SCOUTING FOR ONE LAST DONOR - FINAL DRAWING FOR MOTORCYCLE THURSDAY, SEPT. 21 AT CBC

September 20, 2017

DAYTON, Ohio - We will soon know the winner of the "Scouting for Donors Summer Blood Drive" grand prize Indian Scout Sixty motorcycle.  Ten finalists will gather for the final drawing Thursday, Sept. 21 at 5:15 p.m. at Community Blood Center, 349 South Main St., Dayton.

The 10 finalists will each select a sealed envelope. They will open their envelopes simultaneously. The celebration will then begin for the finalist whose envelope contains the golden ticket, making that donor the new owner of the Indian Scout Sixty.

CBC will webcast the drawing with a Facebook Live stream on the CBC Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/communitybldcenter.

The "Scouting for Donors" summer campaign was a success thanks to the support of area donors. Everyone who registered to donate with CBC from May 26 through Sept. 2 was entered in the drawing for the Indian Scout Sixty.  CBC completed the campaign with a total of 22,312 registrations to donate whole blood, platelets and plasma. The total included 1,811 first-time donors and 17,719 blood donations.

The computer randomly chose 10 finalists. They represented eight different counties across the 15-county CBC service area. Miami and Warren Counties each had two finalists. The others come from Preble, Champaign, Montgomery, Darke, and Butler Counties in Ohio and Union County, Indiana.
