?CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS. April 14, 2018 – The Coastal Bend Blood Center would like to welcome the community to its 2nd Annual "Battle of the Breweries: A Pint for a Pint" blood drive series occurs on Saturday, April 14th at various breweries across Corpus Christi area and Port Aransas. The blood drive series is a friendly competition amongst the breweries to see who can collect the most pints of blood at their blood drive.

Following Spring Break and after Easter, blood donations are traditionally on the decline due to schools going on break and many residents going on vacation. The Blood Center is hoping this event will provide a fun and convenient way for donors to give the gift of life. In exchange for a pint of blood, every donor will receive fun incentives such as: pint of beer, koozies and gift cards.

This event is designed to encourage donors of all blood types to donate. While this blood drive series is a celebration, it is a celebration with a purpose, as the Blood Center must work to ensure a stable blood supply throughout the year. Donors can participate in the blood drive series at one of the following locations: 

  • B&J’s Pizza-Staples: 12:00pm-4:00pm
  • B&J’s Pizza-SPID: 5:00pm-8:00pm
