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.
