With the Labor Day holiday weekend approaching you can be a hero and share your power as a blood donor to save lives. Join us for a special Pre-Labor Day blood drive to help keep our blood supply strong.

Blood transfusions are crucial to the health and well-being of our community and that's why One Blood, and WEAR ABC 3 are partnering to ensure that blood is available for patients in our hospitals.

The WEAR Be A Hero Blood Drive is this Friday, August 22 from 7am to 6pm at the WEAR ABC 3 studios located at 4990 Mobile Highway in Pensacola, FL. Additional blood drives will also be happening from 8am to 5pm at the following One Blood Donor Pensacola Centers:

Generally healthy people age 16 or older who weigh at least 110 pounds can donate blood. Blood donors will receive a wellness check including blood pressure, temperature, iron count, a cholesterol screening and a limited edition Hero t-shirt. To learn more about the importance of blood donation and how donors can target the power of their blood type visit oneblood.org or call 850-473-3853 for information.

Every two seconds someone needs blood. Blood that is donated today will likely be transfused within two to three days. The turn-around is that fast, the need is constant.  Please join us and give blood.


WEAR ABC Channel 3 - NAS PENSACOLA 100 YEAR REUNION WEEKEND

NAS PENSACOLA 100 YEAR REUNION WEEKEND

In recognition of the centennial anniversary of the nation's oldest naval air station, Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola, the Pensacola Chamber Foundation and several other regional partners will be hosting the NAS Pensacola 100-Year Reunion Weekend to honor the significant history and impact the base has brought to Northwest Florida.

Known as "The Cradle of Naval Aviation," NAS Pensacola is one of the largest training operations in the Navy and graduates nearly 60,000 students from its training programs each year. With an approximate $60 million economic impact on the region annually, the military base employs more than 23,000 personnel throughout Greater Pensacola and trains individuals from every branch of the military, including the Coast Guard, Marine Corps and other defense-related agencies throughout the nation. Along with NAS Pensacola, the U.S. Department of Defense is the largest economic engine in the Greater Pensacola Region, contributing nearly $6.7 billion to the economy annually.

This celebration not only recognizes the important economic role that NAS Pensacola has played within Northwest Florida, but also the countless number of men and women who have volunteered to serve our nation and protect the freedom that many have sacrificed for, said Pensacola Chamber Foundation Executive Director Jerry Maygarden.

The three-day reunion will kick off on Thursday, Aug. 21, at 12:30 pm with a golf tournament at Marcus Pointe Golf Club. Active and retired military members will be paired with local community leaders for a festive event, which will include lunch, social activities and cash prizes.

On Friday, Aug. 22, Seville Quarter will host the NAS Pensacola 100-Year Reunion celebration from 6 to 10 pm, featuring nine decorated rooms, each showcasing a theme of NAS Pensacola's history. During the event, members from all branches of the Military will have the opportunity to share their stories and contributions from their time at NAS Pensacola, providing a first-hand historical look at the bases history.

The celebration will conclude with a baseball game at 6:30 pm on Saturday, Aug. 23, at the Pensacola Bayfront Stadium, featuring the Pensacola Blue Wahoos playing rivals Montgomery Biscuits.
