Blood Donors Have A Chance To Win Tickets To ACL Music Festival

All donors who attempt to donate blood at any fixed site center or mobile blood drive August 30 – September 2 will be automatically entered for a chance to win two, three-day wristband passes to the ACL Music Festival, October 4-6. Visit www.inyourhands.org for a complete list of locations and mobile drives.

The Blood Center is the exclusive provider of blood and blood products to over 37 hospitals in the Central Texas area. Every day more than 200 blood donations are needed to help patients in our community. The need for lifesaving blood is often more acute on extended holiday weekends like Labor Day because of increased travel. If you are able, please add blood donation to your “to do” list between August 30 and September 2.

Basic requirements to donate blood include being at least 17 years old, weighing at least 115 lbs. for whole blood donation and being in generally good health. Donors need to bring a photo ID.
