Big Sunday Hosts Halloween-Week Blood Drive (and Other Spooky Events)

The good folks at Big Sunday are hosting a whole Wicked Week of Halloween-related events next week, including one that’s particularly bloody, but not intentionally spooky – a Cedars Sinai Blood Drive.

According to Big Sunday, there has been a shortage of blood during the COVID-19 pandemic, so the Cedars Bloodmobile will be returning to the Big Sunday office, 6111 Melrose Ave. on Wednesday, October 28 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  If you would like to make a donation, you can make an appointment here.  Cedars staff will be running the event, and all possible safety measures will be observed.

Meanwhile, other Big Sunday activities for the holiday week include:

Monday, October 26  – 4-5 p.m. via Zoom
How to Paint a Pumpkin: A master pumpkin decorator will provide instruction.

Also, if you can’t attend but would still like to pitch in, Big Sunday would love your help with candy donations for the bags they’re planning to donate (along with costumes), to hundreds of underserved kids.  See the Wicked Week link above for donation information.  They need 10,000 pieces…which sounds like a scary goal, but should be fright free if you can help!
