The Oakland Zoo will be holding a blood drive on Monday March 26th from 1 until 7 in the Petersen Events Center lobby. We are trying to collect as much blood as possible because Pittsburgh is one of the few areas in the country that has to import blood. It’s good to be affiliated with such a large hospital network in the Pittsburgh area, but being Pittsburgh residents we have to do our part to help make sure our hospitals are ready to help those in need.
To help sweeten the offer of donating blood, if you register to donate you will be entered in a drawing to win 2 season tickets for next years men’s basketball games.
There will also be other great prizes and give aways.
Bendel and Benz from fox sports radio will be doing a live broadcast from the lobby of the Pete while the event is going on.
You can stop up at anytime to give blood, but if you don’t want to wait in line you can preregister for a time by emailing TheOaklandZoo@gmail.com and setting up a donation time.
