RED CROSS BLOOD DRIVE ON HALLOWEEN

The IU School of Law/ Red Cross Blood Drive is on Oct. 31. This year, because the event is being held on Hallowe'en, a Vampire Raffle is being held. In order to enter to win one of dozens of prizes, including a $300 Seiko watch from GoldCasters, a pair of 14 kt. gold earrings from Victor Settle, or $5 and $10 gift certificates for local shops and restaurants, you only have to donate a pint of blood. The Law School organization whose membership donates the most pints (per capita) will have a special happy hour hosted for them by Nick's English Hut. Faculty and staff can donate as well, and can designate an organization to help the competition along. Look for posters listing the prizes and sponsors. Later, there will be sign up sheets for scheduling donation times for your convenience. In these troubled times, let's all do what we can to help others in need. Giving blood means giving life.
