The Yankees are teaming up with Manhattan's Gotham Hall to sponsor a New York Blood Center donor drive to help aid in the relief effort following Hurricane Sandy.

The event will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Gotham Hall, 1356 Broadway at 36th Street.

The first 300 donors will be rewarded with vouchers for a pair of tickets to a Yankees game next season.

“We thank the New York Yankees and Gotham Hall for helping us replenish our community blood supply after Hurricane Sandy,” NYBC vice president Rob Purvis said.

Purvis added that the NYBC is continuing to open up new locations and drives. For the latest information, visit nybloodcenter.org.
