This holiday season, the San Francisco Dungeon and American Red Cross are teaming up once again for a “Bloodletting” donation drive. Participants are invited to give blood onsite at the San Francisco Dungeon Friday, December 8 from 12 to 6 p.m. Donors will receive free admission to the underground attraction and a dose of terribly fun entertainment from the San Francisco Dungeon’s motley cast of notorious characters.

 

Blood donation is an ongoing and necessary effort that helps save thousands of lives each year. Bay Area residents looking to make a difference through blood donation can do so this December in a truly unique way. The American Red Cross is setting up a remote blood donation center in the San Francisco Dungeon’s special event space overlooking the scenic and bustling Fisherman’s Wharf.

 

This special “Bloodletting” event offers participants an opportunity to sit back and give the gift of blood while enjoying a lovely view and the spooky antics from the San Francisco Dungeon’s mischievous residents. Each donor will also receive one complimentary pass to the interactive attraction.

 

To sign up for the “Bloodletting” donation event, visit redcrossblood.org and enter sponsor name DUNGEON or call 1-800-RED-CROSS. Participants are encouraged to streamline the donation process by going to redcrossblood.org/rapidpass to complete pre-donation materials and health history prior to the December 8 event. The donation process generally takes about 75 minutes.

The San Francisco Dungeon is the ultimate live action journey through the Bay Area’s murky past where the audience is part of the show.
