Blood Centers of the Pacific (BCP), a local non-profit blood provider, is
proud to partner with 5 Star Car Wash in Vacaville for another lifesaving event.
Bill Proestler, owner of 5 Star Car Wash and Detail Center, is passionate about giving blood.
His daughter has been a recipient, “Kortney at age 18 was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin
Lymphoma. She was treated aggressively at UC Davis in Sacramento for over a year. Her
treatment required a bone marrow transplant, radiation and chemotherapy. The whole
process required over 80 units of blood. It’s important for us to hold these events at our
business to help others survive.
BCP has been a community blood provider since 1941and serves patients in more than 45
hospitals in the Bay Area. We rely 100 percent on volunteer donors who save countless lives
each year. BCP needs to see 500 donors a day to meet the needs of local hospitals and
“Blood is the most precious gift that anyone can give to another person – the gift of life.”
states Steve Pignataro, BCP Donor Representative. “We are grateful for 5 Star Car Wash’s
continued support and dedication. Through our partnership, 374 lifesaving units of blood
have been donated.” Please join us at the September blood drive.
