The West Hamilton Beach Volunteer Fire Dept. will be hosting a blood drive for the New York Blood Center this weekend and offering donors a chance to go to the Super Bowl.

The drive will be held Saturday, July 6 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the WHBVFD firehouse located at 102-33 Davenport Ct. in Hamilton Beach.

Every registered donor will receive two free tickets to see the New York Mets. Also, every donor will be entered into a sweepstakes to win two tickets — valued at $2,500 — to Super Bowl XLVIII, which will be held on Feb. 2, 2014 at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

Every person who is present to donate blood as part of the campaign will receive a red Super Community Blood Drive wristband.

For questions on eligibility, visit nybloodcenter.org or call 1 (800) 688-0900. A photo or signature ID is required. The NYBC advises donors to eat well-balanced meals before donating.

To schedule an appointment, call John Passarella (646) 210-7015. However, walk-ins are welcome.
