives a plaque. The 336 units of blood collected will help 1008 patients.

Alpha Media Salina also hosted a “Mulligan Stew Golf Tournament” on May 27. In order to get a mulligan, golfers must bring soup for the Salina Emergency Food Bank and Rescue Mission, which served 41,000 meals last year. About 20 - 25 teams participate and bring enough soup to fill a pickup truck.
