SUNRISE, Fla. – On Saturday, April 15, prior to the Florida Panthers-Washington Capitals game, the BankAtlantic Center will be the site of a Community Blood Centers of South Florida (CBCSF) blood drive. CBCSF supplies 47 local hospitals and 136 health care facilities in Miami-Dade, Broward, West Palm Beach, and Monroe counties.

"We are always happy to help CBCSF in any way that we can," Sunrise Sports & Entertainment chief operating officer Michael Yormark said. "I am positive our fans and staff will rise to the occasion and help fulfill a need in the community."

CBCSF will be set up on the 400 level by section 433 and will be taking donations starting at 6:30 p.m. throughout the Panthers-Capitals game presented by Sprint Nextel. Donors are eligible to receive a free T-shirt from CBCSF, a two-for-one voucher to see Clifford the Big Red Dog at the Sinatra Theatre presented by BankAtlantic and a free ticket to the Panthers-Atlanta game on Tuesday, April 18 at the BankAtlantic Center.
