DURHAM, N.H. -- Alumni from UNH and Dartmouth College are invited to take part in a friendly competition to support the Red Cross as it strives to save lives.
 
On Saturday, Dec. 18, alumni from both schools will try to donate more blood than alumni from the other school. The donation location will be the New Hampshire Red Cross Blood Center, 425 Reservoir Ave., Manchester.  The school that donates the most blood will be announced at the UNH vs. Dartmouth men’s hockey pre-game reception on Wednesday, Jan. 12, at the Center of New Hampshire Holiday Inn, Manchester.
 
The winning school will be based on the percentage of alumni population from the Manchester area who give blood on Dec. 18 at the Manchester Red Cross office.
 
As an added incentive, the first 25 blood donors will receive a pair of tickets to the pre-game reception and UNH vs. Dartmouth men’s hockey game. The reception will be held from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the Center of New Hampshire Holiday Inn, 700 Elm St. Manchester, and the game will begin at 7 p.m. at the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester.
