CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Cincinnati Bengals hosted their 12th annual Bengals Blood Drive Wednesday at Paul Brown Stadium.

Hoxworth says 833 people showed up to donate and try to win some cool prizes.

Blood donors not only received a limited edition Bengals T-shirt but they were automatically registered to win a signed Anthony Munoz jersey, plus a trip to the Pro Bowl in Hawaii.  As an added bonus, donors had an opportunity for a meet & greet with Coach Lewis, six Bengals players and everyone's favorite mascot, Who Dey.  

For anyone who wasn't able to attend the blood drive, Hoxworth Blood Center will be celebrating 'Bengals Week' at all donor centers through October 5th.

Those who donate blood at neighborhood donor centers will also receive a free Bengals T-shirt and automatically entered to win the Pro Bowl Trip for two. 

Donors can visit www.hoxworth.org or call (513) 451-0910 or (800) 830-1091 to schedule an appointment to donate. 

Due to the popularity of the t-shirt organizers are recommending appointments; however, walk-ins are always accepted.
