EyeCon has teamed up with the Florida Blood Centers and are running a Blood Drive during the three day convention. A team from the Blood Centers will be on hand so that fans can make their donations with ease. Each registered donor will receive a free limited edition Tru Blood Saves Lives t-shirt. In addition, if you make your appointment online and keep that appointment you will be automatically entered to win a True Blood Prize Package that includes things like a Tru Blood Bottle and True Blood poster signed by the stars that are in attendance.

Included with attendance to this exclusive event is a private autograph signing, four free autograph tickets (a $100 value) and you can take your own cameras and items to be signed!! The event will take place Saturday, November 6th and a portion of the proceeds from this auction will go to the Avon Foundation for the Treatment of Breast Cancer.
