Preston & Steve's 9th Annual Blood Drive is sponsored by The Piazza Auto Group. It's happening Saturday, June 21st (6am to 2pm) at The Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA. The Philadelphia Chapter of the American Red Cross Blood Reserves get really low this time of year and we are calling on you to help.
Everyone that makes an appointment, and comes out to donate will receive a collectible Preston & Steve t-shirt and will be eligible to win a Pair of tickets to see KISS and Def Leppard, August 3rd at the SB Center. (Tickets are on sale now HERE.)
We'll have kid-friendly activities too- kids yoga with Aim High Studios Collegeville, free crafts with Paint-a-Treasure Paint & Take Studio, Face Painting with Fantastic Faces by Becky, and Alex's Lemonade Stand. Also, some free fresh-baked cookies from Max & Erma's.

**To be eligible to donate you MUST make an appointment PRIOR to NOON on Friday, June 20th, while appointments last - appointments are limited, once all slots are full, we will not be able to take any more. Walk Ups are not permitted, in order to keep donor flow going.
A confirmation postcard will be sent to donors who make phone appointments. A confirmation email will be sent to donors who make online appointments. Donors should bring their confirmation to the blood drive.
To donate blood you must be in good general health, at least 17 years old and weigh 110 pounds or more. In PA and NJ, 16-year-olds may donate blood with parental consent.
Have a Tattoo? If you got a tattoo in a state or tattoo shop that is NOT regulated, you have to wait 12 months to donate. A regulated facility means they use sterile needles and ink that is not reused. Cosmetic tattoos applied in a licensed establishment in a regulated state using sterile needles and ink that is not reused is acceptable. There are 40 states that currently regulate tattoo facilities. For more information on tattoo requirements, CLICK HERE.
