remember laura, get free beer

On March 31, 2006, my good friends Ali and Adam are hosting another Blood Drive in memory of my sister, Laura Esguerra Adams, who passed away September 3, 2005. We are also announcing the formation of the Laura Esguerra Adams Foundation (LEAF), and I'll post more about that as the information becomes available.

The last blood drive broke all records for blood donation for Kaiser, and although through Ali's and Adam's tremendous efforts the minimum goal has already been reached, we'd like to sign up more donors.

Here are the details on the Blood Drive and the after-party:
It's that time again...Are you ready to party and have a great time? No, it's not another divorce party or birthday party. This one is special...I am even throwing in a 2- for-1 deal in during the happy hour.


Of course, there's one tiny catch. I need your blood again.

On Friday, March 31st, Adam and I will be hosting another Blood Drive in memory of our friend, and beloved Cole's regular, Laura (July 5, 1969 - September 3, 2005).

Once again, my friends from Kaiser will be drawing your blood at Adam's penthouse (home of the best unobscured views of the downtown LA skyline). The Blood Drive will be held from 12 p.m. - 8 p.m. I need 50 people to set this up, so email me or call me to set up an appointment ASAP -- appointments can be at the top of each hour to cut down your wait. The drive will start by appointment at 12 p.m. and continue until all the people signed up are done...

All donors will receive a thank you gift bag which includes a Super Lotto Ticket, a chance to win a fabulous prize, and 2-for-1 gift certificate for free pints of Spaten at the Cole's after party.

That night, I'm hosting a party for all our friends and donors at Cole's (you don't have to donate to come). One of the best local bands in town -- I See Hawks in LA -- will be playing in the back room. The free beer will be flowing, and we'll all compare Band-Aids.

Get Free Beer, Listen to the Hawks....you can't do better on a Friday.

If you enjoy reading this blog, please donate a pint and if you can't - please convince someone you know to donate in your stead. You don't have to donate blood to enjoy the party at Cole's, but I hope you'll make the effort. Thank you.
