Donors Get Free Pistons Tickets At 11th Annual Palace Blood Drive

AUBURN HILLS (WWJ) – Palace Sports & Entertainment and the American Red Cross of Southeastern Michigan are joining forces once again for the 11th annual Palace Blood Drive on Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2012, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at The Palace of Auburn Hills.

Everyone who donates blood at this year’s Palace Blood Drive will receive special thank you gifts including: Detroit Pistons memorabilia, Pistons tickets to a pre-season game and the first game of the regular season, and a $10 gift card. All gifts are available while supplies last. In addition, everyone who comes to donate will be entered to win a $500 gas card or an iPad.

This community drive was organized in 2002 as a way for individuals to commemorate the anniversary of the September 11, 2001, attacks and give the community an opportunity to help save lives by building the blood supply in Southeastern Michigan.

Advance appointments are encouraged. Donors with appointments will be given first priority, and the wait time for those who do not have appointments could be quite lengthy. To make your appointment for the Palace Blood Drive, call 1-800-RED CROSS or visit www.redcrossblood.org and use sponsor code “palace.”

Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental permission in some states), meet weight and height requirements (110 pounds or more, depending on their height) and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. Bring your Red Cross blood donor card or other form of positive ID when you come to donate.
