DAYTON, Ohio - Hooray for Hollywood and for helping save lives! Get a free ticket to a summer blockbuster when you register to donate during "Movie Ticket Days" Friday, May 20 and Saturday, May 21 at the Dayton Community Blood Center, 349 South Main St.

Everyone who registers to donate will also receive the "Step Up to the Plate" baseball t-shirt. Make an appointment at or call (937) 461-3220.

Community Blood Center needs donors to help build the blood supply in advance of the Memorial Day weekend. Memorial Day signals the beginning of the summer vacation season, a traditionally challenging time to register enough blood donors to supply area hospitals.

The goal the "Step Up to the Plate and Hit a Double" summer blood drive campaign is to enlist first-time donors, remind all donors to make and keep appointments despite travel and other summer distractions, and to encourage those eligible to donate at least twice.

Donate at any CBC blood drive or the CBC Donor Center May 2 through Aug. 27 and you are automatically entered in a drawing to win four tickets to the Sept. 3 Cincinnati Reds vs. Colorado Rockies game at Great American Ball Park, followed by a Cole Swindell concert, plus $100 in concession stand gift cards.
