Rady hospital auxiliary hosts annual blood drive

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Unit of Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary sponsored its annual blood drive and Celebration of Health Day on May 4 at the Rancho Santa Fe Community Center.
Blood donors were able to meet with members of the Cenergy Medical Group, a conventional and alternative based healthcare group, to learn more about its approach to comprehensive and holistic wellness.
Throughout the afternoon, donors received complimentary culinary treats provided by Delicias, and freshly brewed coffee and homemade pastries from Cafe Positano. Donors also received organic produce provided by the Rancho Santa Fe Farmer’s Market.
The annual donation of a pint of blood provides supplemental coverage for the immediate family of the donor for the processing costs of basic blood components. Donors also had the opportunity to sign up on the national bone marrow registry.
