Win Thunder tickets during 10th annual Holiday Blood Drive

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Blood Institute’s 10th annual Holiday Blood Drive is December 30 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and this year, all donors will be entered for a chance to win free Thunder tickets.

Rumble the Bison and the Thunder Girls will visit during the day to pump up Thunder spirit by cheering on the donors. Entertainment will include a D.J., trivia, a kids’ play area and more.

“We are proud to be part of this critically important event for the last 10 years,” said Christine Berney, vice president of Community Relations for the Thunder. “This time of year, we love seeing Thunder fans come together, embrace the spirit of the holiday and make a significant difference for our neighbors in need.”

Donors will also receive a free commemorative, long-sleeved Thunder-themed t-shirt.

Free parking is available in the garage beneath the Cox Convention Center and donors are encouraged to use the southwest entrance.

 Oklahoma Blood Institute and the Oklahoma City Thunder are urging Oklahomans to “Thunder Up” and save lives during the Holiday Assist Blood Drive this year.
