Walton Arts Center Hosts Blood Drive with Live Entertainment
NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, Nov. 7, 2022 – Walton Arts Center is hosting an American Red Cross blood drive Monday, Nov. 14, from 10 am – 4 pm, in Starr Theater. Blood donors will get to enjoy live entertainment while giving blood.
The American Red Cross is encouraging donors to consider giving before the new year. Blood donations help the charitable institution respond to emergencies, provide life-saving treatments and make a meaningful difference in the lives of others.
As a thank you to blood donors, Walton Arts Center is providing live entertainment by local artists. Scheduled performers are:
- 10am–11:30am: Auralai, cello
- 12am–1:30pm: The Irie Lions, vocals, guitar, bass, drums
- 2pm–3:30pm: Adams Collins of Arkansauce, banjo
Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment at redcrossblood.org, however drop-in appointments are available on both days.
Walton Arts Center began hosting community blood drives with live entertainment in May 2020 when the demand for blood rose due to the COVID-19 pandemic and musicians were struggling as live performances were halted. The tradition has continued, and each blood drive still features local artists.
