Golf Fore Life 2019
Isabelle Ellis Memorial Golf Classic
Friday, September 20, 2019
Details coming soon.
Isabelle died at the age of three waiting for a heart transplant. Her family started this annual golf tournament to help Gift of Life pursue its mission to provide support, awareness and success of organ, eye and tissue donation through education, mentoring and collaboration with partners and individuals in the transplant community.
Life Savers Rally 2019
Educate. Inspire. Talk About It.
The Life Savers Rally educates and inspires students about organ, eye & tissue donation through presentations of loss, hope and survival. This one of a kind event will change a student’s life as they become aware of the power of donation. We hope students are inspired to offer an awareness platform in their high school.
2019 Life Savers Rally is free of charge and lunch is provided. If necessary, funding is available for bus transportation, as well as substitute teachers.

Do it to support organ, eye & tissue donation.
375 guests attended Gift of Life’s annual fundraiser on April 20, 2019. After the tours guests gathered at the Grand Hall for silent & live auctions, as well as a program hosted by Nick Haines, KCPT. The program included moving testimonials from kidney recipient Brendan Conner, donor mother Carthesa Dillard Hutson, heart recipient Gary Dixon and cord blood recipient Kori Hines.
Special thanks to the Gift of Life board of directors, our sponsors, auction item contributors and 50 volunteers that made this special day possible!
We still await some accounting to determine exactly the amount that was raised.
Final number will be announced soon!
