November is Erie Otters Month at the Community Blood Bank!
Every person presenting to donate in November, whether at our fixed site at 26th and Peach Street in Erie, or at a drive near you, will receive a voucher for two (2) tickets to any Erie Otters home game. In addition to this, you will be entered into a drawing for one of four grand prizes, all Otters related!
Every week we will unveil one of the grand prizes, which will all be drawn at the end of the month, so be sure to follow us on social media!
