Big League Blood Drive: Give blood, get Brewers tickets!

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- There was no baseball game at Miller Park on Wednesday, August 27th, but there was plenty of activity inside the stadium.

Wednesday was Day Two of the BloodCenter of Wisconsin's "Big League Blood Drive" at Miller Park.

All blood donors received a voucher for two tickets to an upcoming Brewers game.

The BloodCenter says the drive is to increase supplies for the upcoming Labor Day holiday.

"Families have travel and are wrapping up for school. The inventory goes down, so we partner with the Brewers in an effort to increase our inventory," Denise Dembosky with the BloodCenter of Wisconsin said.

"It's very rewarding just knowing that you are helping people, especially in time of shortages, so I encourage all people to come and give blood," Dawn Odell said.

The BloodCenter says it expects about 500 donors for this blood drive.
