BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - An unlikely duo came together to celebrate the NFL drafts and give back to those in need.
Fans of the San Francisco 49ers and the Oakland Raiders got together on Saturday, May 10, for the "Battle of the Bay Blood Drive." Fans signed up and picked their favorite team to compete and see which one could donate the most blood.
"The Raiders clubs and the 49ers clubs have joined forces and we have a life-saving attitude," said Joyin Vina, a spokesperson for the Houchin Community Blood Bank. "Their mission today is basically to save lives and donate blood."
Those who signed up also entered to win a tailgate party package worth $200. Organizers of the event told 23ABC more than 60 people registered and donated to the Houchin Community Blood Bank.
