Family and friends of Wendi Winters continue her giving and mission work by helping patients in need with the annual Wendi Winters Memorial Blood Drive. It’s happening Saturday, September 7th 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Annapolis. Wendi gave blood every chance she had, donating over 9 gallons of blood in her lifetime. The American Red Cross honored Wendi with a lifetime achievement award for her commitment to saving lives.

“This drive is being hosted because she regularly gave blood and organized blood drives,” said Phoenix Geimer, Winter’s son. “It’s what she would have wanted.” According the American Red Cross, one blood donation can save up to three lives.
