DEER VALLEY RESORT: PARK CITY, UTAH (October 12, 2015) – For 12 years running, Deer Valley Resort employees offer their blood during Halloween at the annual Transylvania Tea Party Blood Drive. Partnering with ARUP Blood Services, the employee and community Halloween-themed event, held Friday, October 30, is a long-standing tradition that benefits local community blood banks.

"There really isn't a much better way to get into the Halloween spirit than to dress up and give blood,” said Stacey Taylor, Deer Valley Resort director of Human Resources. “Our employees have a lot of fun with the theme of this event, but it also brings a great deal of satisfaction knowing the good they are doing to help our community.”

Deer Valley Resort encourages the public to join resort employees in donating blood at the Transylvania Tea Party held on the second level of Snow Park Lodge in the Clock Room from 10 am to 3 pm. Over 100 people attended last year's blood drive and donated more than 65 units of blood. The vital, always-needed donations are utilized for emergency situations and to help individuals suffering from cancer, blood disorders, sickle-cell anemia and other illnesses. Walk-ins are welcome, or appointments can be scheduled by calling Deer Valley Resort Human Resources at 435-645-6654 or online at, using the search code B068.
