(San Francisco, CA) – November 22, 2016 – Holiday haters rejoice!The San Francisco Dungeon’s cast of surly Barbary Coast characters offer a multitude of ways to escape the horrors of the holidays – crowded shopping malls, annoying family visits, and sappy Christmas movies. Hang with them in the Dungeon this holiday season for a “Presents for Prisoners” Toy Drive, and an updated twist on “bloodletting” with the American Red Cross. Here come the details:

What: “Presents for Prisoners” Children’s Toy Drive benefits Project Avary

When: Now through December 16, 2016

Why: Benefits Project Avary that offers long-term support, resources, guidance and training for children with incarcerated parents

How: Tease and taunt despicable San Francisco Dungeon prisoners with an unwrapped toy and Sgt. Gunter will donate them all to Project Avary, a Bay Area non-profit that supports the children of incarcerated parents. He’ll also grant you 50% off a tour of The Dungeon, including the new Escape Alcatraz drop ride and show where lucky prisoners jump to freedom from The Rock. Look for the “Presents for Prisoners” donation bin in The Dungeon’s lobby and drop a toy; presents will be delivered to children in time for Christmas. Sorry, prisoners…


What: American Red Cross Blood Drive on Fisherman’s Wharf

When: Friday, January 6, 12-6pm

Why: We’ve come a long way since the horrible, dungeon days of bloodletting! Every two seconds someone in America needs blood and here’s a fun way to help.

How: The American Red Cross joins the Plague Doctor at The San Francisco Dungeon to take the blood of holiday do-gooders on Fisherman’s Wharf, creating a community-wide effort to collect as much blood as possible for those in need this holiday season. Come prepared with photo ID and one hour of time. All blood donors receive a voucher for a complimentary visit to the Dungeon, plus a long-sleeved American Red Cross holiday t-shirt and refreshments. A donation station will be set up on The Dungeon’s second-floor event space, overlooking The Wharf and Bay. To sign up, go and enter sponsor name DUNGEON.
