Bills fans can score tickets and save lives with ConnectLife Thanksgiving week!
All donors will be entered to win tickets to Bills-Patriots on New Year’s Eve
Blood donations are harder to come by around the holidays, but the need at local hospitals doesn’t drop – so ConnectLife is offering an extra reason for Western New Yorkers to roll up their sleeves the week of Thanksgiving.
All donors between Monday, November 20th and Saturday, November 25th will be entered to win a pair of tickets to the Buffalo Bills home game against the New England Patriots on New Year’s Eve. And those donors will have no trouble keeping warm – the tickets are for the all-inclusive M&T Club.
“Every year, we see blood donations drop between Thanksgiving and New Year’s when family gatherings and holiday travel take a lot of people away from Western New York,” said Sarah Diina, Senior Director of Marketing & Community Development at ConnectLife. “We want our donors who do find that time to know how much we appreciate them – and what better way than a cozy seat at a critical game for the Bills?”
All donors will also receive the November reward of $5 at Moe’s Southwest Grill, along with points that can be used for gift cards and apparel in ConnectLife’s online store.
ConnectLife has representatives available to discuss that need for blood as well as photo and video opportunities at local blood drives.
ConnectLife is Western New York’s only community blood bank supplying more than 70% of the blood need at local hospitals, thanks to the incredible generosity of area blood donors. Anyone can find drives or make an appointment by visiting www.ConnectLifeGiveBlood.org, texting GIVEWNY to 999777, or calling 716.529.4270.
