The American Red Cross is appealing to the public as we begin fall to give the gift of life. The entire process of giving blood takes about an hour, including paperwork, testing, donation time, and that popular post donation hospitality. There is one blood drive being held today that has a unique setting - at a haunted house.
The Apocolypse Haunted House is located about a half mile north of Alton High School on the curve at Roach Road. The Alton Undead is hosting its 3rd annual "Bad People Do Good Things" blood drive today from 3-8pm.
That's Alton Undead's Travis Ware. He says anyone who donates blood will receive a discounted ticket to the haunted house when it opens tonight at 8:00.
