Event description

Description

San Antonio Northside Lions Club is hosting a donor drive to benefit our friends at the San Antonio Eye Bank & South Texas Blood Center.

Often individuals will make a New Year's Resolution and not follow through withit. We're making it easy for you to plan ahead to succeed with at least 1 goal - the goal to make a difference through donation.

Please select an event ticket to commit to sign up to donate blood for the blood drive portion of the event. We need at least 25 commitments to solidfy the blood mobile at Huebner Medical Center.

After you've donated blood, consider scheduling to take a tour of the San Antonio Eye Bank. Annually, the San Antonio Eye Bank helps restore sight to hundreds of patients in need of cornea transplants, thanks to selfless donors and donor families.
