Family holds blood drive in honor of missing Tucson woman; Charity bowling event

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- The family of a missing Tucson woman is keeping her memory alive with a blood drive.

Investigators say 66-year-old Kay Read was abducted from her home in February 2008.

Since then, her family has teamed up with the Red Cross to host several drives.  Kay's sister says giving blood was one of many ways she helped out in the community.

"She was always willing to reach out, help, donate, give to, and if I can just do this blood drive every 8 weeks, that's just nothing compared to what she gave," said Kay Read's Sister Mary Seagle.

So far from all the blood drives the red cross has collected enough blood to save 900 lives.

The next Kay Read drive will be held October 30.

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Tucsonans laced up their bowling shoes today to support a good cause.

It was all part of the Arizona Families for Children annual celebrity bowling event at Golden Pin Lanes.

The organization helps families with the adoption process and finds loving homes for kids with special needs.

Fox 11 Video Journalist Kevin Adger got in on the action.

This is the 24th year Arizona families has hosted the games.

"These are children that are waiting on foster care, who need permanent families, but who don't have anybody identified for them," said Kay Buckler from Arizona Families for Children.

The annual event is the organization's primary fundraiser.
