SPOTLIGHT ON LIFE is an annual celebration of the gift of life! It is a recognition of the lives that have been saved or improved by transplantation and of the people who have made an organ donation. It is also reminder of the 2,249 children, men and women in Wisconsin still waiting for a life-saving transplant.
The event combines dancing, rivalry and fun along with a gourmet dinner. The evening features a dance competition between representatives from organ procurement organizations, tissue banks, transplant hospitals, and other related organizations that have donated their time to take professional dance lessons at the Fred Astaire Dance Studio. Additionally, each represented organization tries to raise the most donations, before and during the gala, in order for their dancer to win the People’s Choice Award. Every $5 donated in the name of a dancer represents one vote.
Patients, families, and supporters across the country are able to tune-in via a live-stream to join the celebration at home.
Proceeds enable the National Kidney Foundation of Wisconsin to continue offering free programs and services for transplant recipients, living donors, patients and their families, and healthcare professionals throughout Wisconsin.
