Donate blood this week and receive a free ticket to the Wisconsin State Fair

The Blood Center of Wisconsin is hosting a Blood Drive at the Tommy Thompson Youth Center at Wisconsin State Fair.

The Blood Drive will take place on Wednesday, June 28th and Thursday, June 29th from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. on both days.

The center is located at 640 South 84th Street in West Allis. 

All attempting donors will receive one free ticket to the Wisconsin State Fair.

Appointments are encouraged. To schedule, an appointment click here or call 1-877-BE-A-HERO. Walk-ins are also welcome.

According to the Blood Center, Blood donations decrease in summer months, particularly around the Fourth of July holiday. Unfortunately, the summer season is often when the need is the greatest to treat accident victims and others in emergency situations — which makes the need for O negative blood all the more critical.

Anyone 16 or older who is in general good health and meets eligibility requirements is encouraged to donate blood. Parental consent is required for 16-year-olds to donate. The entire process takes about an hour. Donors should bring a photo ID that includes birth date.
