DAYTON — Donors will get a chance to win an American classic Indian Scout Sixty motorcycle by supporting the Peerless Food Equipment community blood drive Friday, Aug. 25 from 8 to 11 a.m. The Community Blood Center Bloodmobile will be at 500 S. Vandemark Road, Sidney. CBC encourages donors to schedule an appointment online at or call 800-388-GIVE.

Everyone who registers to donate will receive the “Scouting 4 Donors – Ride with Passion, Give with Heart” T-shirt and will be automatically entered in the drawing to win the Indian Scout Sixty motorcycle. Donors must be 18 by the time the “Scouting for Donors Summer Blood Drive” campaign ends on Sept. 2 to win.

The “Ride with Passion, Give with Heart” t-shirt is green and the design features a motorcycle engine in the shape of a heart with the CBC blood drop logo.

CBC is scouting for donors this summer and banking on a true American legend to help boost the summer blood supply. The “Indian Scout Sixty” is descended from the historic line of America’s legendary Indian Motorcycle Company,

Enter the drawing to win the Indian Scout Sixty by registering to donate May 26 through Sept. 2 at a CBC Donor Center or any CBC mobile blood drive. Eligible donors can enter the drawing a second time when they register for a second donation during the blood drive period.

The Scouting for Donors Final Drawing event will be Thursday, Sept. 21, at the Dayton CBC. Ten computer-selected finalists will choose identical envelopes, but only one will contain the “golden ticket” for the grand prize. Official rules are available at

Summer is a challenging time for maintaining the regional blood supply due to the interruptions of the high school summer break, family vacation travel and outdoor activities. CBC encourages donors who must miss appointments to please reschedule as soon as possible. The CBC continues to seek the support of type O whole blood donors.
