aMAYzing things to come in May

Posted: May 01, 2018 | Category: Latest Articles

Is it just us, or was April like 4 seconds long?

Ready or not, May is upon us and so are those early summer vibes. We sure hope you’ve got your sunglasses ready, because the future is looking BRIGHT over here.

In fact, the Bloodstream’s summer schedule is booking up super fast and we cannot wait to see how the season unfolds. It’s going to be busy, but boy, is it going to be fun! Make sure you’re following us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter so you’ve got the latest & greatest info on where we’re hangin’ out. And keep reading the newsletter for a sneak peak at our first summer stop.

BUT FIRST: Calling all mamas (and non-mamas)… okay, you got us, CALLING EVERYONE.

Our BFFs at Sugar Mama’s Bakeshop are seriously the sweetest. They’re showing off their support of our local blood by supporting local mamas with CUPCAKES.

Okay so, the cupcakes are technically for everyone who donates or attempts to donate at one of our donor centers on Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 13). Only our North Austin and South Austin donor centers are open that day, so swing by becaue we’ll be drawing folks together from 10am to 3pm. You can make an appointment or just drop in. We’d love to celebrate with you, and we don’t want to have to eat all the delicious cupcakes by ourselves!

Memorial Day MAYhem

Well… Memorial Day won’t really be MAYhem (we hope), but the May puns just keep coming and we can’t stop ’em.

For those of you who can’t make it on Mother’s Day, how do you feel about kicking off your summer in the sweet, sweet A/C of one of our donor centers? We’ll be ringing in summer throughout the Memorial Day weekend with some delicioiusly cold, deliciously sweet treats that are sure to help you beat those summer blues before they start (wait, are summer blues even a thing?). Keep your eye on our social media channels for allllll the details.

Summer Blues…

…ON THE GREEN! We’re so, so beyond excited to tell you all that we’ll be back at Blues on the Green all summer long! To kick things off the right way, we’ve got a pretty freakin’ fantastic VIP giveaway happening.

If you donate (or attempt to donate) at any donor center or mobile drive May 11-20, you could win yourself a VIP pack full of amazing goodies to really enjoy the show.

CLICK PLAY above to get an eyewitness account of your future if you win our bluesiest giveaway yet (get it…because the Yeti is blue).

Spoiler alert: you’ll get your very own Yeti Roadie 20, full of everything someone needs to fully jam BotG. Just, like, make sure you check your calendar before you head out with your pack of goods.
