The Seattle Storm teamed up with Bloodworks Northwest and San Juan Seltzer to save lives this summer! As the sponsors of the Happy Hour “Pint for Pint” promotion, all individuals that donated blood through August 4, 2019, received two free tickets to a Happy Hour game and a voucher for a San Juan Seltzer at the game. This offer was available through any Washington State Bloodworks Northwest Donor Center. Post donation, donors received a confirmation email with a link to claim their tickets. Happy Hour takes place on Thursday and Friday night games, from the time doors open until tip-off. The Storm hosted seven Happy Hour games during the 2019 season.
A special kick-off blood drive took place on Friday, June 14, 2019 – World Blood Donor Day – at the Everett Donor Center (2703 Oakes Avenue) between 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. The first 30 donors received Storm swag in addition to the Happy Hour tickets post-donation.
For every pint of blood collected through the Pint for Pint program, three lives can be saved. In 2018, nearly 2,000 Storm fans donated blood at a Bloodworks Northwest Donor Center, saving an estimated 5,697 lives. Let’s save more lives together! Please continue to donate throughout the year and save more lives.
