RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe unit of Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary is sponsoring a blood and bone marrow drive from noon to 5 p.m. March 31 at the Rancho Santa Fe Community Center parking lot, 5970 La Sendita.
Childcare will be available and blood donors will receive a complimentary dermatologic skin cancer screening by a board-certified Scripps Clinic dermatologist. In addition, several local restaurants will provide culinary treats throughout the afternoon.
The annual donation of a pint of blood can provide supplemental coverage for the immediate family of the donor for the processing costs of basic blood components. Donors will also have the opportunity to sign up for the national bone marrow registry.
