Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO), iHeart Media Youngstown, WMXY MIX 98, 93.3 The Wolf, Live Nation and local American Red Cross Blood Services Region are joining forces this holiday season and asking TSO fans to donate blood on Monday, December 22 from 8:30am-6:00pm at Stambaugh Auditorium located at 1000 5th Ave., Youngstown Ohio. In exchange for donating blood, all presenting donors will be eligible for a chance to win one of 50 pair of tickets to the Friday, January 2nd 3pm performance at The Covelli Centre!

“We are proud to partner with Trans-Siberian Orchestra with an exciting offer for our blood donors,” said Amber Evans, Senior Program Director at the American Red Cross. “Red Cross blood donors will have the opportunity to enjoy the concert and help save lives through their blood donation this holiday season.”

TSO creator Paul O’Neill explains, “There is an organization, a group of people in this world, that for well over half a century they have provided a substance so essential to human life, that without it no child could draw their first breath and no parents could hear the magical cry of a newborn infant reassuring humanity that its newest member is alive and the future filled with infinite possibilities for the better. What is so fundamental that it reminds us that everyone on this fragile little blue planet are connected to one another. Our individual journeys and ultimate destiny are interwoven.

I am sure that you have guessed by this point I am referring to blood. That precious liquid that without, everything that we are and everything that we might be ceases to exist.

Of course the organization I am referring to is the American Red Cross Blood Bank, the source of the majority of blood used by doctors to save countless lives every day. They never ask the person in need for money, all that matters is someone is in need and they are there to help.”

iHeart Media Youngstown, TSO and Live Nation invite you to give the perfect gift with the American Red Cross this holiday season and enjoy Trans-Siberian Orchestra. To schedule your appointment, simply download the blood donor app, visit www.redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS
