For many decades, beloved founding parishioner and retired pediatrician, Dr. Michael Martini led the annual American Red Cross Blood Drive at Corpus Christi Church, the American Legion and for the Pacific Palisades Optimist Club.
At the age of 97 he is passing the baton to others. Take time to honor Martini for his years of sparking blood drives by giving the gift of life on Sunday, August 21, from 9a.m. to 3 p.m., in the Corpus Christi Parish Hall, 880 Toyopa Drive.
Giving blood is a way of thanking Dr. Martini for all of his community efforts to help secure much-needed blood.
Donors in August receive a $10 e-gift card of choice and will be entered into a lottery with a chance to receive gas for a year ($6,000 value). Rcblood.org/fuel.
