In 1981, 95.5 KLOS organized its first American Red Cross Blood Drive at Los Angeles High School, collecting 250 pints of blood. Twenty-eight years later, the KLOS Blood Drive has grown from a single-site, single-day event to a multi-site, multi-day event, making it one of the largest media-sponsored blood drives in the country. With the help of thousands of Southern California blood donors, the KLOS Blood Drive has collected over 105,000 units of blood since 1981 for patients who needed blood and blood products to survive accidents, heart transplants, premature births and many other ailments. This summer, the Red Cross and KLOS anticipate a phenomenal public turnout to break past records for the most blood collected.

Don't miss out on the opportunity to help save a life and attend one of Southern California's best Classic Rock Concerts. Tickets are limited and those wishing to participate in the 28th Annual KLOS Blood Drive are strongly encouraged to make an appointment to donate blood at one of the 19 official locations.
