The Cats are back in the Final Four, and
Kentuckians everywhere are showing their Big Blue support. At Kentucky
Blood Center (KBC) Thursday through Saturday, donors can prove they
bleed blue and receive a blue Kentucky Madness Dallas 2014 T-shirt,
perfect to wear for the big game on Saturday.
"It's a great time to be a Kentucky fan, and it's always a good time
for saving a life," said Bill Reed, KBC President and CEO.
