May is Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month. Celebrate this community and the May is Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month. Join us as we celebrate the vibrant AAPI community and its unique businesses that bring strong cultural and delicious culinary diversity to our neighborhoods.
As part of our ongoing Savor Life, Save a Life campaign to join with our region’s culinary community and recruit ten thousand new blood donors by June 30th, when you donate blood in the month of May, you can enter to win one of these one of a kind rewards!
1. A $100 gift card to all of these Asian-owned businesses throughout the PNW including:
2. An afternoon of creative culinary collaboration with Sweet Alchemy Ice Creamery owner Lois Ko and use unique local ingredients to create 12 – 14 pints of your own custom ice cream flavor! Sweet Alchemy Ice Creamery is a Seattle-based AAPI- and female-owned business dedicated to producing small batch, organic ice cream made from scratch with ingredients sourced locally.
3. And if doughnuts are more your fancy, you could win the opportunity to dive into a doughnut class at Raised Doughnuts with owner Mi Kim. From glazed to sparkled to the classic apple fritter, and mochi sugar to the maple bar and the churro crueler, Raised Doughnuts are all made from scratch, with light and chewy textures that never sacrifice quality and consistency.
At the end of May we’ll pick three winners – one for the 14 nights dining out, one for Sweet Alchemy Ice Creamery, and one for Raised Doughnuts! Winners will carry their ice cream and doughnuts home in an Intentionalist ‘Spend Like It Matters’ mini tote bag.
For these promotions, Bloodworks Northwest and the SAVOR LIFE campaign is proud to partner with Intentionalist, where owner Laura Clise encourages intentional spending that supports small businesses and diverse local communities through everyday decisions about where we eat, drink, and shop. Intentionalist makes it easy to find local restaurants, bars, gyms, shops, and more owned by women, people of color, veterans, members of the LGBTQ community, families, and disabled people.
