Help save some lives by donating blood on Tuesday

Sioux Falls, SD- The Sioux Falls Stampede Hockey Club, Avera, Culver’s and KTWB 101.9-FM will host the 11th annual “Score One For Life” community blood drive next Tuesday, November 20th from 7 AM until 1 PM at the Avera McKennan Fitness Center front lobby and from 3:30PM until 6:30 PM at the Culver’s Restaurant on South Louise Avenue (2509 S. Louise Ave).

Every patron who signs up at either session will receive a voucher good for two (2) Stampede tickets to either the November 21st or November 23rd game, a token for a free dish or cone of Culver’s famous Custard and a FREE “3-Day” Workout Pass to the Avera McKennan Fitness Center .

Chris and Doc will be broadcasting their KTWB (101.9-FM) morning show “live” from 6 AM to 9 AM at the Fitness Center and will be joined by Stampede head coach Cary Eades who will be greeting donors from 7 AM to 9 AM. In addition, a few players will appear from 7:30 AM to 9 AM to sign autographs as well.

Four Stampede players will appear from 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM at Culver’s on South Louise Avenue to pass out custard to donors and sign autographs.

“The Holidays are a difficult time for the blood supply,” states Community Blood Bank Director Ken Versteeg . “Many people are busy with holiday activities and forget to take time to donate blood which puts a strain on the blood supply. People coming in to donate at a community blood drive like this one, just before a major holiday, is very important to help keep the local blood supply at adequate levels so we can respond to emergencies.”

Donors must be at least 17 years old, 110 pounds or more and be in good general health the day of the donation. Please bring an ID with you. An individual can donate blood safely every 56 days. Community Blood Bank is the sole supplier of blood to Avera McKennan Hospital, Avera Heart Hospital Of South Dakota, V.A. Medical Center, and Sanford Health. Click Here for more information.
