Pan Pa­cific chair­man Chao Yu Pei yes­ter­day said the or­ga­niz­ers aimed to sur­pass last year’s blood col­lec­tion of 1,466 pints of blood dur­ing its blood do­na­tion cam­paign.

He also said all blood donors were en­ti­tled to a lucky draw ticket where they could stand a chance to win a grand prize of an iPhone XR 64GB.

Other lucky draw prizes were an iPad WiFi 32GB, three days and two nights stay at the Le Meri­dien, two days and one night stay at Sabah Tea Re­sort or Gaya Cen­tre Ho­tel, a pair of sun­glasses, Manukan Is­land Day Trip, Mas­sage and Spa at In­dah and Beauty Well­ness or Kama’a Re­ju­ve­na­tion and Well­be­ing Spa and car wash vouch­ers from DY Car Wash.

The event kick-started as early as 8.30pm and ended at 10pm and lucky draw re­sults were an­nounced at the end of the event.

Mean­while, among the blood donors were two col­leagues, Nur Hafizah Sai­ful and Nuriyah Hamizah Jaludin, who were em­ploy­ees at Se­cret Recipes Restau­rant at the mall.

They sac­ri­ficed their break time to con­trib­ute to so­ci­ety through do­nat­ing their blood to save peo­ple’s lives.

Nur Hafizah, 23, was a first timer at do­nat­ing blood and she found it was not fright­en­ing at all.

Be­sides, she now knows that she be­longs to the ‘O’ blood group and wants to do­nate again if she has the op­por­tu­nity to do so.

Nuriyah, 24, on the other hand, had her sec­ond ex­pe­ri­ence in do­nat­ing her blood.

She called for the pub­lic to do­nate blood for the sake of peo­ple in need.

There were 50 beds pro­vided for blood donors and as of 7.47pm yes­ter­day, 1,275 pints of blood were col­lected.
