Bravo for Blood Donors!
07/23/2019 03:34 PM

All presenting donors at Memorial Blood Centers from August 1-31 will be automatically entered for a chance to win dinner and theater tickets. Though the demand for blood is constant, the supply is not – and summer is an especially difficult time to maintain a steady blood supply, with schools on break, families on vacation, and donors missing their regular appointments. New and repeat donors are urgently needed to make a donation and help save a life.

Donors during August will be automatically entered for a chance to win theater tickets at their choice of the below organizations, as well as a $50 VISA gift card. For more information, visit MBC.ORG/BRAVO:
• Hennepin Theatre Trust (Orpheum, State, and Pantages theaters)
• Duluth Playhouse (Main Stage, Family, Underground, and NorShor theaters)

Additionally, you can support your local police and fire departments this August by donating blood at a Battle of the Badges blood drive. The Battle of the Badges competition aims to raise awareness of the importance of blood donation through a friendly life-saving competition between teams of first responders. To show support for your local heroes and help them win the competition, simply donate blood at your participating police or fire department’s blood drive. (Note: An asterisk* in the chart below indicates the drive is a Battle of the Badges blood drive.) Learn more at MBC.ORG/BADGES.

While walk-in donors are always welcome, we encourage donors to make appointments in advance. Visit MBC.ORG or call 1-888-GIVE-BLD (1-888-448-3253) to make an appointment today at your local donor center or any of the upcoming blood drives below.
