Sioux Falls Stampede to Host Event to Save Local Lives



Sioux Falls, SD- The Sioux Falls Stampede Hockey Club, Culver’s and Big Country 92.5-FM will host the 16th annual “Score One For Life” community blood drive on Tuesday, November 20th from 11:00 A.M. until 2:00 P.M. at Culver’s Restaurant on Minnesota Ave. (2800 S. MN Ave.), 11:00 A.M. until 2:00 P.M. at Culver’s Restaurant on 69th St. and Louise Ave. and from 4:00PM until 7:00 PM at the Culver’s Restaurant on South Louise Avenue (2509 S. Louise Ave).


Every patron who signs up at either session will receive four (4) Stampede tickets to either the November 24th home game versus Dubuque or the December 4th game versus Des Moines, a pint of Culver’s famous custard and an event t-shirt.


The Stampede will have a few players signing autographs from 11 AM to 12 PM at the Minnesota Avenue location.  Big Country 92.5-FM will be broadcasting live from Culver’s on South Louise Avenue from 4 to 6 PM and several players will help wait on tables and sign autographs from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM.


“With a four-day Thanksgiving holiday weekend coming up, it becomes increasingly difficult to sure up the blood supply for the local area,” states Ken Versteeg, Executive Director, Community Blood Bank. “Many people are busy with holiday activities and forget to take time to donate blood which puts a strain on the blood supply. People coming in to donate at a community blood drive like this one, just before a major holiday, is very important to help keep the local blood supply at adequate levels so we can respond to emergencies.”


Donors must be at least 17 years old, 110 pounds or more and be in good general health the day of the donation.  Please bring an ID with you.  An individual can donate blood safely every 56 days.  Community Blood Bank is the sole supplier of blood to Avera McKennan Hospital, Avera Heart Hospital, the V.A. Medical Center, Sioux Falls Surgical Hospital, Sanford Children’s and Sanford Health. Click Here for more information.


Community Blood Banks is a nonprofit, cooperative of Sanford and Avera Health and the sole blood provider to 36 local hospitals.  Community Blood Bank is not associated with any other blood bank organizations.
