About Big Blue Slam

Big Blue Slam is a friendly competition between the blood donors of Kentucky Blood Center and LifeSouth Blood Center in Gainesville, Fla. It’s a fun tradition, but most importantly, Slam donations help ensure enough blood is on the shelves for the thousands of Kentucky and Florida patients who will require transfusions during the winter months. Kentucky won last year and took a slight edge in the series, 6 to 5.
