DAYTON, Ohio - Blood donors can sail away to Margaritaville when they support the "Parrot Head Party" donation days June 24-25 at the Dayton Community Blood Center, or by registering to donate at any CBC blood drive for a chance to win Jimmy Buffett concert tickets.

Make an appointment to donate at or call (937) 461-3220.

Everyone who registers to donate June 20 through July 3 at any CBC mobile blood drive or the Dayton CBC Donation Center will be automatically entered in the drawing to win two tickets to the July 21 Jimmy Buffett concert at Riverbend Music Center.

Has your favorite Parrot Head donor t-shirt disappeared with that long, lost shaker of salt? The "beak is back" with the return of the "Parrot Head Party" exclusively at the Dayton CBC Donation Center.

Everyone who registers to donate Friday, June 24 and Saturday, June 25 at the Dayton CBC will receive a free Speedway $10 gas card and the special-edition "Parrot Head Party - Lei Back and Donate Blood" t-shirt.  The Parrot Head t-shirt and gas card giveaways are only at the Dayton CBC.

CBC will kick off the Parrot Head Party weekend with a Kona Ice bar for donors Friday, June 24 from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Dayton CBC. All registered donors get a free Kona Ice snow cone in addition to the Parrot Head t-shirt and $10 gas card.

CBC has a new online tool to move more quickly through the donation process. Donors can use DonorXPress at to complete the donor questionnaire before arriving to donate.

Donors using DonorXPress must complete the donation questionnaire on the day they intend to donate and bring a digital or printed copy of their Donor Pass to show at donor registration.
