Auburn Hills, MI (PRWEB) May 01, 2014
As the American Red Cross likes to say about giving blood, ‘the need is constant, and the gratification is instant;' that's why the Crowne Plaza Auburn Hills hotel partnered with the American Red Cross to help save lives by hosting a blood drive on Monday, April 28th.
The demand for blood donations in the Auburn Hills, Michigan area is very constant and donations are needed in order to offset this shortage. Over five million patients all over the country will at some point need blood this year. And each weekday, the Southeastern Michigan Blood Services Region needs to have at least 900 blood donors to help meet the need of patients in the hospitals they serve.
I am excited to have the opportunity to help save peoples' lives with this blood drive, said Christine Ruedisueli, Director of Catering at the Crowne Plaza Auburn Hills, and the event coordinator for their blood drive. After learning that just one pint of blood can save three lives, I knew that this event and partnership with the American Red Cross could make a huge difference in our community.
To encourage blood donations, the Crowne Plaza Auburn Hills gave donors the opportunity to win some great prizes. Every donor was entered into a drawing for a $150.00 Kroger Gift Card and a one night stay at the Crowne Plaza Auburn Hills. In addition, all donors also received a 25% off food voucher at O'Malley's Tavern Auburn Hills.
The Crowne Plaza was proud to announce that Troy, Michigan native, Cindy Kanczuzewski, was the winner of the free one-night stay at the hotel! Cindy is a passionate and avid blood donor! In fact, her donation on April 28th completed her 17th gallon of donated blood over her lifetime.

Re: Carolyn's Birthday Bash
Dear Ms. Lusk:
We just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how pleased we were with the way the Crowne Plaza handled our party. Everything went wonderfully and according to plan. The staff was great. We especially enjoyed Ally, the bartender. She was lots of fun and made sure our guests were well looked after. Many of our guests commented on how much they liked the food and the venue. And those of us that spent the night as well were treated to very nice rooms.
As for Carolyn and I, we really enjoyed working with you to put the party together. Your suggestions were always right on the mark and you made life easy for us by handling all the details. We were especially impressed by how quickly you responded to each of our questions and special requests.
Thanks for everything.
