Blood drive Friday
Each year, LifeSource offers area high schools the chance to earn valuable scholarship money, and Oak Lawn Community High School has earned the money for the past five years, according to a press release from the school.
Schools who wish to participate must host at least two blood drives per year, and parents and community members also can have their donations credited to Oak Lawn High School by providing the donor code of OL94, the release said.
The school, at 9400 Southwest Highway, will host its next blood drive Jan. 31 in the Spartan Gym.
Students are encouraged to donate blood during their gym period, the release said. Students must be at least 16, and a parent permission slip is required for students who are only 16, the release said.
Individuals are eligible to donate blood every 56 days, according to the release. To find a donor center, visit www.lifesource.org.
‘Calling all Chocoholics’
The Chicago Ridge Public Library, 10400 S. Oxford Ave., will host “Calling all Chocoholics!” at 7 p.m. Jan. 30.
Chef Kate Bradley will oversee the all-chocolate cooking class, featuring real chocolate pudding, mint chocolate bars, white chocolate raspberry bars, and chocolate-dipped fruit. Recipes and samples will be provided.
