This Memorial Day weekend, the Cannery Casino & Hotel will host a critical need blood drive to help victims of drunk driving, organ transplant patients, children with leukemia, new mothers, victims of violent crimes, major surgery patients and more.
Memorial Day weekend is the kickoff to summer and blood usage increases while blood donations decrease.
With more outdoor activities and travel, every donation is needed.  
The Cannery supports our local community by hosing a weekend of blood drives. The goal is to collect over 300 pints of life-saving blood for United Blood Services.
More than 50 percent of the population is eligible to donate blood, but only 5 percent actually donate. With just one donation’s ability to help up to three patients, in Southern Nevada, residents have the ability to save lives.
Donors receive two free buffet coupons (21 years of age or older) and 1000 CanClub points.
One lucky winner per day will win 2 free tickets to Michael McDonald concert and every regular donor who brings in a first-time donor will each receive a free movie ticket to Cannery Galaxy Luxury+ Theatre.
