You can call it a success!
A record-breaking 138 people participated in Assemblyman Ed Braunstein’s annual summer blood drive on August 8 at the Bay Terrace Shopping Center.
Even the assemblyman stopped by to donate blood.
“Thanks to their generosity, hundreds of lives will be saved,” he says.
The New York Blood Center provided a voucher for a free pair of New York Mets tickets to all of the donors. Cord Meyer Development provided the venue (Bay Terrace Shopping Center), while Ben’s Kosher Delicatessen Restaurant & Caterers gave vouchers for free pints of soup to the first 100 donors.
Finally, Stop & Shop of Bay Terrace donated pastries, water and ice as well.
