Donating blood isn’t so bad, right? There’s a small prick in your arm, a dozen seconds of discomfort, and - poof! - you’ve just potentially saved the lives of three people. While there’s actually no “poof” noise involved, the Buffalo Sabres and UNYTS will host a blood drive at HSBC Arena on Wednesday (Jan. 12) from 10 AM - 5 PM.
Plus, this Sabres blood drive has perks - former players Grant Ledyard, Darryl Shannon, Rob Ray, and Larry Playfair will be on hand to sign autographs, pose for photos, and even tell jokes. Also, the first 200 donors will receive a complimentary “Donate Life” New Era hat and 12 ounces of Tim Horton’s coffee. Just don’t drink the coffee immediately after donating - you won’t want to dehydrate yourself too much!
