Annual Padres summer blood drive is this Tuesday

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The Padres are teaming up with the San Diego Blood Bank for the third annual summer blood drive event at Petco Park.

The day-long event will allow donors to get autographs from Padres players and receive two free tickets to the Padres home game against the Baltimore Orioles next month.

It’s the perfect time of year to donate said Claudia Van Gonka from the San Diego Blood Bank. “Every summer we face the challenge of high schools and colleges being out, which is a big deal for us because about 20 percent of the blood we collect is at colleges and high schools.”
