Milwaukee Hilton City Center
Combining dancing, rivalry, and fun, Spotlight on Life is a unique celebration of the gift of life. Representatives from donation and transplant organizations take professional dance lessons and compete toe-to-toe on the dance floor.
The event leaves the crowd cheering, and promotes organ, tissue, and eye donation. Patients, families, and supporters tune-in across the country via a live-stream to join the celebration at home.
Proceeds enable the National Kidney Foundation of Wisconsin to continue offering free programs and services for transplant recipients, living donors, patients and their families, and healthcare professionals throughout Wisconsin.
Download the Event Support Opportunities information packet. Event proceeds enable the NATIONAL KIDNEY FOUNDATION OF WISCONSIN to offer programs and services to transplant recipients, living donors, individuals waiting, and patients and their families.
The unique fusion of the stories of transplant recipients and their donors will be celebrated and honored at Spotlight on Life. By creating “pairs” of items and experiences that capture the interest of our guests, you can help raise the funds we need to support patients and their families. Please consider donating items that combine, blend, or mix a variety of things or focus on twos, couples, and doubles. Download the Auction Donation Form for more details.
