April 06, 2024 10:00AM - 3:30PM

Saturday, April 6th from 10:00 AM to 3:30 PM ABATE of Illinois - Kishwaukee Valley Chapter, INC will be hosting their 22nd Annual Memorial Blood Drive in honor of Mike "Gonzo" Guirlando in conjunction with Rock River Valley Blood Center.

While we know in the past many have simply walked-in and donated the day of the event, we CANNOT STRESS ENOUGH the importance of pre-registering as it was canceled last year due to a lack of pre-register donors.

To schedule a time to donate, please visit or call Rock River Valley Blood Center at 815-961-2324.

Every Registered Blood Donor will receive a FREE Kegel H-D Insulated Lunch Bag as well as a 1-Time Use Coupon for 10% off a future purchase on full-priced officially licensed merch and aftermarket parts & accessories.

In celebration of the wrap up of March Madness, donors at the blood drive will also be entered in a drawing for a $100 gift basket from Murphy’s Pub & Grill!

Light refreshments and snacks will also be available to all donors.

Kegel Harley-Davidson will also be hosting their annual No-Tax Day, covering your tax on officially licensed merch and aftermarket parts for 1 day only.

The Tommy Corral Memorial Foundation will also be on-site with information and taking pre-registrations for the annual Ride to Fight Suicide 2024, happening on Saturday, June 8th.

If you have any questions regarding the Blood Drive or need help getting registered, please contact Kurt Husen, ABATE of Illinois - Kishwaukee Valley Chapter, INC Vice President, at 815-289-0692 or Rachel in the Kegel H-D Marketing & Events Office at 815-332-7125 ext 216.
