BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Donating blood or platelets could give you a chance at watching next year’s Super Bowl in-person.

The American Red Cross says that anyone who donates during the month of January will be entered to win two tickets to Super Bowl LVI in Los Angeles.

Along with that, those who donate through January 20 will also be entered to win the Big Game at Home package, which includes a 65-inch TV and a $500 gift card for food and fun.

“Blood and plasma donors who have recovered from COVID-19 may have the power to help critically ill patients currently battling the virus,” said Dr. Erin Goodhue, Red Cross medical director of clinical services. “With hospital distributions for convalescent plasma increasing about 250 percent since October, these generous donations are vital in helping to save lives throughout the winter – a time that is often challenging to collect enough blood products for those in need.”

Below are the upcoming dates, times and locations for donating in western New York. To schedule an appointment, call 1-800-RED-CROSS, visit this site, use the Red Cross’ Blood Donor app, or activate the Blood Scheduling skill for Amazon Alexa.
