The 6th annual blood drive will take place inside the suite level of US Bank Arena.

Donors will get free parking along Mehring Way. Enter the building through the Arena security office. Take the elevator to the 5th floor for access to the blood drive. If parking is full, donors can park at The Landing near Yeatman's Cove or the East Garage next door to the arena. Donors will have to pay $6 for parking at those areas. Please still plan to enter the Arena via the Mehring Way entrance.

All donors will receive a Cyclones cap, two tickets to an upcoming Cyclones game, and a coupon for a free personal pizza from Donatos Pizza. Meet Coach Ben Simon and other members of the team when they visit the blood drive.
