Oklahoma Blood Institute, RedHawks reward donors
Fewer people donate blood on summertime Mondays and Tuesdays. So, Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) has partnered with the Oklahoma City RedHawks to provide special rewards for those who do.
“Early bird” blood donors at all OBI donor centers will get a voucher for two general admission tickets* to a select RedHawks baseball game.
Tickets to July 26 or Aug. 16 games can be claimed at the Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark during regular box office hours with a photo ID in advance of the select game start time. Vouchers for tickets are have no cash value and available on a first come, first served basis.
The offer is available through Aug. 14, only at Oklahoma Blood Institute donor centers.
“This is a great program to encourage Oklahomans to donate blood throughout the summer,” said RedHawks President/General Manager Michael Byrnes. “The RedHawks are pleased to partner with OBI to make sure that all the medical facilities across the state can maintain the necessary blood supply to meet their patient’s needs.”
To be considered an “early bird,” donors must donate on Mondays or Tuesdays only. Donors can donate at any donor center throughout Oklahoma, and giving blood typically takes only one hour. Anyone who is healthy and 16 years of age can donate and donations can be made every 56 days.
