I try not to do too many regional posts, but I couldn't pass this one up. If you donate blood tomorrow (07/01) at a participating Sweet Bay Supermarket (all of mine are participating! Their website is having issues with listing locations, so go to the press page and look at the latest press release for locations) or at Channel 10 News Studio (11450 Gandy Blvd in St. Petersburg, FL) then you will receive a tropical T-shirt AND a voucher for a FREE ticket to see the Tampa Bay Rays on either Wed August 3rd (vs. Toronto), Wed August 24th (vs. Detroit) or Tues September 6th (vs. Texas). You will also be entered to win a VIP Experience which includes 2 pre-game batting practice tickets (on field access!) and 2 tickets to a Rays suite (food and beverages included) for the September 10th Rays vs. Red Sox game!
If you can't make it out tomorrow, then you will have more opportunities for the same deal on July 30th at select Chick-Fil-A's and August 7-14 at the Florida Blood Services donation centers (just keep in mind if you go to the center, you will miss the 8/03 game, so your options will be more limited). I am so excited about this! I will be giving blood tomorrow. You must be at least 16 years old and healthy to participate. Go here for full details and to schedule your appointment if you are waiting until August 7-14th to donate at one of the donation centers.
If you don't live near Tampa, you should still check out your local Blood donation center to see what kind of promotions they are having. FBS (Florida Blood Services) is always giving out event tickets, movie tickets and even Walmart and Home Depot gift certificates. Plus, you may save someone's life! How cool is that?
