BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

She gave the gift of life, and now one woman is being rewarded for her generosity. Patsy Trochesset is the first winner of a pair of tickets to Friday's Sugar Bowl in New Orleans.

Every day, one person who donates at WLOX's blood drive will be randomly chosen to win tickets to the big game.

Patsy said she and her husband are thrilled to win the tickets, but that's not the reason she decided to donate blood.

"It really gives me a good feeling that I'm helping people when I donate blood," said Trochesset. "I feel like I'm helping at least three people every time there's a blood drive to donate blood."

There is still another chance to donate blood and get entered in the drawing to win Sugar Bowl tickets. The final day of the blood drive is Thursday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Edgewater Mall in Biloxi.
