Summer of music perks for blood donors

Summer is a time for going out, having fun, and enjoying outdoor concerts. It is also a great time to present to donate blood, as there are many summer promotions. The next weeks feature two big partnerships that can get you sweet rewards related to upcoming concerts.

Next week you can join KGON (92.3) and the Red Cross for the 2nd Annual “ALL ROCKERS BLEED”. From Tuesday (July 26th) to Saturday (July 30th), anyone that stops by and donates blood or attempts to donate at any of three blood donor centers in Portland, Salem or Vancouver will receive a special gift, including a one of a kind commemorative KGON t-shirt and a ticket to the Clark County Fair, while supplies last. They also have a chance to enter to win a pair of concert tickets to Three Days Grace, Motley Crue, Beach Boys courtesy of the Clark County Fair and Def Leppard with Heart courtesy of the Sleep Country Amphitheater in Vancouver, Washington. Additionally, the KGON street team will be at the Portland Donor Center for the “ALL ROCKERS BLEED” blood drive on Friday, July 29th between 7:30 am – 1 pm to give away additional t-shirts and concert tickets.

Also returning this year is the Music Saves Lives campaign in conjunction with the Vans Warped Tour. For the next few weeks special blood drives across the region will offer VIP passes for those that present to donate, leading up to the concerts August 13th in George, Washington and August 14th in Hillsboro, Oregon (while supplies last). The VIP pass can grant donors access to exclusive meet and greets with the bands and to special concert areas such as the Music Saves Lives tent. For more information, visit the Music Saves Lives website.
