Sports fans and good Samaritans can help save lives and earn free game tickets at the same time by donating at local blood drives.
Donate blood and receive Mets tickets
Assemblymember Ed Braunstein and the New York Blood Center will host a blood drive on August 15 from 4 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Bay Terrace shopping center.
“Every donation helps to save up to three lives,” Braunstein said. “Our hospitals are in need of your help, so I hope you will take the time to share this lifesaving gift.”
Donors ages 16 to 75 need to have photo identification and weigh at least 110 pounds.
Each will be mailed a pair of tickets to a Mets game this year, courtesy of the New York Blood Center.
