If your appointment is at New Era Field, please park in lot #2 and check in for the drive in front of the Dunn Tire Club. We are using extra space at the stadium to appropriately space out donors and staff.

NEW Updates:

We are excited to offer a new incentive for this year’s Bills drive. All donors with an appointment will receive an exclusive Bills t-shirt.

The drive will be by appointment only and we’re asking only donors to attend to help with safety and proper social distancing.

Please arrive on time for your appointment. We are working to space donors out and this will help greatly.

Safety is our top priority and all safety measures will continue to be followed for this blood drive: 

  • If you are not feeling well, please reschedule your appointment for another time.

  • Everyone needs to wear a mask.

  • We ask everyone to maintain appropriate social distancing. 

  • All facilities and equipment undergo frequent cleaning and disinfection and we are performing additional cleaning and sanitizing of all beds, equipment, surfaces after each donor. 

*Rewards are subject to change if necessary. Appointments are required to receive the reward.*

What is ConnectLife Champions about?

  • It's a special group of frequent donors who donate at Buffalo Bills, Sabres, Bandits, Bisons and One Buffalo blood drives and receive special perks for doing so.

What are the benefits of being part of the team?

  • Donors will recieve a special event giveaway at ConnectLife Champions drives.

  • Please NOTE: there are bigger drives where we do require donors to have an appointment in order to recieve the giveaway. We will provide details in our materials and communications and update this page for each drive with that information. 

  • New for 2020! - Additionally, the number of donations made at ConnectLife Champions drives during a calendar year, count as entries into bigger raffles at the end of the year. Double red donations count as two donations and two entries into the raffles. Raffles include tickets to Sabres suite, tickets to Bandits suite, gift cards to (716) or The Draft Room, autographed items/equipment, gift cards to team stores.    

  • Only donations made at ConnectLife Champions drives will count toward entries into the Champions raffles. 

How do I join ConnectLife Champions?

  • Just make an appointment for one of the Champions blood drives with our Buffalo sports teams and start donating. 

I was part of the team last year, am I still part of ConnectLife Champions?

  • Our hope is that ConnectLife Champions will grow every year. There are five Champions drives each year where donors have the potential to donate, receive free giveaways, and get entered into exciting end-of-year raffles. 

  • Your entries into the end-of-year raffles are based on donations made at the Champions drives each calendar year.

I like to donate Double Reds - but that means I'm not eligible every drive.

  • Double red donors donate two units of red cells with every donation! As a double red donor, each time you donate at ConnectLife Champions drives, you will be credited for two donations and two entries into each of the end-of-year raffles.
