Be a #1 Fan to Patients in Need

May 31, 2016

(St. Paul, MN) – Memorial Blood Centers is teaming up with the Minnesota Twins to give blood donors a chance to win baseball tickets. In June, volunteers who step up to the plate to help save lives through blood donation are automatically entered to win:
• 1 of 2 Grand Slam Prizes including 4 premium tickets and a $200 Visa gift card for travel accommodations

• 1 of 10 Home Run Prizes including weekly drawings for a premium pair of tickets

Volunteers are needed to step up to give blood during the summer months, when blood donations are often low. Patients in local hospitals depend on Memorial Blood Centers to be there with the right blood type they need to survive. All types are needed—especially O negative (O-) and O positive (O+). Only volunteers can make a life-saving difference to someone in need.

To register for a blood drive, visit us online at MBC.ORG or contact the sponsoring organization directly. While walk-in donors are always welcome, we encourage appointments to be made in advance. To learn more about the June 2016 promotion visit MBC.ORG/TWINS.
