Thank you to our friends at Chateau Lill and Bloodworks Northwest for encouraging everyone to make a difference!

Chateau Lill is Crushing the blood shortage in October!

To sign up, call 800-398-7888.

Chateau Lill and Bloodworks Northwest are partnering to support hospitals throughout the Pacific Northwest– providing an opportunity for our local community to accessibly donate blood during the COVID Pandemic. A blood shortage is anticipated as blood drives won’t be taking place at local high school and college locations. With no students on campus, these annual blood drives aren’t being held. School-based blood drives account for 25% of the blood collected at Bloodworks Northwest. Chateau Lill has opened its doors to host as the second Pop-Up Donor Center in Woodinville Wine Country. During October 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 22 the Grand Room will be transformed from beautiful wedding venue into a Pop-Up Blood Donation Center, allowing local residents and wine enthusiasts to come out and save a life as a blood donor. Sign up Today to donate at Chateau Lill. For more information, call 800-398-7888.
