Blood donations fall off dramatically during the summer when vacations and travel occupy more of everyone's time. The need for blood, however, does not decline and supplies rapidly dwindle.

All donors will be entered into a raffle to receive two tickets to the 2014 Super Bowl. For information, to sign up, or to volunteer, call 914-747-2408 or send an email to angela.usobiaga@verizon.net.

The Dangerous Summer - Highline Ballroom
August 21, 2013 - New York

Straightforward, earnest rock music seems to be a contradiction from the direction popular music has strayed as of late. The need for genuine lyrics, purposeful direction, and accessible melodies has been long overdue. Hailing from Ellicott City, MD, alternative rock foursome The Dangerous Summer specializes in crafting throwbacks to the days when music was charged with hope and contained a much-needed brand of sincerity. The band, which takes its moniker from the Hemingway novel of the same name, remembers its humble beginnings, among them its first NYC show, which took place in a basement and included an audience of five. However, that low attendance record soon became a thing of the past once Hopeless Records came calling, finding the band's quintessential rock pleasers just as inviting and impressive as did those few basement patrons.

Bret Michaels - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
August 22, 2013 - New York

As a rock star, reality star, spokesperson, businessman, and philanthropist, Bret Michaels does more jobs in a single day than most people do in an entire lifetime. Depending on the hour of the day he's a cultural icon, a rock god, an entrepreneur, a TV star, a father, the face of the American Diabetes Association, a supercross enthusiast, solo artist, Poison frontman, and a generous donor to a myriad of charitable causes. Michaels first rose to fame as the frontman of Poison. As one of rock's most iconic and enduring bands, Poison defined the fast, gritty, and glamorous rock 'n' roll scene. Since the band's beginning, Poison has achieved massive success- releasing eight studio albums, four live albums, and selling over 30 million records worldwide and 16.5 million records in the U.S. alone. The band has charted 10 singles in the Top 40 on Billboard's Hot 100 including the number-one single, "Every Rose Has It's Thorn." Twenty-five years after their debut, Poison is still recording music and performing together. Bret Michaels' solo career has been equally successful: his most recent solo album, "Custom Built," released in July of 2010, topped the charts, reaching #1 on Billboard's Hard Rock list. His current solo tour, "Get Your Rock On" is selling out arenas across the country and his forthcoming solo album of the same name will be released this summer. Bret Michaels may have been in spotlight for decades, but he is certainly showing no signs of slowing down.
