Buckin' For Blood Offers Rodeo Tickets for Donations

Posted: Updated:

United Blood Services will have a blood drive Wednesday afternoon in South Reno. Donors will get tickets to the Reno Rodeo and a chance to win a new car.

Buckin' for Blood will be held at the Tamarack Junction on South Virginia street in South Reno from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

All blood donors will receive a voucher for two rodeo tickets. Plus, when you redeem the tickets, you will be entered to win a 2013 Toyota Corolla.

"It's no secret," said Lindsey Baker, Donor Recruitment Supervisor with United Blood Services. "People simply are much busier than they are at other times of the year. Although donors might have other things to do, patients continue to need blood."

If you are one of those people short on time, you can fill out the Health History Questionnaire before you get there. You can find that at www.unitedbloodservices.org. You can also make an appointment to give blood at www.bloodhero.com or by calling United Blood Services at (775) 324-6454.

Volunteer donors must be at least 16 years old, weigh 110 lbs and be in good health. Additional height and weight requirements apply to donors under 22. Donors who are 16 must have signed permission from a parent or guardian.
