Extra Angel game tickets available for blood donors

August 25, 2011

Donors who give blood at one of the season’s final two UCI Health/Angels Baseball blood drives on Aug. 30 and Sept. 6 at Angel Stadium will receive vouchers for four tickets to a game in September.

Vouchers can be exchanged at the stadium box office for four tickets (instead of two) valid on one of the following dates: Sept. 4, 5, 6, 7, 25, 26, 27 and 28. Blood drive hours are 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

In addition, they’ll be entered in a drawing after every blood drive for four people to watch Angels batting practice from the field before a specified game. Winners—who will be notified by email within 48 hours of donating blood—will receive an Angels goodie bag and four tickets to that game.

Donors must be at least 17 years old and may give blood only once every 56 days. They should be able to spend 45 minutes or so at the stadium on the day they donate.

Blood reserves tend to run low during the summer. Seriously injured patients at UC Irvine Medical Center—which annually treats half of the county’s trauma victims—and newborns in its neonatal intensive care unit are particularly vulnerable to shortages.
