PALMDALE – The 13th annual Tyler Lundin Memorial Blood Drive will take place this Saturday at Palmdale’s Marie Kerr Park.

The blood drive is held in honor of Tyler Lundin who, in 2006 at age 20, passed away in a hit-and-run crash. Attendees may also join in a silent auction and gift basket raffles to benefit local children’s charities.
