Selection of Sweatshirt Winners: The drawing will be conducted by the Vitalant corporate office under the supervision of three employees, whose decisions are final and binding. Winners will be selected as follows: All eligible entries, including requests for non-donor entries, received during the Giveaway Period will be combined and three (3) potential prize winners will be selected from each of the five (5) Vitalant Divisions in a random drawing on or about October 6, 2023.

Failure by the potential prize winner to respond within seventy-two (72) hours of notification and after the second of two (2) attempts will result in disqualification and an alternate potential prize winner(s) then will be selected in the same manner, from all remaining eligible entries. If Vitalant is unable to determine and verify a potential prize winner after repeated alternate drawings, Vitalant reserves the right to not award all prize(s) or all elements of the Prize. No prize in the giveaway will be given in cash or may be redeemable or convertible into cash. The Platelet Donor Sweatshirt will be shipped to the winner’s preferred physical address within 2 weeks of prize acceptance by the winner(s).
