Life Savers Foundation of Orange County, which grants financial assistance and raises awareness of the crucial need for living organ donors, is presenting its inaugural gala on Thursday, January 19 at Newport Beach’s premier waterfront destination, Balboa Bay Resort. Founding Chair Mrs. Carole Pickup, Executive Director Dr. John Huffman, and Co-Chair and Organ Donor Heidi Miller cordially invite the community to this special event to support the launch of Life Savers Foundation of Orange County.

The evening begins in Balboa Bay Resort’s Grand Ballroom with an arrival reception at 6 p.m. including a hosted bar and hearty appetizers, followed by a prime rib dinner and dessert buffet at 8 p.m. The gala concludes with dancing and entertainment starting at 9 p.m. by Jerry Mandel and the Irvine Barclay Theatre Jazz Band with Bruce Cook.

“The care and well-being of living organ donors is the first step in saving lives in need of vital medical care,” says Founding Chair Carole Pickup. “At Life Savers Foundation of Orange County, it’s our honor to help raise financial support and awareness to this critical cause. Taking away the financial burden that many organ donors face will enable so many more generous individuals to consider saving a life and choosing to become an organ donor.”

The purpose of the Life Savers Foundation of Orange County is to provide financial assistance to living organ donors paying for expenses related to lost wages, lodging, travel, medical appointments, and more.
