Various law enforcement are coming in hopes to claim their victory tomorrow. Some include Eureka Police Department, the Sheriff’s Department, Blue Lake Police , and local detectives.

At this time, the blood bank is still in need of o negative and o positive blood. The grand winner will be announced this Friday and can claim their prize, which is a trophy.

The blood bank is grateful for the event and personally thanks local law enforcement for their efforts to help their blood supply.
