Sunday, February 10, 2013 | 8:30 AM - 2:30 PM   
Torrance First Baptist Church - Gym - 2118 W. Carson St., Torrance
Community Blood Drive Your parent is going in for open-heart surgery, will there be enough blood? Your child has been in an accident and needs blood; does the hospital have the right type? Our nation's blood supply is sustained entirely by voluntary donations, yet fewer than 5% of Americans eligible to give blood do so each year. In the gift of blood . . . there is the absence of tangible immediate rewards in monetary or non-monetary forms; the absence of penalties, financial or otherwise, and the knowledge among donors that their donations are for unnamed strangers without distinctions of age, sex, medical condition, income, class, religion, or ethnic group.... The generosity displayed by blood donors, like other virtues, is learned over time. We acquire virtues first by acting, just as we do in the case of acquiring crafts...for example, by building we become builders. Take the first step to spur one another on to love and good deeds...stop by and give the gift of life that will stay in our community at Torrance First Baptist Church (tfbclife.org)/Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center (www.providence.org) Blood Drive, Sunday, February 10, 8:30 am - 2:30 pm, in the gym at 2118 W. Carson Street, Torrance. Call (310) 328-5030 for appointment…walk-ins welcomed!

James Armstrong Theatre [Torrance Cultural Arts Center] 3330 Civic Center Drive
Laugh non-stop as Robert Dubac ransacks his brain to answer the age-old question, “What do women want?” All while drinking a beer. Dubac has crafted a hysterical one-man multi-character show that tackles the battle of the sexes with precision and wit. With a shrug of his shoulders or a crook of his neck, Robert Dubac seamlessly transforms himself into five alter egos – each offering his own brand of misguided advice on how to straddle the gender gap. Hailed by critics and audiences alike, this show is a rare thing: a clever combination of theater and stand-up comedy that is laugh-out-loud funny, provocative, and insightful all at once. Two types of people should rush out to see this – men and women!
