December 10, 2021 at 6:40 PM–Richard Templin Blood Drive to be held on Saturday, December 11, 2021

Hello All,

I would like to let you know that Richard Templin of Southwestern Yacht Club is in need of help by way of people donating blood on his behalf  and I would like to ask that you donate blood at the San Diego Blood Bank’s blood drive event at Southwestern Yacht Club to benefit Richard Templin.

I apologize to be giving you such short notice, but the blood drive event is being held tomorrow, Saturday, December 11, 2021 at Southwestern Yacht Club located at 2702 Qualtrough Street, San Diego, CA 92106.  The hours are from 10:00 AM until 3:30 PM.

Appointments are “strongly encouraged” and can be made at (619) 400-8251.  In the past, Richard Templin’s code to make sure the blood donated is donated on his behalf has been RT 19.  In any event, please let them know you are specifically donating blood on behalf of Richard Templin.  They advise to arrive hydrated and you need to have a photo ID.    While supplies last, each donor will be given a Comic-Con t-shirt.  Please look at the information flyer below for more details.

Richard is in need of blood so he can have regular transfusions to be able to stay alive.  Having blood for the transfusions is literally a life or death ongoing need for Richard who suffers from a bone marrow based blood condition.  The blood supply is low and having blood available is essential for Richard’s survival and the survival of many others.

I want to thank you very much for doing what you can in donating blood to help Richard Templin and others.  Richard is an outstanding individual, a fine family man, a dedicated angler and a dear friend. The world is a better place with Richard Templin being alive and well and I thank you for doing what you can to help.
