All presenting donors who participate in any UBS blood drive between June 1st and September 10th will have their name entered in a drawing to win this car, donated by Northern Nevada Toyotadealers in Reno, Fallon, and Carson City.

Editor’s note: This is the final article in a series about the California Department of Fish and Game proposal to eliminate state game refuges.  Previous stories in this series ran on 5/4/2011 and 5/18/11.
