DAYTON, Ohio – Community Blood Center is scouting for donors this summer, and banking on a true American legend to help boost the summer blood supply.
An “Indian Scout Sixty,” descended from the historic line of America’s legendary Indian Motorcycle Company, is the grand prize in the CBC “Scouting for Donors Summer Blood Drive 2017” campaign.
Everyone who registers to donate blood at a CBC Donor Center or a CBC mobile blood drive from May 28 through Sept. 2 will be automatically entered in the drawing to win the Scout Sixty. Donors must be 18 by the end of the campaign period to win.
Eligible donors can enter the drawing a second time when they register for a second donation during the blood drive period. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment online at www.DonorTime.com.
CBC is promising a dream machine to one very lucky blood donor in order to help boost the blood supply during the challenging summer months.
The Indian Motorcycle website describes the Scout Sixty as, “Experty balanced. Lightweight. And primed with 61 inches of liquid-cooled American muscle.” The Scout Sixty is a cruiser with a 999 cc V-twin engine. The grand prize motorcycle in the “Scouting for Donors” drawing is red, Indian’s trademark color.
CBC will select the winner from a group of 10 randomly-drawn finalists in mid-September. Official rules are available at www.givingblood.org .
“Our mission, in every season of the year, is to deliver the necessary blood to our area hospitals, where it is counted on to save lives.” said CBC Donor Relations Director Andrew Keelor. “We hope the dream of owning a classic motorcycle will be an extra incentive to our regular donors and potential new donors during the summer months when people sometimes get too busy to donate.”
Everyone who registers to donate during the summer months will receive a free “Scouting for Donors Summer Blood Drive” t-shirt. There will be three t-shirt designs during the “Scouting for Donors” campaign.
“Giving Blood, Saving Lives, That’s How I Roll! Donate Blood” is the slogan of the first t-shirt, offered May 30 through July 1. The t-shirt is dark blue and features a winged motorcycle wheel emblem.
