“A Day For A Life” Charity Paint Night
$50/ @ the Foundry Pub
The painting for the night will be a festive, holiday painting.
Over the past five years, “A Day For A Life” Charity has raised over $125,000 which included transforming the ICU waiting room, private family rooms and purchasing specialized surgical instrumentation at Windsor Regional Hospital. We are proud that this area has been aptly named the Trevor Louis Funkenhauser Gift of Life Family Waiting Room.
As we've worked to raise these funds, we have also been working hard to raise awareness about organ and tissue donation and have produced a video to help educate others. Organ donor registration rates in this area have improved; however, we have a long way to go related to every individual registering at beadonor.ca.
As this is a charity event, we ask for your help in supporting this great cause in hope that we can help those who are awaiting an organ transplant.
Finally, remember that Trevor's generosity has helped keep three people alive. Together, with your help, we can continue to make a difference in so many lives.
Thank you in advance for considering this worthy cause.
The Funkenhauser Family
FYI: One organ donor can save up to eight lives and enhance the lives of up to 75 others through tissue donation.
There are over 1,500 people on the waiting list for an organ in Ontario. Every three days someone dies waiting for a lifesaving transplant.
Registration saves lives. Families of registered donors almost always reaffirm consent when they see evidence of their loved one's donation decision. If they don't know what their loved one would have wanted, consent is given only 50% of the time.
Just 24% of eligible Ontarians have registered consent to donate. A signed donor card does not mean you are registered.
