'For Clara' Screening
Sat, 1 April 2017, 4:30 PM – 6:30 PM EDT
Join Lifeline Pictures in the first charity screening of For Clara, a film that opens the discussion of organ donation. For Clara is the story of Andrew, an 18-year-old who has received a heart transplant. His donor is a teenage girl, Clara, who was killed in a hit and run. He deals with the guilt that he is only alive because someone else is dead. While waiting for a heart, he became friends with another patient, Matt, who is still waiting for a liver transplant. We also see how the family of the donor deals with their loss, and hearing their daughter's heart beat again. The film focuses on all aspects of organ donation - those who have received transplants, those who are still waiting, and those who are mourning the loss of a donor. You can check out more about the film at https://www.lifelinepictures.ca/for-clara/#intro-1.
As April is organ donation month, our event will be hosted on April 1st. The night will revolve around creating awareness and fundraising for this important initiative. We will be having guest speakers, raffles, food and beverages, and the screening of the film. Don't miss out and help us support organ donation! All our proceeds will be going towards the Trillium Gift of Life.
