Help your community and earn a chance to savor some of the country's best barbecue? Sounds like a winning deal.

Franklin Barbecue has teamed with We Are Blood, formerly known as the Blood Center of Texas, to help inspire Austinites to donate blood during January's National Blood Donor Month.

If you visit one of the three area donation centers and donate between now and January 15, you will be entered to win a free private dinner at Franklin Barbecue on February 9. Twenty winners will be chosen, and each winner will get to bring one guest.
