CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

If you'd give your left arm for a chance to go to Cedar Point for free, now's your chance to prove it! 

This summer, the American Red Cross, Cedar Fair theme parks and iHeartMedia/Cleveland Region are partnering to offer a free Cedar Fair theme park ticket, including Cedar Point, to those who come out to donate blood at select blood drives. Donors can also enter to win one of two grand prize packages for four to Knott’s Berry Farm in California or Cedar Point.

"Blood and platelet donations are especially needed during the summer months when donations slow due to summer vacations and travel among regular donors," said Christy Peters, External Communications Manager for the Red Cross Northern Ohio Blood Services Region. "Thanks to the support of Cedar Fair, blood donors can help save lives and have the time of their lives at a Cedar Fair theme park."

Everyone who donates at select blood drives will receive one free ticket, valid for entry to any U.S. Cedar Fair theme park, including Cedar Point, while supplies last. Now through Sept. 5, donors can also visit redcrossblood.org/cedarfair to enter to win a grand prize package and take advantage of an exclusive ticket offer that gives $2 of each ticket purchased online back to the Red Cross.
