Nashville Predators Host Red Cross Blood Drive

Give Blood Play Hockey T-shirts for all Blood Drive Participants



(Nashville, Tenn., Dec. 21, 2011)


The Nashville Predators are out for blood, but not from another NHL team.  The Nashville Predators are sponsoring an American Red Cross blood drive and encouraging their fans to donate. 


It only takes about an hour to donate blood.  In that hour, you can unwrap a lifetime of memories for hospital patients in your community and across the country.  The need for blood is constant and doesn’t pause for the holidays.  By taking time to donate this winter, you can help the Red Cross ensure a stable blood supply for all patients who need blood products.


You are invited to give blood at the Nashville Predators blood drive on Wednesday, Dec. 28, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Bridgestone Arena located at 501 Broadway in Nashville. 


Walk-in blood donors are welcome.  You may also schedule your donation appointment by calling 1-800-RED CROSS or logging on to and entering sponsor code:  Preds19.


Anyone who presents to donate blood at the Nashville Predators blood drive receives a voucher for a pair of tickets to an upcoming game and a Give Blood Play Hockey T-shirt, while supplies last.
