The Boston Red Sox are huge supporters of the American Red Cross Blood Donor Program and to get New Englanders involved, they are giving you a chance to be Blood Donor of the Game. Want to be adored by thousands at Fenway Park with your name in lights on the center field video board?! It can happen, just donate blood or platelets during the Red Sox season and you could win the honor of being named Blood Donor of the Game. You'll get a pair of tickets to a home game, lots of recognition from your favorite team and a special commemorative souvenir.

The American Red Cross will be holding a blood drive right here at One City Center in Portland on Friday, April 27th form 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Join us if you can. You can fast track your donation by visiting redcrossblood.org/rapidpass to complete your paperwork. Call 1-800 RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org to schedule an appointment or find a blood drive by you.

The need for blood is severe, many donors were kept away because of school snow days, blood drive closures due to weather and the flu. Every two seconds someone needs blood, please give if you can.
