Proceeds to Benefit the Blood Bank of Alaska


It's great to get your Pirate on, but if you join our crew you'll have a hand in generating funds for the blood takers at the Blood Bank of Alaska. Buy t-shirts, donate money (not blood) at your favorite bar, and participate in their specials and activities. The bar that raises the most money wins the Anchorage Pirate Flag and bragging rights for the year.

To date, we've raised over $116,000 for the Blood Bank of Alaska, and with your help, we'll grow this number, save lives and sail on to brighter horizons.
