In the spirit of giving, Cannery Casino & Hotel has once again teamed up with United Blood Services to host a blood drive at the property during the Holiday season. On Sunday, December 19 from 9 a.m. – 5p.m. and Monday, December 20 from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. guests who donate blood will be compensated for their generous gift with complimentary Cannery Row Buffet for two.
As an extra thank-you to all who participate, Cannery Casino will automatically enter donors in a drawing for a chance to win two tickets to any concert of their choice featured at the Club in the Cannery. While the entertainment line up has not been determined, past concerts included Willie Nelson, The Guess Who, The Spinners and War. Tickets must be used before March 31, 2011.
