Blood Drive Success

By Joe Nelson
   Saturday was the 5th annual "Bandit's Blood Drive" at San Diego Harley Davidson and it went off without a hitch.
Mark Shaffer, Chopper, Actor Mickey Jones, Bodie, Kristi Jagger & Mark Jagger

   Mark Shaffer and Chopper the biker dog hosted the event and had many special guests along the way, including Magic 92.5's Jagger & Kristi (with their dog Bodie), actor, musician, author Mickey Jones, music by the Jesse Cox Syn-Drum Band,  and a biker who was in an hit by a drunk driver last year and was literally decapitated, but the spine was kept intact. He needed blood and the San Diego Blood Bank was right there to provide for him. He was paralyzed for a while, but was able to get on stage and talk about the importance of giving blood. It was an amazing story. (Pictured Below)
   In the end, 120 pints of blood were raised and everyone involved seemed to have a fun afternoon, and all for a great cause.
   Mickey Jones said "Mark has helped me at so many of my events, the least I could do is come down and help with his great event" Mickey also tells SanDiegoRadio "By giving blood today, this probably saved three lives today, not a bad day"
Great job to Mark, and all of his volunteers. Thank you!
