The Greatest Gift is Life – Let’s Celebrate It!
Celebrating Life began in New York City in 2015 as a party to honor donors, recipients, supporters and volunteers with an evening of great food and great friends. We consider everyone involved with Gift of Life to be part of our extended family, and Celebrating Life has become an opportunity for everyone to get together and share our collective success in saving lives.
Every event features an emotional first meeting between a blood stem cell donor and recipient. Many of the participants are donors or recipients of a transplant themselves. Gift of Life has facilitated more than 450 donor and recipient meetings over the years.
Celebrating Life started in New York City and Los Angeles. In recent years we’ve added other cities including Seattle, Boston, and Miami – so wherever you are, you can share in the fun.
Celebrating Life events are organized by the Young Professionals Committee in each city. If you’d like to join an existing committee or start a new one in your area, click here.
