CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Getting tickets to a Panthers game is going to cost a pretty penny, unless you re a PSL owner or have a generous friend.

There is one other option, though, but it ll take a little bloodshed.

Anyone who donates blood or platelets to the Community Blood Center of the Carolinas will be entered into a raffle to win two seats in row 2 on the 45 yard line.

The raffle closes at 5 p.m. Saturday.

The donations will help with the weather-related shortfall across the country. Blood drives were cancelled nationally due to severe conditions.
