Official Press Release........

Alex O’Loughlin / Moonlight Blood Drive

Fans of the recently cancelled CBS vampire detective television series Moonlight have organized the Alex O’Loughlin / Moonlight Blood Drive to be held in San Diego, California on Friday and Saturday, 7/24-7/25/08. It will be hosted by Trevor Munson, co-creator of the series.

The freshman series amassed a huge fan base and a cult-like following, as evidenced by winning the “Favorite New TV Drama” on The Peoples Choice Awards.

The Alex O’Loughlin / Moonlight Blood Drive will be held at the W Hotel San Diego, 421 West B Street from 11:00 AM-4:30 PM Friday and Saturday. Trevor Munson will be available both days during these hours to sign autographs and chat about Moonlight and upcoming projects.

Trevor Munson is very proud to be hosting the blood drive. In his words: “When I was writing the novel that Moonlight was based on, I hoped to connect with those who read it one day in the way one does when creating a work of fiction. I hoped it would entertain and perhaps even inspire people in positive ways in their own lives. Eventually that novel evolved into a television show, and it was wonderful to see that eight million people a week tuned in because they liked the premise, enjoyed the stories, and cared about the characters. But nothing could have prepared me for the way that Moonlight fans took their love for the show and carried it out into the world in real and meaningful ways. Because of them, people across America and the globe, have linked themselves to blood centers and orchestrated blood donation efforts on behalf of the show they came to love … It is humbling and wonderful to have been a part of creating something that has served as a catalyst for so much good. I thank you all, and would like to take this opportunity to invite others (fans of the show or not) to come and join us in the spirit of the goodwill and giving at these events.”

Alex O’Loughlin is a dedicated supporter of the blood drive efforts. To support Alex and Moonlight, make an appointment at www.givelife.org and use the password Moonlight. This will take the donor straight to the events calendar where he/she can make an appointment for a time between 11:00 AM and 4:30 PM each day. Donors with an appointment will be given preference over walk-ins. Come out, save a life, and see Trevor Munson! The W Hotel San Diego is only 8 short miles from the Comic Con Convention, which is being held the same weekend.

The Alex O’Loughlin / Moonlight Blood Drive is being sponsored by www.youchoose.net, which is the place for fans of TV programs to join campaigns for their favorite shows, including “save our show” campaigns. The American Red Cross states that every two seconds someone needs blood, but only a small percentage of those who are eligible actually donate. Donating blood is a great way to make a difference in your community. Please go to www.givelife.org to find the nearest Red Cross Blood Service Region.

Fans who need information and do not have an internet connection can call 800-335-4852 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM Pacific Time daily. To respond to this press release call or e-mail Barbara Arnold at robes4you@aol.com.
