United Blood Services Offers Donors Free Tickets to Marc Savard Comedy Hypnosis
Published on Tue, Feb 18, 2014 (10:37 a.m.)LAS VEGAS (Feb. 18, 2014) – United Blood Services of Las Vegas (UBS) is offering blood donors one voucher valid for two free admissions to Marc Savard Comedy Hypnosis in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Hotel & Casino. Donors supplying blood or platelets at any of the three Southern Nevada UBS locations and select mobile blood drives in February are eligible to receive the vouchers.
Marc Savard's long-running Vegas show is an entertaining and energetic mix of hypnosis, comedy and chaos. UBS invites donors to witness this master hypnotist compel volunteers to take a walk on their wild sides, including imagining they're invisible, irresistibly attractive and more, to the delight of cheering audiences. Self -taught, Savard starred on stage as the world's youngest professional hypnotist at 19 and was appearing in more than 200 stage shows by age 21. Instead of him being the main attraction, his volunteers become the stars of the show.
“United Blood Services is extremely thankful for community partners who allow us to offer such great incentives for our donors,” said Danny Cervantes, regional donor recruitment director for UBS. “Through the generosity of partners like Marc Savard, we are able to keep blood supply levels up throughout the year as well as match the kindness of our donors.”
UBS relies on local blood donations to make sure blood is available for those in need. The nonprofit organization aims to provide a safe and ample blood supply, while producing advanced cutting-edge research. UBS currently has a need for all blood types, especially O negative. O negative is the universal blood type and the only type that can be transfused to patients with different blood types.
