Oktoberfest…For Beer Lovers and Lifesavers!
Leaves…pumpkins…sweater weather…and beer! That’s the sweet sound of October! And there’s no better way to ring in the Fall season than by saving lives with TBC! Good news — we’re teaming up with community-centered breweries the entire month so you can get rewarded for being a lifesaver.
It’s Oktoberfest the TBC way! Just like our brewery partners, we take pride in being local. As your community blood center, blood donations stay local, so when you donate with TBC, you save lives in the community. To celebrate Oktoberfest and our communities, TBC will be having mobile blood drives at various local breweries. Stop by to donate blood and you’ll walk away with a brewery gift card and snazzy koozie to hold that cold one.
(Please do not drink alcohol before or after donating blood)
