Bob Hope Airport to host all-day blood drive Wednesday

Organizers of an all-day blood drive at Bob Hope Airport on Wednesday hope to collect 100 pints from donors in honor of the city's yearlong centennial celebration.

The annual blood drive is organized each year in conjunction with some of the biggest companies in the vicinity of the airport, including the Burbank Airport Marriott, Yahoo! and media studios to benefit Providence hospitals in Burbank and other San Fernando Valley locations.

Donors will be entered to win round trip airfare from JetBlue, hotel stays through Marriott and other prizes.

Employees from participating businesses will be shuttled between the Marriott campus on Hollywood Way and the airport campus, with the blood drive taking place in the Terminal A Skyroom overlooking the airfield.
