Red Cross seeks blood
The Northwest Arkansas Naturals are partnering with the American Red Cross on a blood drive in August. An emergency call for blood and platelet donations was issued due to a current shortage.
Each person that donates blood or platelets to the American Red Cross through Aug. 15 will receive a voucher for two free dugout premium tickets to the Naturals’ game on Aug. 22 against the Springfield (Mo.) Cardinals. The voucher will need to be turned into the Arvest Ballpark Box Office in advance
or on the day of the game, when it will be exchanged for the best available seats.
