News Release: Padres to take over annual blood drive.


San Diego Padres Announce New Annual Blood Drive During Celebrate San Diego Event at Petco Park in Front of 12,000

Padres Ownership Announces Plan to Start New Blood Drive Event After Chargers Bold for Los Angeles

San Diego, Ca. (February 11, 2017) – As hard as it is for some to understand, the San Diego Chargers have left the city for a new beginning in the Los Angeles area. This hurt the San Diego community for many reasons; one of which has nothing to do with a game.
In front of 12,000 San Diego sports fans, and non-fans alike, Padres ownership announced their own blood drive to take place at Petco Park on June 27th, replacing the Chargers own 38-yearold blood drive that ended when the team ended its lease with San Diego.
“San Diego is more than sports,” Padres executive chairman Ron Fowler said from the stage. “We love this city and are committed to its continued growth.”
