Team for Transplant Launch & Lunch June 18/05

Team for Transplant Launch & Lunch at Ontario Place, Saturday, June 18, 2005 11AM to 2PM

Join Team for Transplant at Ontario Place for a day filled with family, friends and fun!

Team for Transplant is a community of individuals who understand the importance of giving back to the Transplant Program at Toronto General Hospital (TGH) by raising funds and awareness. These patients and volunteers have had a transplant themselves or know someone who has.

Last November, over 400 guests attended the inaugural Birthday Ball: Celebrating Life Through Transplant Excellence, a fund raiser organized by the Team for Transplant which raised over $140,000 and marked the 15th anniversary of the Transplant Program and the first anniversary of TGH’s new Transplant Centre.

This year Team for Transplant is planning a “Launch & Lunch” event with a barbecue and entertainment on Saturday, June 18, 2005, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., at Ontario Place. Team for Transplant sees this as an opportunity to meet with others who have had similar organ transplant experiences and a way for the transplant community to give back through supporting fundraising efforts. Funds raised at the “Launch & Lunch” will benefit the Team for Transplant Campaign for the Transplant Program at Toronto General Hospital.

Volunteers to help with the event will be most welcome. Volunteers played a large role in the success of the Birthday Ball and your help will be very much appreciated at Ontario Place June 18th. To volunteer please contact Melanie Litwin at (416) 340-4800 ext. 6895 or email Melanie

Tickets are $25 per person and include a “Play All Day Pass” to Ontario Place.
