Donate blood, get Brewers tickets

BloodCenter of Wisconsin will partner with the Milwaukee Brewers during the annual Big League Blood Drive. The event takes place Tuesday, Aug. 23 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Miller Park.

Anyone who donates blood during this event will receive a voucher for two tickets to a future Brewers game. Donors will be able to choose to attend a game on either Thursday, Sept. 8 against the Philadelphia Phillies or Tuesday, Sept. 13 against the Colorado Rockies.

Anyone 16 years old or older is eligible to donate if they are in good health and weigh at least 110 pounds. Anyone under 18 needs parental consent and is asked to visit to view specific height and weight requirements.

All blood types are needed and the process takes about an hour. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call (877) 232-4376 or visit the website.
