Donate blood, enter to win tickets to see Taylor Swift


DAYTON — Blood donors can win tickets to see Taylor Swift live when they ​register to donate during the month of May in the “You’ve Got Good Blood” Drive.

Everyone who registers to donate May 1-31 at any Community Blood Center blood drive, or the CBC Dayton Donation Center is automatically entered in the drawing to win two tickets to see Taylor Swift perform live June 30 at Cincinnati’s Paycor Stadium.

Make an appointment online at, call 937-461-3220, or use the Donor Time app. Everyone who registers to donate will receive the “Sunshine & Saving Lives” beach towel.

May brings new challenges to maintaining the blood supply because of the end of the school year, the Memorial Day holiday, and the beginning of the summer travel season.
