Sean Hannity honored “Hero” healthcare workers in New York by gifting 500 tickets to attend a New York Yankee game.

The Fox News host revealed that he had “purchased 500 Yankee Tkts for The Hero medical workers all over NY” on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic.

“Challenge met,” Hannity tweeted Sunday, sharing about his part in the #CombatCovid19Challenge after being nominated by Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt.

Hannity noted that he had called his friend Randy Levine, the Yankees’ president, to secure the tickets, adding that Levine was joined by Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner and the team to donate an additional 500 tickets.

The Fox News host then passed the torch and challenged “my friends” Lara Trump and Eric Trump to participate in the Combat Covid-19 Challenge, which was launched by Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York earlier this month.

The campaign is aimed at getting the members of the public to help communities amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“Do something that will make a difference in your community to make it through this crisis. Do it in a way that’s safe. Use PPE. Don’t risk anybody’s safety,” Cruz said in a video introducing the endeavor after delivering breakfast and coffee to the Houston, Texas, Police Officer’s Union.

“Help somebody else. And then challenge three more people. We’re going to see if we can get a whole lot of people engaged and making a difference, coming through, fighting this pandemic. And we will beat COVID-19,” he said.

Gillibrand responded with a video of her own.

“I just got a call from Ted Cruz, and he asked me to combat COVID-19 with some public service. And I thought ‘what a great idea!'” the New York Democrat said.

Earhardt, who had challenged Hannity and Fox News anchor Melissa Francis, delivered groceries to her local community center. She was initially challenged by her “Fox & Friends” co-host Pete Hegseth, who delivered “food & supplies for those in need” in his community.

Other Fox News faces, including “America’s Newsroom” anchor Ed Henry and Fox News correspondent Griff Jenkins also participated.

Fox News hosts Shannon Bream, Dana Perino and many from other networks and outlets have also participated, proving that compassion and service have no political sides.
