2018 Padres Summer Blood Drive

Sycuan was honored to once again partner with the San Diego Padres and the San Diego Blood Bank for their 2018 Padres Summer Blood Drive. This is the second annual year for the blood drive and second time Sycuan has been the presenting sponsor.

On Tuesday, June 5, Chairman Cody Martinez of the Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation proudly presented $15,000 for the event. Sycuan has been a supporter of the San Diego Blood Bank since 1995. 

“The San Diego Blood Bank is very thankful for our partnership with Sycuan Casino,” David Wellis, CEO, San Diego Blood Bank. “For more than 20 years, they have generously supported the San Diego Blood Bank’s lifesaving programs with charitable contributions that have helped save countless lives throughout San Diego County and beyond. We appreciate Sycuan Casino’s compassion and vision. We couldn’t do what we do without valued partners like Sycuan Casino.”

 “Sycuan is always on the side of making good things happen in San Diego,” said County Supervisor of San Diego, Ron Roberts during the presentation of sponsors,

This year, the San Diego Blood Bank exceeded their goal of collecting more than 350 pints from donors!

Attendees enjoyed a fun day full of activities including autographs by players and alumni, appearances by the Pad Squad and Swingin’ Friar, music and more. All donors also received two tickets to a future Padres home game and VIP access to a Padres and alumni autograph booth.
