American Red Cross Blood Battle Blood Drive @ University of Montana
Nov 1 – Nov 18 all-day

Before the University of Montana Grizzlies and the Montana State University Bobcats hit the field for the annual football game, students, alumni and fans have the chance to help the Grizzlies win back the bragging rights at the eleventh annual American Red Cross Blood Battle Blood Drive by rolling up a sleeve to donate.

The annual battle is a challenge to see which school can collect the most blood donations. The Bobcats have won the battle the last two years. The Grizzlies, however, have a secret weapon to tilt the blood donation scoreboard in their favor this year: those who come to donate blood at one of the drives listed below will be automatically entered to win two free tickets to the president’s brunch and the big football game Nov. 19.

The Biblical Dinner @ Calvary Chapel Church in El Centro
Nov 5 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Imagine yourself transported to time before electricity, before upright seating or silverware, to a place illuminated only by ancient oil lamps, warmed by the laughter of friends who are prepared to give their lives for your safety. Imagine yourself reclining at a table where each bite or sip taken holds both ancient relevance and soul-level significance. Welcome to The Biblical Dinner.
