Lifesavers Breakfast

Lifesavers Breakfast

Thank You Lifesavers!

Through the November 8, 2017 Lifesavers Breakfast

You Celebrated Organ, Eye and Tissue Donation

 & Supported Programs that Inform, Inspire and Save Lives! 


Some 500 members of the Donate Life Northwest community gathered with: master of ceremonies, Sally Showman; board chair and living kidney donor, Tom Sanchez; executive director, Leslie Brock; national award-winning Done Vida Ambassador, Alejandra Cortes; presenting sponsor Pacific Northwest Transplant Bank manager, Barbara Thompson; and keynote speaker and donor family member, Beth Oliphant Hoover. Others shared their stories in the videos, below. 

Together, we learned about the tremendous need for more registered donors and living donors and were inspired by the hope of those who wait; we heard about innovative Donate Life Northwest programs and were inspired to do our part; and we shared the peace and joy that keynote speaker Beth Oliphant Hoover has found in carrying on the generous legacies of her brother, David Oliphant; father Doug Oliphant; and daughter Melissa Venutti. 

With a grateful liver recipient anonymously matching gifts of $1,000, guests and sponsors contributed more than $160,000 to fund programs that build understanding and appreciation for the gifts of life, sight and health. 

If you could not attend this year, please consider doing your part to support lifesaving programs through the year-end match campaign, here.

Check out the photobooth picture gallery on the Donate Life Northwest facebook,  and please tag yourself and share these, as well as the videos, below.


Thank You Sponsors!
