The Saint John Sea Dogs and the Moncton Wildcats, in association with engineering firm Hatch and Canadian Blood Services (CBS), are teaming up to hold the “Community Rivalry” blood drive during the month of January.
Saint John has a goal of 384 donors between Tuesday January 3rd, and Tuesday January 31st, 2017. Moncton’s goal is 976 donors. Both CBS locations will feature a thermometer which will track the number of donations throughout the month.
Fans visiting the Canadian Blood Services location in Saint John, will be entered to win one of 20 weekly pairs of tickets for the game on Friday, February 10th, against the Drummondville Voltigeurs, courtesy of Hatch! There will also be a grand prize draw for an autographed Sea Dogs jersey, drawn at the game on February 10th.
The Sea Dogs will hold a special meet-and-greet on Thursday, January 26th, from 4:30-6 pm at CBS Saint John, 405 University Avenue. Players and staff will be there for autographs, pictures and to support the community’s efforts in giving blood!
