Be a Hero at the Big House

Join us for our largest event of the year. In consideration of the pandemic, we'll be converting this event to a hybrid virtual/in-person experience. Keep an eye on our social media sites for more information about the day's online entertainment. 

Blood donors are encouraged to donate blood at the biggest blood drive in Southeast Michigan. Blood donations will count towards the Blood Battle competition against OSU. Attendees also have the opportunity to join the organ donor registry or be screened as a bone marrow donor. There will be virtual entertainment, activities, giveaways, special guests, and more throughout the day. More information coming soon. 


COMING SOON: Make an appointment to donate blood at using sponsor code "goblue". For information about the Red Cross’ safety protocols during the pandemic, click here.
