NYC Tech Blood Drive @ Tipping Point Partners
Saturday, September 28, 2013 from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM (PDT)
New York, NY
Because we want to reward your good deeds, and because this is all about our community coming together for the very worthy cause of saving lives, we have reached out and around and gathered a series of treats, goodies and prizes for all donors who take the time, show up, and give blood.
Topping the list is a grand prize, drawn to go to one lucky winning attending donor from Richard Crawford Luxury: as Richard himself put it, "If they have the space, I'll bring the Scotch!"
You read that correctly.
Richard will host one of his famous Scotch Tasting Nights for the winner, and as many friends as they can (or want to) fit in as large a space as they can (or want to) find. No limit on headcount, to be arranged directly with Richard (based on his availability), with all necessary Scotch provided by Richard.
(Like him on facebook for updates on his current travels, upcoming projects, and other amazing give-aways from his friends and luxury lifestyle partners)
If that isn't brilliant enough, the NYC Blood Center also has their own giveaway running, in which all donors through January 17th are entered for a chance to win 2 tickets to Superbowl XLVIII, taking place this year at the Meadowlands on February 2nd.
Other prizes, goodies and treats come from our friends at Etsy, Uber, Tekserve, delivery.com, Plated, Vita Coco, Cabot Cheese, Ola Foods, Pretzel Crisps, Chambers Street Wines, Fairytale Brownies, Love Crave, and more.

***NYC Blood Center has issued a bulletin that there is a critical blood shortage throughout NYC right now on O-, B-, and A- blood types***
