Padres Summer Blood Drive 2019

June 19, 2019

On Tuesday, June 18 the San Diego Blood Bank held the Padres Summer Blood Drive. Sycuan Casino Resort was the presenting sponsor for the third consecutive year and proudly donated $15,000 to support the event.

The San Diego Padres stepped up to the plate to help make sure there is an adequate blood supply for people in our local hospitals – at a time when it’s most needed.

The Padres Summer Blood Drive was an opportunity for donors to save lives, meet players and alumni, and enjoy appearances by the Pad Squad and Swingin’ Friar.
