Donate blood with the Buffalo Sabres and Unyts Monday

Posted at 9:56 AM, Feb 13, 2017

The Buffalo Sabres are hosting a Unyts Blood Drive at KeyBank Center Monday.

Unyts, Western New York's only organ, eye, tissue and community blood center, supplies most of the blood for WNY hospitals.

During the blood drive, Unyts will be raffling off 500 tickets to Sabres games and if a donor refers a friend, they could get a tour of the KeyBank Center from Sabres Head Coach Dan Bylsma.

Donors may also catch a glimpse of Sabretooth and Sabres alumni at the event.

Parking is complimentary in the attached HarborCenter ramp.

Blood donors must be at least 17 years old - 16-year-olds can donate with parental consent.

The event will go until 5:00 p.m. Monday. If you can't make the donation event on Monday, you can also donate at any Unyts Neighborhood Blood Donation Center until February 16 to be eligible for the ticket giveaway and refere a friend offer.
