You don't have to save someone from a tall building or stop a villain from taking over the world to be a hero.  Real heroes walk our streets every day.  They are blood donors! 


Be a hero and contribute to the community blood supply at the Downtown Chapel Hill Blood Drive on Monday, May 27, 2013 between 11AM and 4PM at the Franklin Hotel and give the gift of life.  


The Downtown Chapel Hill Blood Drive is hosted by Venture Crew 9 and sponsored by The Friends of the Downtown, the Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership, the Franklin Hotel, and Tyler's Restaurant; all teaming up to sponsor one of the largest blood drive events in Chapel Hill, second only to UNC's blood drive at the Smith Center.


The Franklin Hotel is located at 311 West Franklin Street. Parking is available behind the hotel and on Memorial Day parking is FREE downtown at on-street meters and most municipal parking lots! Visit for details. 


Every two seconds someone needs blood.  Unfortunately, only 3% of the population donates blood.  That's why the need is continuous, and the appeals are ongoing.  Please sign up to give today!  Go to and use sponsor code "chapelhill" to schedule your life-saving appointment.


Blood donors will enjoy food sponsored by Tyler's Restaurant, gifts and prize drawings! Plus, live entertainment.
