United Blood Services hopes to appeal to your inner marine biologist with a donation drive on Friday.
The Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay will host a blood drive from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
As part of the blood drive, donors who contribute will receive free admission to the Las Vegas Strip attraction's Haunted Shark Reef exhibit.
In addition, children 12 years old and under who come dressed in costumes will receive free entry.
UBS of Las Vegas said it is in urgent need for O negative blood, which is the universal blood type and the only type that can be transfused to patients with different blood types.
Donors are encouraged to make an appointment at 1-877-827-4376 or unitedbloodservices.org/LV.
