DAYTON, Ohio - Donors have until Saturday, Nov. 2 to enter the Community Blood Center Lifesaving Adventure Blood Drive drawing for a chance to win the YETI Adventure Package. Make an appointment online at or call (937) 461-3220.

Everyone who registered to donate from April 29 through Nov. 2 are automatically entered in the drawing for the grand prize YETI Adventure Package, which includes a Tundra Cooler, Base Camp chairs and 27 genuine YETI accessories.

CBC began the Lifesaving Adventure campaign by challenging donors to demonstrate their courage, commitment and compassion by donating from spring to fall. That support proved vitally important after the Memorial Day tornado outbreak and the Oregon District mass shootings.

Another campaign goal was to offer more opportunities to donate platelets and plasma, which are critical for the treatment of cancer, trauma, transplant, and burn patients. Donors with blood types A, AB, or B positive are in high demand. Find out more at  or talk to an apheresis specialist at (937) 461-3220.
