Please mark your calendar and make on appointment to give blood at Sheriff’s headquarters on September 11, 2018, the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. What a great way to give back and honor of all those who perished and first responders who risked and lost their lives to save others. The blood drive will be held from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at 4434 Calle Real in Santa Barbara. 

To make an appointment please visit www.blood4life.org and use sponsor code 1493 or click on the link. You can also make an appointment by calling 805-543-4290 

Donors will also be entered into a drawing for a dream vacation to Hawaii.

It's possible the Hawaiian vacation was donated. Vacations get donated to non-profits who have fundraisers, usually in the silent auction. Just what is such a big deal, negative reaction, about giving a vacation for a blood drive, an extremely worthy cause.

Thank you for clarifying that it is not the sheriff's office doing this. United Blood Systems is a 'non-profit' that apparently collects blood from paid donors and others and processes it for medical uses. Not clear what the company is about from short research. Hope they are legit and this is a good cause. What happened to obvious non-profits like the Red Cross?

If UBS is paying for the Hawai'in vacation this would seem a cost. Seems a bit smarmy to me. Sort of like the mailer I get from the local hearing aid vendor offering me a free dinner at the local restaurant. No obligation.
