Cheyenne Frontier Days will host it’s annual Daddy of ‘em All® Volunteer Challenge Blood Drive on Monday, June 5 at the Cheyenne Frontier Days Event Center from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Community and Cheyenne Frontier Days Volunteers are urged to participate in the blood drive.
Anyone who donates will be automatically entered to win one of several prizes including: two V.I.P. Rodeo Passes, two tickets to the SOLD OUT Zach Bryan Concert on July 23, CFD branded merchandise, and more.
Donors are encouraged to make an appointment to donate blood at the Cheyenne Frontier Days Blood Drive by visiting donors.vitalant.org and using the blood drive code: CFD. Donors can also call Steve Moehr at (307) 262-6222 to get scheduled for the June 5 Cheyenne Frontier Days blood drive. Walk-ins are welcome.
The public is invited to join Cheyenne Frontier Days™ volunteers, friends and staff at a blood drive on December 21 and 22 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Cheyenne Frontier Days™ Event Center.
According to Vitalant, the nonprofit community blood service provider coordinating the drive, the community is facing a critical need for blood donations this winter. Healthcare systems are stretched thin and many blood drives have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Vitalant protects donors by following CDC safety guidelines, and all donors will be tested for COVID-19 antibodies. Even someone who has already had COVID-19 and recovered can make a difference, since their plasma can help someone who is currently fighting the virus.
“We are eager to do our part to help our community,” said Tom Hirsig, Cheyenne Frontier Days CEO. “It’s not often that we get a chance to give someone the gift of life. The more of us who donate, the more lives we can potentially save.”
Everyone who donates during the CFD Blood Drive will be entered into a drawing to win Two VIP Passes to the PRCA Rodeo Performance of their choice during the 125th Cheyenne Frontier Days™ in July. The package includes a special pre-rodeo lunch.
