Donating red for the orange and black

The Orioles don't return home to Baltimore until Monday, August 16, but O's fans can head to Camden Yards for a good cause even earlier than that.

On Saturday, August 14 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., OriolesREACH and the American Red Cross will host an American Red Cross Blood Drive at Oriole Park.

If you can make it out to donate blood and benefit a good cause, you'll also have the chance to meet former Orioles Rick Dempsey and Boog Powell while you're at the Yard.

But that's not all...

All donors who turn out to give blood this Saturday will also receive two free tickets to an Orioles game and a Matt Wieters bobblehead, and one lucky donor will even win a VIP Experience, which includes tickets to an upcoming O's game and the chance to watch batting practice from the field.

So if your Saturday's still free, call 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-27677) to sign up, as reservations must be made in advance.
