Event Description:

San Diego Blood Bank and San Diego Chargers Team Up to Save Lives at Chargers Drive 38
Presented by San Diego County Credit Union

The San Diego Blood Bank will host one of San Diego’s longest-running events, Chargers Drive 38, presented by San Diego County Credit Union on Tuesday, Nov. 22 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Town & Country Convention Center in Mission Valley. In addition to an all-day blood drive, attendees can meet Chargers players, enjoy entertainment and take advantage of free bone marrow registry testing.  Activities also include a “Wellness Zone” with interactive exhibits, musical entertainment, complimentary food sampling and a performance by the Charger Girls.

The blood drive kicks off at 8 a.m. and the “End Zone” entertainment area opens at 9 a.m.

Admission for Chargers Drive 38 is $5 per person. Blood donors may request a refund of their admission price after they donate. Blood donors also receive a Chargers Drive 38 T-shirt, VIP wristband for the autograph line, and parking validation.  Parking cost at the hotel for other attendees is $4 per hour ($8 maximum). 

Additionally a new Honda CR-V will be given away the day of the drive. The general public is encouraged to purchase an entry for their chance to win.  The vehicle was donated by the Honda Dealers of San Diego County, and entry proceeds benefit the San Diego Blood Bank’s lifesaving programs and services.

“Chargers Mania” kicks off November 6. Donate at an SDBB donor center or mobile drive through November 21 and receive a voucher that may be redeemed at the Chargers Drive for the t-shirt and VIP wristband for the autograph line.

Blood collected at Chargers Drive 38 will help hospital patients in the San Diego community and beyond. Blood donations are especially critical at this time of year because donations often decrease during the holidays while the need for more blood often can increase.
