Islanders Host Red Cross Blood Drive on Draft Party Day

by Staff Writer / New York Islanders

Hop over the boards at Nassau Coliseum and join the New York Islanders and the American Red Cross for a blood drive on Friday June 27.

Come out to donate blood at Nassau Coliseum between noon and 7 p.m. and you will receive a voucher for two tickets to an Islanders home game during the 2014-15 season, a Red Cross t-shirt, as well as a chance to win signed Isles memorabilia and more.

The Red Cross blood drive will take place in the Expo Hall of the Coliseum. Walk-ins are welcome, but donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment in advance by calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or by visiting and entering the sponsor code: islanders. Please enter the Coliseum through the box office entrance.

The blood drive coincides with the Islanders Draft Party, which begins at 5:30 p.m. Come watch the Islanders make their selection, meet Islanders Eric Boulton, Calvin de Haan, Anders Lee, Matt Martin, Ryan Strome, the team’s mascot Sparky and members of the Ice Girls.

Donating blood helps save lives all across Long Island, so roll up your sleeve and get some great Islanders prizes while doing it.
