Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tyoka Jackson to Stage Bay Area Blood Drives

WHO: Tampa Bay Buccaneers DE/DT Tyoka Jackson and Florida Blood Services.

WHAT: As part of his "Tyokas Troops" game day ticket program, Jackson has teamed up with Florida Blood Services to sponsor four blood and bone marrow drives. Bay area residents who donate blood or marrow during one of Jacksons drives will automatically be entered into a lottery system that will give them the chance to win a pair of Buccaneers home game tickets. Jackson and other Buccaneers players will be present at each drive.

Jackson will donate 12 pairs of tickets to each regular season Buccaneers home game and will provide Buccaneers T-shirts to those who attend the game as his guests. Six pairs of tickets will go to blood drive lottery winners, and Jackson will also provide six pairs to family members of patients who are waiting for bone marrow transplants.

Jackson is also donating 12 pairs of tickets to each of the Buccaneers` pre-season contests. Local patients who are currently on the National Marrow Donor Program waiting list for a bone marrow transplant received tickets to the Cleveland Browns game on August 14. Donors who have given 20 or more gallons of blood to FBS will be eligible for tickets to the August 28 New England Patriots game.
