Blood Donors Eligible to Receive Free Tulsa Zoo Tickets

The Tulsa Zoo will be offering two free tickets to each person who donates blood to the Oklahoma Blood Institute from May 17 to August 28.

Donors will also be given a t-shirt with a snow leopard on the front, as a part of the zoo's "FEEL COOL" theme.

"We are very grateful to those who don't let summer activities interrupt their commitment to giving blood," said John Armitage, OBI President and CEO. "There's no 'vacation' for those facing life-threatening conditions that require blood transfusions. We truly appreciate the Tulsa Zoo's support of our mission, understanding the challenge of sustaining the blood supply during summer. Its partnership provides great motivation for people to take time to donate."

The Tulsa donor center for the OBI is located at 4601 E. 81st Street and is open weekdays besides Wednesday from 8:30 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon.

To schedule an appointment, call 877-340-8777.
