A Fundraising Event Benefiting Taylor's Gift Foundation

Taylor’s Gift Foundation - a national organization dedicated to a life-changing mission to increase organ donation to Regift Life, Renew Health and Restore Families - was established in April 2010 following the unexpected death of 13-year-old Taylor Storch. The foundation has been pivotal in efforts to register new organ donors both in the United States and internationally.

Proceeds from this event will support Taylor’s Gift mission, including their Legacy Gift program. This program is Taylor’s Gift greatest give-back. As the only organization in Texas providing financial assistance to Donor families in need, the foundation has been able to be a life-line to these special families who have given the gift of life. Without donor families, there would be no transplants.

It's a live-saving effort.
