Written by WKTN Staff on June 27, 2019
COLUMBUS, Ohio (June 25, 2019) — This summer, the American Red Cross and Cedar Fair theme parks are partnering to offer a free Cedar Fair park ticket to those who come to donate blood at select blood drives. The Cedar Fair ticket offer will be available at this upcoming blood drive:
• 7/9/2019, Knights of Columbus Marion, 12–7 pm, 1232 E. Center St., Marion, OH
All those who come to donate at select blood drives will receive one free ticket, valid for entry to participating U.S. Cedar Fair parks, including Cedar Point, Kings Island and others, while supplies last. Appointments are strongly encouraged. Those with appointments will be take first. Tickets are valid through Sept. 2, 2019, and other restrictions may apply. Donors can also visit RedCrossBlood.org/CedarFair to take advantage of an exclusive ticket offer that gives $2 of each ticket purchased online back to the Red Cross.
“Blood and platelet donations are always needed, but especially during the summer months when donations decline due to summer vacations and travel among regular donors,” said Rodney Wilson, communications manager for Red Cross Blood Services. “Thanks to the support of Cedar Fair, donors can help save lives and have the time of their lives at a Cedar Fair theme park.”
The partnership with Cedar Fair includes 10 parks across the U.S. with a goal of increasing blood and platelet donations during the summer months when donations decrease, but the need remains constant.
