Marian High School graduate and Indiana Individual State Golf Champion Adam Sumrall will donate blood for the first time on Saturday. Sumrall is helping South Bend Medical Foundation kick-off our summer promotion by urging the community to donate and be entered for a chance to shoot a hole-in-one.

“Imagine this, fast forward through time to August 3rd, you’ve just hit the tee shot of your life on the 9th hole at Morris Park Country Club. You’ve executed the perfect shot, the ball is in the air, it takes a small bounce and rolls into the cup. You’ve just hit a hole-in-one and become $50,000 richer,” said Adam.

Blood donors become eligible for the contest when they donate at South Bend Medical Foundation before August 1st and are one of the 50 donors chosen to take a shot for $50,000.

“This is a great opportunity for someone to donate blood and actually win $50,000. Summer is a difficult time for blood donations as we see an increase in need for units of blood and a decrease in donors due to vacations and other commitments,” said Kay Clark-Cox, Manager of Blood Donor Recruitment for South Bend Medical Foundation Blood Donor Services

Not a golfer? Don’t worry, donate blood and choose who you would like to have take the shot for you.

“We don’t want to discourage those who are not confident in their golf game from donating blood during this great promotion. Therefore, we encourage people to donate and choose someone that they would like to shoot for the $50,000. There will be other great prizes as well,” said Clark-Cox.
