“I’m dancing to SAVE LIVES! The Red and White Ball Dancing for a Cause competition has offered me the unique opportunity to fundraise for a new bloodmobile that will allow the organization to collect more platelets and whole blood donations that will directly impact the lives of more San Antonians.” -Jenna Saucedo-Herrera
